As she was about to take that special walk towards the aisle, Maggie’s future husband felt the urge to say a prayer with her. They respected the wedding tradition and refrained from looking at one another before the marriage ceremony. They faced away from each other with their eyes closed while grasping hands. In that moment, Caleb asked for God’s blessing over their marriage.
Looking at the soon-to-be husband and wife sharing such an emotional and personal moment, photographer Schmidt knew he needed to take a photo of it. He could barely keep his composure amid the weepy eyes and overwhelming love that poured out into the room.
“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,” Caleb Earwood said in an interview with TODAY. “I prayed to God for my beautiful and intelligent wife that he blessed me with, and the amazing family I was marrying into.”
The moment Maggie grabbed her future husband’s hand, she knew exactly what type of marriage she was in for. She felt fortunate.
“When I first grabbed his hand, he was shaking really bad, so I knew he was really nervous,” Maggie recalled. “It relieved me to know the person I was getting ready to marry felt the same way about God.”
The photo of Maggie and Caleb touched many hearts. It reminded us that we should never settle for anything less than what these two have.
We are very happy for them and wish them only the best life can bring.
