We chose to break tradition and do a "first look" photo shoot before the ceremony, which so much fun. Our ceremony was set to kick off at 3 (it was a little postponed due to the 49ers playoff game), so it was nice to make use of the early afternoon light before the guests arrived. It was halftime at 2, so the boys were more than willing to pose for photos. When I approached Jeffery for the first time, instead of turning to greet me, he turned away and wouldn't look at me, hence me laughing in the fourth photo. Seeing him calmed my nerves immediately, and from that point on I was really excited.
