Wedding photo goes viral

Here's an astounding photo caught by a wedding photographer of a Marine praying with his bride before they walked down the aisle.

According to the article: "A wedding photographer has captured the touching moment a US Marine sought out his bride-to-be so the pair could say a prayer for their marriage together just moments before they walked down the aisle and said 'I do'.

To ensure he wouldn't see his bride before the ceremony, US Marine Corps Corporal Caleb Earwood and his fiancee Maggie, both from Asheville, North Carolina, kept their eyes closed and turned away from one another as family members brought them together for a prayer on Saturday before their Memorial Day weekend wedding.

The photo shows Caleb in his Marine uniform and Maggie in her wedding gown as they hold hands and pray near a staircase with their backs turned away from each other.

And the poignant image quickly became an internet sensation, sparking a flurry of positive responses."

Too beautiful not to share. It brought tears to my eyes -- how about yours?


  1. Few folks bother to pray before their wedding, I suspect. Maybe more should.

  2. How honoring to the Lord!!
    More couples could do this too,
    but sadly we don't hear about it.

  3. We had our wedding here, the food was brought out at the right time, spaced out, and they never made us feel like they were rushing. Another plus is at Wedding location in Chicago they didn't put the big plate of food in the middle table. We spend a lot of effort and money in the centerpiece so we didn't want them to move it half way through the party.
