ASHEVILLE, NC -- A U.S. Marine's emotional moment with his bride was caught on camera.

Caleb Earwood wanted to pray together before their wedding ceremony on Saturday.

But he didn't want to break tradition by seeing the bride before she walked down the aisle.

So the two decided to take a moment together with a doorway between them to block the view.
