Wedding: Rachel and Charles (part 2)

It's that moment...
The moment that begins the rest of their lives...
The moment that the groom first sees his bride...
He gets choked up... a smile takes over his face...
...he laughs nervously, but excitedly.

That... is my very favorite moment. It's the reason I love weddings.
In my opinion, one of the VERY best wedding trends is the "first look"; The opportunity for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time before the ceremony. I think it is quite possibly the best things since sliced bread. And as much as I like bread... the first look gives sliced bread a run for its money!

At Charles and Rachel's wedding, they opted for a first look and it was absolutely the most genuine, sweetest, most amazing moment I've witnessed since starting my business. It was perfect.

They have such an amazing relationship, and they are so sweet in their interactions with each other. It was so much fun shooting the two of them together, so I've dedicated this entire post to them. Because they are that cute. So Rach and Charles... here you are. You're adorable! :)

As I said, Rachel and Charles opted for a first look and it was absolutely beautiful! I was holding back tears. Here are a few shots from their first few moments together.

WOW Diandra! These photos are just exploding with emotion! I think I actually forgot I was looking at photos for a minute, and felt like I was there in that moment. I don't think photos can get any better than that.
