We’ve all seen it. That moment to groom turns around to see his bride walking down the aisle towards him. The relief, the smiles and of course, the tears.
When Dallas Wilson Wedding Films posted a one-minute video on Facebook they probably didn’t expect the clip to get more than 15 million views. But, it did (that’s not to mention the 207,000 shares and over 133,000 reactions).
So, what’s so special about this wedding film? Well, it’s not your typical, “Hey look, it’s a bride in a pretty dress” or an, “Oh my gosh, did you see the sweetly silly thing that the flower girl just did?” type of clip. Instead, it’s all about the groom’s reaction!
The music starts, she appears and all eyes are on the bride. As you’re looking at her princess tiara, flowing dress and ear to ear smile, what are you missing? Her groom’s reaction. With so much attention put on the bride’s walk down the aisle, all too often family and friends miss the best part – the groom’s expression the first time that he sees his bride-to-be.
The video perfectly captures a range of emotional, intense and simply, “Ahhhhh, that’s so sweet” reactions from groom after groom. Smiles, joy, loving laughter and sometimes an overwhelming burst of tears make this video a monument to the marriage day!
One viewer commented, “Never gets old to see a man seeing his bride walk down the aisle and say in his mind, “How lucky am I … To have a woman take my name and start a family, and become one heart and one should and one life.” I will never forget the day when my wife walked down the aisle and I counted to ten seconds hoping I wouldn’t cry…But no, to see someone who gets to spend the rest of their life with me, this man’s dreams have come true.”
We can only imagine that this is somewhat along the lines of what the grooms in the clip are thinking too. I can never get enough of seeing grooms crying so, grab a few tissues (or an entire box) and take a look for yourself.
