Can You See Why Photographer Calls This Marine’s Wedding Pic The ‘Best Ever?’
The picture was taken just prior to the wedding ceremony of U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Caleb Earwood and his fiancé Maggie in Asheville, North Carolina. Sticking strong to tradition, the two had decided not to see each other before the wedding, but they still wanted to pray that God looked kindly down upon their marriage.[fb_embed_post href=”https://www.facebook.com/dwayne.schmidtphotography/photos/a.163245613880012.1073741827.163245533880020/361759110695327/?type=1/” width=”850″/]
So, with the enlisted help of their family, they were able to do just that – around a corner.
Joining near a staircase, the two kept their eyes closed to ensure they wouldn’t see each other before the ceremony. With the bride donned in her wedding dress and the groom in his dress blues, the two clasped hands and let out a quick prayer.
During that time, a photo was taken by Dwayne Schmidt Photography, capturing the incredible moment. It has gone viral after being posted to social media.
“I have photographed alot of weddings. This has to be one of the best things i have ever got to see much less photograph,” Schmidt wrote in the description of the picture he posted to Facebook. “Before the ceremony and before they saw each other Caleb said a prayer for their marriage and lives. AWESOME!!!”
Too many times do we hear of how Christianity is being censored and spat upon, but not this time. Stories like this are beyond uplifting as two adults join together with Christ in order to make the most of their marriage – and the quiet Christian population is loving it.
If only more people did things in such a way – it’s enough to make you wonder if the divorce rate here in America wouldn’t quite be so high.
