I have always wanted to stay traditional and have that first moment be when I walk out of the doors to see him. However, the location we planning on only allows pictures in the rest of the museum while it is open to the public, and we both REALLY want our pictures in the rest of the building. We cannot have the ceremony until after hours, so we would have to do the pictures before. I know there will still be that "wow" moment, and I know the guy doing our photos will get it. (I have worked with him on 8 occasions.)
So ladies- what is your experience with this? Did it take away from the ceremony, or did it help nerves? I know I will still get emotional during the ceremony, seeing as strangers walking dow the aisle even makes me tear up.
