Amanda + Ezra

The spring and summer of 2015 it seemed to rain almost every day, and my dream since being a little girl was to have an outdoor wedding. We married in a small town south of Oklahoma City, and on one side of us we could see a rainstorm rolling in while on the other side, beautiful sun. We prayed a lot this day, and thankfully by 6:00pm the sun was shining. We ended up with a dreamy sunset - it was perfect. 

There are so many parts of this day that we love, but something that always sticks out in my memory is the first look. I never wanted to do a first look because I had built up this romantic idea of Ezra seeing me for the first time when I walk down the aisle. Logistically I knew it made sense to take photos before, so I went with it. 

This first look was magical. For that moment it was like time was standing still — we were the only two people in the world. The intimacy of the first look gave us time to bask in one another’s presence, pray together, share our nerves, excitement, and love. Whether you do a first look or not, I highly recommend taking some times with just the two of you, it is your day after all.
