Our Wedding: First Touch

This is a moment I'll have to revisit later because I only have one picture to show you today. 

Years ago while reading Peanut Butter Fingers I read about the authors wedding.  Julie shared a moment that was so special and private for her and her husband. She called it "Behind The Door" and I was obsessed with this moment because it felt like the perfect way to connect with your future husband but not see him before the right moment. 

I always dreamed about doing this and once our photographer Carissa asked us if we were doing a first look I told her no but I really wanted to do a " behind the door" shot. She called it a "first touch" and I knew that yes that's exactly what I wanted.

I wanted to hold Tim's hand and tell him how much I love him. I wanted to know he was there and feeling nervous too but so excited to meet me at the end of the aisle.

That's exactly what we got.

Now this is the only picture I have, taken by one of my bridesmaids. I could barely see Tim and he couldn't see me at all. I held his hand as Carissa took pictures of us and we told each other how excited we were and how we'd see each other soon.

When the professional pictures come in I will share more because I'm sure they will make this moment look complete. It was perfect and I am SO glad we chose to do this!
