20 Breathtaking Moments When A Groom First Sees His Bride


Every head in the room turns to look as a bride walks down the aisle.  It’s her most important moment.  But, have you ever looked to see what the groom’s face looks like during this moment?  It is usually one of awe and love and it’s one of the most tender-hearted things in the world.  Most couples believe it’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride before her walk down the aisle, but it’s now becoming more and more popular to do what’s called a ‘first look,’ where the bride and groom share a private moment where he sees her for the first time.  It’s also a tender moment.  So, whether the groom sees his girl during a first look or her walk down the aisle, the moment is the same– pure magic. Here are 20 breathtaking moments when a groom first sees his bride.
