Karli & Rich’s wedding was an amazing, beautiful event. Karli was absolutely stunning in her dress and their wedding details were thoughtful and oh-so lovely. So really, it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that all of that loveliness captured the attention of Style Me Pretty. It’s still a huge thrill, though! I’m so honored to have my pictures featured on such a prestigious blog. It was wonderful to be a part of Rich and Karli’s emotional day and it was fabulous to work with the talented Holly Heider Chapple and Vicki Grafton of My Simple Details.
And, of course, I have to highlight Karli’s wonderful words about their First Look. I always try to encourage my clients to see each other before the ceremony because it sets a lovely, calm tone for the day and it gives us plenty of time for portraits. But, really, nothing will convince my future clients better than Karli’s own fabulous description of it. Yay!! Thank you, Karli. :)
“Our “first look” was one of our best memories of the day. We had not considered it from the beginning, but we had been told by our photographer that for those couples that do see each other beforehand, there is an overwhelming sense of calmness amongst the couple during the ceremony. I knew that I would be a wreck if I didn’t see him before so I started to work on convincing my “ultra-traditional” groom that we needed to see each other beforehand. He finally gave in, and I think he was even happier to see me during our first look than I was. Up until we saw each other for the first time the nerves and butterflies had built up so much that we almost could not take it any longer. It was such a relief to see one another. The second we saw each other all the nerves just melted away and it felt like it was just the two of us there. The feeling continued throughout the wedding ceremony. Seeing Rich smiling at the end of the aisle just made me smile even more and I kept that smile on my face the entire day.”
And, of course, I have to include a few photos from their First Look. :)
