A First Look moment. "What the hey is that?" you say? Well, my dear. It's a moment, or series of moments, in which you & your betrothed see one another for the first time on your wedding day.

Under a radiant September sun, family from near and far gathered around the Rose Garden gazebo. There were tears of joy, a sweet grandmother taking snapshots, & a ship sailing smoothly across the big lake. All the while, Ann
