“Do you remember that moment of your first kiss as husband and wife?” This has always been a fun question to ask married couples around me… when they receive their wedding photos or maybe when they are celebrating their anniversary. For Michele and Brad, their first kiss as husband and wife turned out to be their first kiss EVER! I mean EVER! How magical is that to share your first kiss on your wedding day!
Look at all the cute details – including their choice of shoes! The bride wore white TOMS while the groom wore black ones.
There was a lot of anticipation when Michele and Brad were getting ready — they hadn’t seen each the day of the wedding and the day before. After snapping a couple shots of the groom, I headed back to the bride’s room to show the bridesmaids how handsome the groom looked. At that point, Michele was even more anxious to see Brad…. and vice versa we teased the groom by only showing the groomsmen photos of Michele.
Wedding planking …
… followed by a prayer.
I could just feel Brad’s happiness at seeing Michele after such a long wait…..
And the first kiss ever between Michele and Brad was witnessed by all their family and friends .. I felt so honored to document this moment of their relationship. By the way, their first kiss lasted about two minutes!
Thanks to Melvin Gilbert
