Our timeline got a little bit away from us by this point, and with guests starting to arrive for the ceremony, we had to make a quick decision about the location for their first look. This little catwalk was right outside the rooms where Mandy and Jessica got ready at The Venue. I asked Aubryn to step in for some test shots and finally decided that the location, while not the "prettiest" and surrounded by AC units, was the most private space for Mandy and Jessica to see each other for the first time. I think Jessica's reaction only proves my point.

It just didn't matter. The only people in the world for these three minutes were Mandy and Jessica.
