Our wedding: First look photos

We wanted to do a first look before our temple sealing, especially since I wasn’t going to be wearing my wedding dress during the ceremony (it wasn’t white and the sleeves weren’t completely lined).

It was a very special experience for us.

Our photographer Stephanie had Cristian meet her at our venue, (which was less than 10 minutes away from the temple, by the way!) while I got dressed and had him wait where she wanted to take the pictures with his back turned. She met me at the top of the trail, and my sister helped me walk down to him (it was a little treacherous with my heels, train, and the wet leaves on the path that had a downward slope, haha).

I walked up behind him and put my hands over his eyes. I recently asked Cristian how he was feeling/what he was thinking in that moment. He said reality was hitting him — that this was it. He would finally get to be with me for eternity.

I kept my hands over his eyes there for a bit, let go, and turned him around.

He took a good look at me and we embraced.

And if I couldn’t love him any more, Cristian started to cry.

After 5 years of thinking he was gone for forever, he was going to be mine. Forever.
