From the bride: We wanted the whole day to feel pretty relaxed, so we elected to do a first look before the ceremony with just the two of us, and then we had some time to walk around the beautiful property and greet some of our family as they arrived. One of my favorite memories of the day was being able to gather with our immediate families and the wedding party for a prayer and some quiet moments right before the ceremony, so everyone was relaxed walking into it.
The whole day went by in a flash, of course, but I would highly recommend getting ready on-location with friends around, and also spending some time before all the festivities start with just the two of you. Those were certainly the most relaxing parts of the day for me, and it really decreased all the logistics for us. We just had to get ourselves there in the morning and then enjoy the rest of the day.
