Blush Historic Cedarwood Wedding

Today's wedding is something special, for sure. For several months (even one year) before the wedding, Kyle and Courtney went back and forth on the idea of having a first look. They did not want to 'ruin the moment' of the bride walking down the aisle and seeing the groom for the first time, but in the end both were so happy they decided to have a first look, for many reasons...

"After all the pressure, planning, and business of dealing with the wedding, the first look was a intimate/private moment the two of us got to share alone," Courtney describes. "He also may have shed a few tears that he would not have wanted everyone else to see. During the first look, it started thunder storming, [and] rain was coming down sideways under the small Cedarwood deck that provided minimal covering. At a time when you would expect most brides to lose it, I felt I embraced it. Weather was the only thing I could not control that day, and the rain almost made it more exciting. My dress, my hair, my shoes and even my officiant got soaking wet, but it was all fixable. Before we were even done with pictures in this location, the sun came out and blue skies appeared."

"Immediately following our first look," Courtney continues, "Kyle and I washed each others' feet. This humbling act of service and devotion to one another was Kyle's idea, but like most of his ideas, I was on board. When our officiant retold us the story of Jesus washing the disciples feet and the translation of it in a marriage, it brought tears to my eyes. Honor and respect are very important to both Kyle and I and holding onto this moment for the rest of our lives is amazing."

We love how this beautiful couple was both invested in the details of making the wedding beautiful (you can't miss the hard work that went behind this gorgeous day!), but not so focused on the material elements that they couldn't let got and enjoy the uncontrollable, immaterial moments of the day itself.
