First Look Friday: Emily + Grant by Off The Beaten Path Weddings, Photos by onelove photography

Welcome to another First Look Friday! We hope you remember this awesome couple… to us, they will always remind us of the word, “WOOPA” as they created it and made it the theme of their wedding. Haven’t seen it yet? Check out WOOPA here. But first, check out how this Bridechilla™ sneaks up on her guy… happy FLF!

First Look Friday: Jen + Bryan by Off The Beaten Path Weddings, Photos by Catherine Hall Studios

Since we are less than 10 days from the start of our season, we thought we’d throw it back to one of our weddings from a couple years ago! Welcome to  First Look Friday, or should I say FLASHBACK Friday, since we are featuring Jen and Bryan today? It doesn’t matter, because this wedding was beautiful and they are also celebrating their anniversary this month (May 14th); with tulips, bow-tie’s, and a pup to make the day even better – it’s hard to only share one single moment, but we know it’s one you’re going to love: 

Jen and BryanThank you SO much to our friends at Catherine Hall Studios for capturing this special moment between Jen and Bryan! Jen’s face holds all the emotion that words could never say, there is just so much joy… Enjoy the rest of this Bridechilla™’s chill day on Style Me Pretty.

And of course, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

First Look Friday: Father + Daughter by Anna Delores

Happy First Look Friday! Last week we shared a shot-by-shot of Julia + Tom’s First Look… Tom’s face was incredibly endearing as he watched Julia walk down the aisle. That is why we love the first look… but is it always going to be about the groom? No way! The only thing more “awww” worthy than a tear-struck groom is seeing the father of the bride’s face when he FIRST sees his little girl… see below!

FIRSTLOOKFRIDAYannadeloresSee? Sweetest. Thing. Ever. Thank you SO much to Anna Delores for capturing this special moment between this father and daughter! And be sure to check out our Bridechilla™ Tip on why it’s so great to capture the first look between bride and father. With that being said, Hopefully everyone has a great weekend… see you on our next #FirstLookFriday!

We’ve certainly seen some of the best bride and groom first look photos. Although they are quite the tear-jerker and SO full of love, sometimes a Bridechilla will want to wait til she is walking down the aisle to see her future spouse for the first time. But here is one way you can have the endearment of a first look photo in a whole new way – have it with the one walking you down the aisle, your dad.

We’re almost convinced this is even more touching than a first look with your spouse! 3949293bf1d8f268d5cc1b58bc8b97c0

“You fathers will understand. You have a little girl. She looks up to you. You’re her oracle. You’re her hero. And then the day comes when she gets her first permanent wave and goes to her first real party, and from that day on, you’re in a constant state of panic.” – Stanley T. Banks (Father of the Bride)

“They say that from the instant he lays eyes on her, a father adores his daughter. Whoever she grows up to be, she is always to him that little girl in pigtails. She makes him feel like Christmas. In exchange, he makes a secret promise not to see the awkwardness of her teenage years, the mistakes she makes, or the secrets she keeps.” – Anonymous

Of course, we have to think of our chill mama’s too, this idea can easily work with any parent or close relative.
