Seriously Romantic First Looks That Will Make Your Heart Flutter / by Kristen Bradley

Many contemporary couples are choosing to have an intimate first look away from family and friends before making their way down the aisle.  Take a look at these previous Sip and Twirl couples below that will completely melt your heart.

Meghan + Brendan's First Look at the Montelucia

Lots of couples choose to do a first look to release out some of the pre-ceremony nerves and butterflies.  We love these photos below because both the bride and the groom are absolutely beaming!  Their excitement and laughter radiates through the photos, and this lighthearted and joyful energy can carry throughout the ceremony.

Jessica + Andy's First Look at Legacy Ballroom

Another reason that couples choose to do a first look is because the moment can be quite emotional, and couples want to keep it private.  Take a look at these gorgeous photos below from Jessica and Andy's wedding, and you will know exactly what we mean.  Before scrolling below though, make sure to grab a box of tissue!

Julia + John's First Look at a Paradise Valley Private Estate

Finally, one practical reason to have a first look is actually for the photos!  Take a look at how beautifully captured these photos are.  There can be challenges during the ceremony to capture the bride and groom's faces for the exact moment because of the many guests that are standing and potentially blocking views.  Choosing a moment before the ceremony kicks off will ensure that nothing is missed in that special life moment.
