I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with our three yorkies, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (five with Rusty, Lucy, & Ethel) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with something warm and delicious and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

A Different First Look | Bridesmaids

I am seeing so many new things with each wedding that we shoot and I absolutely love it. This past weekend at Pat & Sabrina’s wedding, Sabrina wanted to have a first look. But not with Patrick. With her bridesmaids. :) And it was such a wonderful few minutes with just her and her bridesmaids.

The girls had seen Sabrina get her makeup and hair done, but when it came time for her to get into her dress the girls stayed in the other room. While Sabrina, her mom, personal attendant, flower girl, and I were in the bedroom getting her in her dress, the girls patiently waited. And waited. And finally it came time for the girls to see her in all of her bridal beauty.

I followed Sabrina as she walked out of the room and in clear view for her friends to see – and there was not a dry eye among them. :)

Brides, if you’re thinking about having a first look with your girls, I say go for it. It’s so exciting and adds a hint more of suspense on your big day. :) Stay tuned for more of their beautiful wedding coming on the blog later this week, friends!!
