First Looks are becoming a popular option among our couples here at Baxter Barn. With the photos being completed before the ceremony, the couple can enjoy the entire wedding with their friends and family.

How they work. You arrive first with the videographer and photographer, facing your back to where your partner will be arriving. When your partner arrives, they walk towards you and tap you on the shoulder, you then turn around and have that “aisle moment” and share that first look, just between the two of you.

After you share a precious moment with your beloved other half, your bridal party joins you so you can get your photos. With close attention by the venue coordinators, to make sure no guests that decide to arrive early see you, all the formal photos are completed before the guests arrive. We then place you inside, so your guests can arrive and take a seat at the ceremony. We get your celebrant into position, with your partner up the front (unless you decide to walk down the aisle together) and the ceremony commences.

By having a first look and doing your photos before the ceremony, you have the luxury of enjoying every moment with your guests, without any compromise. You still get the first “aisle moment” look, all captured by your videographer and photographer, all the bridal party photos and then you are left to enjoy every minute of your wedding with your guests.  

We ensure every couple that comes to the barn, get the wedding they dream of. Whether it be a first look, a traditional aisle moment, arriving and walking down the aisle together, having groomsmen as flower girls, we have seen and done it all before, so please make sure you have a discussion with your coordinator to make sure you get exactly what you want.
