In what may be the cutest wedding reveal of all time, a North Carolina bride pulled off a hilarious prank. With the help of photographer Paul Seiler, Beth Gardner surprised her groom by doing a first look that wasn’t exactly what Thomas Gardner expected.
As Thomas says in a Facebook comment:
I was totally floored when I turned around and saw her in this. Floored I tell you!!!!!!!!
Because instead of his bride in her wedding dress, Gardner turned around to find his soon-to-be wife in a full-sized T-Rex costume. And his reaction is absolutely priceless as he doubles over in laughter.
The video has over 24,000 shares on Facebook and is quickly becoming a viral hit. Beth Gardner is thrilled with the response. On Facebook she wrote:
It just warms my heart to see that so many people got a giggle out of this too!
The adorable first look was the perfect way to diffuse what can be an incredibly stressful day! So let that be a lesson to all you brides out there. Dress up in a giant dinosaur costume and you’re sure to get a smile.
