It's a common practice for brides to remain unseen by their grooms on the wedding day -- of course, that is, until she walks down the aisle.
In a similar vein, grooms-to-be aren’t supposed to see their future wives in their wedding dresses until the actual wedding.
Combined, these traditions amount to a ton of suspense -- and excited curiosity -- prior to the reveal on the big day.
Mitchell Reilly Pictures came up with a brilliant idea: It created a montage video capturing grooms' reactions upon seeing their brides for the first time.
From surprised and awestruck to full-on teary, the men's reactions are positively moving, and this video will make you “aww” harder than anything you’ve ever seen.
