Wedding Recap: Our First Look

After spending the morning getting ready for the wedding day, I was filled with excitement as I could not wait to see Brian.

The girls and I loaded up into the elevator to meet up with the boys and so Brian and I could have our “first look.”

Once we arrived in the lobby of the Sheraton, we reglossed our lips, made any final adjustments and then we were headed to Monument Circle so I could see the man I was going to marry.
