There are very few moments in our lives that will only happen once and even fewer that leave a lasting imprint on our hearts. Like when a bride and groom see one another for the first time on their wedding day, there’s an understandable amount of speechlessness and tears. To see the love of your life in all of his or her splendor makes for the most unforgettable moment.
The Laurel Loves first looks because, let’s face it, nothing else in the world can create these kind of reactions. Enjoy!

What is it that makes this moment so special? One groom put it this way, “Seeing my bride walk down the aisle calmed my nerves and made me tear up thinking my life is starting new with her! Not to mention she looked unbelievably stunning, that didn’t hurt either.”
While one bride put it like this, “There’s just so much time spent building up to this day, that when you see your soon-to-be husband for the first time, it’s almost like you have permission to let it all out. I loved seeing my groom. I couldn’t really see, though, through my tears of joy.”
While some love taking that moment to hold one another with tears in their eyes, we also love how some say forget the tears! and just have a blast in their first look moment.
Whether you laugh or cry, twirl or hug, take your first look before the ceremony or walking down the aisle, the Laurel Loves first looks. Our deepest gratitude to the many who have allowed us to be a small part of this moment they’ll never forget.
