VIRAL PHOTO: Marine Prays With His Bride-to-Be
A powerful photo of a Marine praying with his bride-to-be went viral this Memorial Day weekend.
The photo, taken by Dwayne Schmidt Photography, shows U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Caleb Earwood praying with his then-fiancée Maggie moments before the couple walked down the aisle in Asheville, N.C.
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.
