So many amazing things to say about Christy & Ricky’s wedding.  From the way all the details came together – to the love all their family and friends show for them.  It was truly a wonderful thing to experience.  Their wedding blog will be split into parts like many of my posts have been lately.  There are so many wonderful images to share that I just want everyone to appreciate them all!

Today we are going to see the getting ready and the first look images! Later posts will include the ceremony, our time at Soldiers and Sailors Museum for their wedding portraits, as well as the Cranberry Marriott reception with some nighttime portraits!

Getting ready for the ladies started in Christy and Ricky’s home – There were tons of photo ops and I LOVED it. From there we did the first look in the church parking lot, and then off to the ceremony we went! Love them.  Here are some favorite getting ready and first look images!

Oh, I just LOVE First Looks – They do the heart good.  

The Brides advice for those planning: “Get as much done as you can in the time leading up to the wedding. That will allow you to completely enjoy the day, and have a blast! The day of the wedding- take deep breaths! “
