A groom got a surprise of a lifetime when his bride pranked him on their wedding day during the first look.
The two were renewing their vows after five years of marriage and Val was a bit on edge from planning the affair. So Heidi thought a joke would help to put him at ease.
She borrowed a friend’s old wedding gown for her brother to wear. He even put on women’s deodorant, so he would smell more like his sister.
In a blog post on Love What Matters, photographer Kevin Chole says, "Heidi thought it would be hilarious to send her brother down in a wedding dress in her place for the first look... Needless to say…. It worked and the grooms reaction was utterly priceless."
The groom’s reaction when he turned around to see someone other than Heidi dressed in white was jaw-dropping and made for some great photos of brother-in-law love.
When Val did finally see Heidi, he was definitely relieved and looked more in love than ever.
