24 pictures of grooms seeing their brides for the first time

In News by Carmel Lobello / September 12, 2012

Wedding season is coming to a close, it’s time to put away our party dresses, sober up and start replenishing our savings accounts for next summer’s ceremonies.

To punctuate the closing of the season, (or just because he/ she felt like it), redditor sexydeathtime posted a link to an Imgur page of “first look” pictures.

If you’re not a wedding veteran, the “first look” is that heart-melting moment when the groom and bride (or groom and groom, or bride and bride) see each other for the first time, sometimes in a private, picturesque setting, sometimes as the bride walks down the aisle. It’s like, the most adorable moment of the entire wedding (IMHO), especially when the groom spontaneously combusts into tears.

Here are 24 first looks below. ‘Til next season.
