While some may prefer more inventive, unique, and eclectic weddings, there is still something to be said for the classic church wedding with the bells, the organ, and echoing halls. In many cases, few cannot help be moved and uplifted by the sweet and sincere moments that are about to follow.

The typical wedding scene is laid out in a church in Ålesund, Norway. The bells are ringing, and the beautiful bride is being led down the aisle by her father to that oh so familiar tune. However, our blushing bride named Maria utterly and completely flips the script with what she does next. It’s a beautiful moment that definitely brought a few tears to some eyes, and will remembered by the guests for some time.
