ASHEVILLE, NC — A photographer’s powerful wedding photo is going viral. The image shows a Marine and his bride to be praying at their wedding Saturday with their backs turn to each other.

WLOS-TV reports that U.S. Marine Corps Corporal Caleb Earwood, wanted to pray with his bride Maggie, before their ceremony. Since the groom isn`t supposed to see the bride before the wedding, the two families brought them together with their eyes closed. They joined hands and prayed.

Dwayne Schmidt Photography posted the image to Facebook over the weekend and it’s been shared thousands of times.
