We LOVE shooting in Cypress Hills, and we love it more when we have clients like Jarrid & Arielle who put complete trust in us the whole day to just "do our thing", and gave us plenty of screen time with their bridal party!
These two did a first look, and completed all of their family photos prior to the ceremony, which allowed them to spend the ENTIRE day together, and not just the afternoon. I know it's a touchy subject with brides-"he's going to see me BEFORE?! It will ruin him seeing me coming down the aisle!?!!" TRUST me, when you get a moment, just the two of you, no nerves, no "everyone's eyes on us"-just the TWO OF YOU to experience that special moment in your true, comfortable selves, there's nothing that's more special to be a part of. At that moment all your nerves are calmed, your staring into the eyes of your soon to be spouse and you can enjoy the excitement together! And after witnessing MANY "First looks", I can promise you, it never takes away from the groom's emotion as his bride comes down the aisle. It's just a moment you can't take meaning away from.
Jarrid & Arielle's day was a blast and the decor was INCREDIBLY DONE by Wired 4 Weddings. The weather was calling for rain, but it held out for these two until they at least were under the cover of their reception tent! We couldn't have asked for things to go more smoothly.
Jarrid & Arielle, we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to be a part of such a special day in your lives. We wish you the two the world and hope you'll always be able to look back on this day and smile!
