The photo of newly weds, Caleb & Maggie, praying as they tightly held their hands, set the internet buzzing when it was shared by their wedding photographer Dwayne Schmidith. Caleb, a US Marine and his new wife captured the hearts of the nation when a beautiful photo of the two praying together just moments before their ceremony, have revealed what was going through their minds during those emotional few minutes.
North Carolina photographer captured a powerful image on Saturday showing a touching moment between the bride and and her Prince Charming just minutes before their wedding ceremony.
“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”, Caleb Earwood, 21 Today.com.
Because the couple didn’t want to see each other until the ceremony, Caleb stood on the staircase. Maggie, 22, leaned up against the wall to avoid making eye contact.
“When I first grabbed his hand, he was shaking really bad, so I knew he was really nervous,” Maggie said. “It relieved me to know the person I was getting ready to marry felt the same way about God.”
“I was lucky to witness such a moving moment let alone capture it. I have been fortunate enough to photograph several weddings, but this is a moment I will remember forever”, says their wedding photographer.
