Consider Doing a First Look-
I know first looks aren't for everyone, but here's the reason why I love them. 1) A first look will allow you to front load your timeline. In other words, you will be able to get your wedding party photos, family formals and photos of the two of you done before the ceremony takes place. This makes the time between the ceremony and reception less stressful and you can get to your reception sooner. 2) A first look is intimate; giving you time to hug, talk, kiss and just be together without the dictation of a ceremony. 3) There is no pressure for the groom to pull up a grand reaction in front of all the guests. With a first look there isn't an audience and it often helps both of you to just lean into your love.
