With so many wedding photos to take, many couples are deciding to pose for their bridal party portraits before the ceremony, allowing them more time to spend with their guests at the reception. Rick and Katie didn’t want their guests to have to wait on them but they also didn’t want to miss the magical moment of seeing each other for the first time. So, Naples photographer Ashley Brockinton of Ashley Brockinton Photography, suggested a “First Glimpse”.
The morning of their wedding, Rick arrived at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers first and waited in the Moonlight Garden for his bride to arrive. The photographers were able to catch the moment on film when Rick got his first glimpse of Katie in her wedding gown.
The two exchanged gifts to one another in the garden before inviting their bridal party to join them for pictures. With plenty of time before the ceremony, their photographer was able to get beautiful shots throughout the Estates. “When it was time to walk down the aisle, I felt so much more relaxed,” said Katie when asked about seeing her groom before the wedding.
