When writing that title, my gut is in knots as I am 50/50 on the subject.  Personally, when Nick and I got married, we chose not to do a first look.  We both had a very traditional mindset on our wedding day where we refused to see each other before I walked down the isle.  […]

Should You Do a First Look?
