The U.S. Marine and his bride who were seen praying together in a viral photo taken just moments before they said their vows have revealed the story behind the touching image.
U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Caleb Earwood, 21, said he and his wife Maggie, 22, wanted to be sure that they asked God for guidance and thanked him for his blessings before they began their life together.
“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,” Earwood told Today.com. “I prayed to God for my beautiful and intelligent wife that he blessed me with and the amazing family I was marrying into.”
The picture was taken minutes before the ceremony, after Earwood asked family members to bring him together with Maggie. The two met near a staircase, he in his Marine uniform and she in her wedding gown; they kept their eyes closed so as to not see one another before their nuptials.
