TODAY.com reported that Caleb wanted to say a prayer before their big moment, but the couple didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony. So, Caleb stood on a staircase while Maggie leaned against a wall around the corner.

The two held hands as Caleb said a prayer and Maggie fought back tears.

"I prayed to God for my beautiful and intelligent wife that he blessed me with and the amazing family I was marrying into,” Caleb told TODAY.com.

"It relieved me to know the person I was getting ready to marry felt the same way about God,” Maggie said.
