I love the idea of doing the first look at the alter - so so sweet! However, knowing me - I knew I couldn't do it! I would be a crying, bubbling mess and makeup would be running down my face. Not cute!
So we did what a lot of people do: first look pictures! We did it at Volunteer Park in a shady, grassy area and it was just perfect. Nick finally got to see the dress I had picked out six months earlier and it was a memory I will have with me forever.
