This photo of a young bride and groom on the day of their Memorial Day wedding has been making its rounds on the internet on Tuesday and for a very heartwarming reason.
Marine Cpl. Caleb Earwood and Maggie Earwood were photographed holding hands during a prayer right before they made their way to the altar, but they made sure to keep their eyes shut as to not break tradition and rack up some bad luck.
Well, after people started to see how emotional the happy couple was, it came out that Maggie’s tears of joy were all thanks to Caleb’s powerful prayer!
In an interview following the wedding, Caleb, 21, shared that his words to God consisted of:
“We were about to take our first steps in life together, and we didn’t want to take a step without it being in God’s will. I prayed to God for my beautiful and intelligent wife that he blessed me with and the amazing family I was marrying into.”
Maggie added onto her new husband’s sentiments, saying:
“When I first grabbed his hand, he was shaking really bad, so I knew he was really nervous. It relieved me to know the person I was getting ready to marry felt the same way about God.”
Even if you’re not religious, that’s still a really cute story.
The story took a devastating turn, however, when the couple proceeded to go to Dollywood for their honeymoon — But hey, you can’t win ’em all!
