Our Wedding Day {"First Look" & Outdoor Portraits!}


Okay sorry, I know I told a tiny fib... {wedding details} will come later!
I want to stick to posting in the order of which the events took place!
So after {hair, makeup and prep} aka getting ready we headed to a local, state park for outdoor photos and our "first look" pictures! When we arrived my heart was pounding! I was so excited to see Justin for the first time! I couldn't wait to see him all dressed up in his tux! More than anything I couldn't wait to see his reaction when he saw me for the first time!

As soon as I stepped out of the car the nerves kicked in high gear...

My MOH helping me walk to the gate... :)
My handsome hubby waiting for me!
Me at the gate waiting for him to turn around... {SO NERVOUS!}
The first time he saw me :) :) :)
He told me how beautiful I looked and how happy he was!
It was the best moment ever!
 I'm so glad we did the "First Look!"
After our happy moment was captured the picture mania began...
Take a look! :)

Our second photographer captured this picture of the bridal party when we were doing our individual picture! I LOVE it! :)

1.2.3.... JUMP! :)
I loved my dress...
and my cathedral veil!

After our pictures at the state park we headed to a giant sunflower field!
I'm SO glad my photographer talked me into going here even though we were running out of time!
These are some of my favorite pictures! They turned out perfect! :)

After the sunflower field we headed back to the church for family pictures and lunch!
After that was over the photographers wanted to get a few more pictures of me individually and with the flower girls and ring barer!

How precious is this? :)

When we arrived to the reception we had time to kill before our grand entrance...
so of course, we decided to take MORE pictures!
Besides, we couldn't let this beautiful background go to waste!

These are just a few of my {Outdoor} favorites! :)
I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do!

Ceremony recap coming tomorrow! :)
