All eyes are normally on the bride as she walks down the aisle. Me? I take a quick glance at the bride, and then immediately turn back to take a peek at the groom. I want to watch him as he sees his bride coming down the aisle. It’s always my one of my favorite parts of any wedding ceremony (and also why I fight to get a seat on the end of the aisle ;). There’s so much emotion in those moments right before the bride and groom join together to prepare to say their vows.
Today I’m sharing nine of my favorite groom reactions from over the years. Although admittedly, I could pull an image for nearly every wedding we’ve featured because the anticipation and emotion are always present. Pass me a (monogrammed) hanky…

Whew, so many sweet moments. I’m dying to know. Do you sneak a peek at the groom as he see’s his bride for the first time at the ceremony too? Maybe you might look over during your next wedding.
Love this, the reactions are just full of emotion. Beautiful.
This brings me back to my own wedding day. I held it together until the music started playing and then everything suddenly got very real!
So much emotion! Love these groom reactions. Pure gold! Thanks for sharing.
Awesome post! I love seeing grooms reactions to their bride. Even the brides get a little peek at the groom before the walk down the aisle, but the grooms usually don’t see the brides. So their reactions are priceless. Everyone in the room gets to experience seeing the bride through the grooms eyes, if you watch him closely. Thanks for this post!
