A sweet photo of a bride and groom holding hands just before they walk down the aisle has gone viral. One look at it and you'll understand why.

Couple on Wedding Day

With the groom sitting around the corner to uphold tradition of not seeing the bride before she walks down the aisle, the picture is worth 1,000 words.

And then some.

That quiet and intimate moment - a touching scene of stillness before their big day - struck a chord with more than 65,000 people on Facebook.

How did it come about?

Bre Curtas, 23, and her bridesmaids were fussing over last-minute details in her dressing room when her future mother-in-law walked in with a message.

“Sweetheart, your groom has called for you,” she said.

Wondering what for, the bride says her heart fluttered as her mother-in-law pulled her to a corner where her groom-to-be, Josh, was waiting.

Sliding back in a chair around the corner so that Josh couldn’t see her dress, she managed to squeak out, “Hi sweetie! We’re getting married today!”

“I know, baby, and I want to pray with you before we do,” said Josh, 24.

“Everything culminated in that moment,” Curtas told The N.Y. Daily News. “Faith was a huge part of our relationship and plays a role in everything we do.”

The Lynchburg, Va., couple held hands as the wedding planner rushed around, and photographer Kimberly Burke captured the moment.

The wedding itself was a blur, but not those 40 seconds.

“I think this photo has gone viral because it’s not about me,” Curtas said. “No one is looking at it my dress or the venue or my hair. That stuff doesn’t matter."

“I think people are touched because it’s two young people taking a minute to forget about those things and thank the Lord for what he’s done.”


Ferguson claimed various with the new benchmarks request the facilities to do details those people in her ninecounty coastal location are actually working on for some time.


Sophomore Chris Clay had 231 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 2 managing back Chris Anderson additional ninety three yards together with a TD. Four other Dragons merged for 81 yards and a single way more touchdown, indicating Hutchinson ran for 405 yards on 56 carries for any 7.2 standard.


Top post. I look forward to reading more. Cheers


Bre and Josh are both Liberty University graduates, as is my daughter. My son will graduate from LU in 2014. It is a beautiful testimony to their love for God as well as for each other that they took this unique and special moment to ask Him for His blessing as they start their lives together. Haters are welcome to hate, but I am proud that my family is part of a school who students demonstrates their faith and values so beautifully.


oh my god thats so sweet! imagine someone to do that to you on ur wedding day!


Am not the type to cry over things like this,i can't control myself right now. This is what marriage should look like, this is loving love.

Honestly, I'm with @TeeCee. I don't have a problem with praying as my family pray but are not of Christian religion. I simply thought the lovely couple were sharing a few words as the last few moments of being two "single" people. Also, take note how the bride said "Faith WAS a huge part..." She needs to be careful of what she's saying!
