In the midst of wedding season, it's easy to focus on bouquets of fresh orchids or thick paper invitations instead of the real commitment of marriage.
A snapshot of a young North Carolina couple praying before their wedding is a much-needed reminder of the incredible bond between spouses.
TODAY.com reports photographer Dwayne Schmidt caused a viral sensation Saturday by sharing a photo from the wedding of 21-year-old, US Marine Corps Corporal Caleb Earwood and his 22-year-old bride, Maggie.
Shortly before their ceremony began, the pair decided to say a prayer together.
Because it's often considered bad luck for the groom to see his bride's wedding dress, the attendants led the pair to opposite sides of a corner.
As they broke down in tears and grasped hands, the couple prayed together in a photo, which has more than 46,000 likes on Schmidt's Facebook page.
