{Early} Moments- Final Mirror Check

It has been quite a while since we last looked at {Early} Moments, a part of the Moments series, but so far we've seen images of the bride as she has her makeup done, as she is helped into her wedding dress, and as she applies the finishing touches to her look by securing hair accessories, jewelry, and shoes. Yet in this process of getting ready, there is one step we've not yet seen.

I don't know about you, but I must admit almost anytime I leave the house, I try to take a quick glance in the mirror to ensure nothing about my appearance is out of place. On a wedding day, this look in the mirror holds even greater importance.

It is more than simply making sure your look is put together and straightening anything that is askew. It is taking in the day as you realize where all your preparation has lead you and also reflecting on where you are headed. It is truly seeing yourself as a bride.

For this reason, the images that follow-- bride's taking time for a final mirror check-- seem to be a natural conclusion to all the other {Early}Moments.

That final mirror check is oh so important. Don't want lipstick on the teeth or anything.

Thanks so much for the encouraging words about my story. It was a little scary to do, but enjoyable nonetheless.
