You could say that we’re big on moments here at Junebug Weddings, and there’s no moment that gets us worked up like an emotional first look. The bride looks so insanely gorgeous, the groom is trying not to cry, and they are both overflowing with excitement that they’ll be saying “I do” in just a short time. In honor of our favorite part of a wedding day, here are 17 of the most amazingly heartfelt first looks from real weddings.

1. This groom burrowed his head in his bride’s shoulder to make sure she was real.
