'My Emotion Just Took Control Of Me': Groom Breaks Down When He Sees Bride Walking Down The Aisle
To say a wedding is an emotional day in a couple's life is an understatement. One of the most intense moments is seeing the look on the groom's face when he notices his bride walking down the aisle. Usually, a groom has no idea what his bride looks like in her wedding dress, so there's the surprise of seeing the overall look and, of course, his reaction to knowing he is going to be married to this lady.
Now, the intensity of these emotions varies from person to person. But for one particular groom, you can tell that being married to this woman is a realization that leaves him in wonder and appreciation.
Quintin Reed and his bride Ashleigh were together for three years, and they decided to make their relationship official on October 7, 2017.
Quintin revealed that as he waited for his bride to walk down the aisle, his uncle, who was the officiant, asked him not to look up until the very last minute. This was exactly what the groom did. Then, finally, he looked up and saw his bride. He told Huffington Post:
And when I did, my heart became overwhelmed with joy, and my entire body just became numb as I witnessed the most beautiful woman ever in front of me.
The guests saw Quintin break down in tears as he took one look at the bride. Ashleigh was surprised and touched by his reaction, so much, so that she also shed a few tears of her own. We can tell that this is a couple totally and completely in love with one another.
Most grooms show at least a certain level of emotion when they watch their bride come down the aisle. In August, Micah Baker went viral after he broke down in uncontrollable tears when he spotted his bride in a white dress.

Well, one thing is for sure: These ladies are super lucky to be loved in such an intense way. Check out Quintin and Ashleigh's special moment in the video below.
