As everyone began to show up, you could literally feel the excitement in the air! This was a large wedding party and everyone was determined to do their fair share of making sure the bride and groom had nothing to worry about. The bride and groom showed to the venue and it was time to get dress and excited! 

Karen's sisters and mother worked diligently to make sure she was ready for her first look with her future hubby!

The guys worked together to get vest tightened, boutonnieres pinned, and cufflinks on!

This couple wanted a moment together before life got crazy. They decided that at blind-folded first "look" was the perfect way to spend time together. Curtis was escorted to their spot by his brother and Best Man. He was blindfolded and waited patiently for his beautiful bride!

Karen enlisted the help of her two sisters (her Matron and Maid of Honor) to help her carry her gorgeous train down the stairs to meet her man!

The couple just lived in the moment, spoke with each other, and prayed for a wonderful future together.
