Why You Should Consider a First Look on Your Wedding Day

Joy n’ Company always keeps it real with our couples! And we are here to shed some light on the MAIN reasons to have a First Look on your big day!

In case you’re wondering, the first look is new addition to modern weddings… and it’s genius! This concept allows the Bride and Groom see each other prior to the ceremony to make the most of their big day. How so? Allow us to explain:


The moment the two of you see each other is just for YOU.  There isn’t a crowd starring at the groom waiting to see what his reaction is going to be. Therefore, the response is much more authentic! The intimacy of the moment can lead to some of the BEST feels!
