Having a first look, both with my dad and my groom, was the best decision I could have made. You’ll see I gave my parents and Gani some gifts. I made a strong effort to shop small + local for the wedding, so all of the gifts were bought from shops on Etsy.com. You can read more about why I did that here and find links to all the gifts.
When Gani proposed, he re-wrote the lyrics to Blackbird by The Beatles to be about us. He performed it to me on guitar, but he never actually got through the whole thing. So, I surprised him my learning his version of the song and recording it for him. That’s what he’s listening to in our first look pictures.
