You’re my people if you like to have fun! That means I couldn't care less of the order of events as long as you’re laughing and enjoying each other. I understand we all need a timeline but girl, if you want pie, instead of a cake, go for it! Have a first look with a friend or hey, how about a first look between your groom and his mom? If it’s raining and you hired me to get those natural light photos, don’t be afraid to get your dress a little dirty.
