Yay or Nay: Pictures before the wedding ceremony?

I love that moment when a bride and groom see each other for the first time, the excitement you can see on both of their faces is priceless.  So the question is, do you save that moment for when you walk down the aisle or do you have a private moment just the two of you beforehand?  These yays and nays always have me torn!  There is something to be said for keeping with tradition and waiting to see your bride or groom for the first time as you walk down the aisle to spend the rest of your lives together but on the other hand the option to keep that moment all for yourselves and take your pictures before the festivities begin can really take the pressure off, not to mention allow you more time after the ceremony to party and enjoy your guests...and each other of course!

Speaking from personal experience, no matter how well planned out the timing is on your big day there is usually something that is bound to throw a wrench into the mix.  Now that I have had the chance to walk down the aisle and do things the traditional way I would like to try the other way and have most of our pictures out of the way so that the rest of the day is open to relax.  Now if I could just get my husband to agree to wedding number two!

So what I want to know from all of you out there are you thoughts on this topic.  Pictures before or after?

See you swoon,
