This bride had been hiding a major secret from her groom for three whole days. But she’d decided that the couple’s wedding day would be the perfect opportunity to break the news – and now the big day was finally here. When her husband read the message that she’d written him, however, he was left completely dumbstruck.
In 2017 Taylor and Kevin were busy preparing for their spring wedding in Cassville, Wisconsin. And like most soon-to-be-married couples, they were probably keen to give their loved ones a day to remember.
However, in the weeks leading up to the wedding, bride-to-be Taylor simply didn’t feel right. Whether it was pre-wedding jitters or something more worrying, she didn’t know. With each day that passed, though, she began to feel worse and worse.
But with lots of things still to do before tying the knot, Taylor was likely unable to take any time to recuperate. Then, during a meeting with her wedding photographer, she had a thought: could the sickness be down to an unexpected pregnancy?
Writing on Newsflare some time after her wedding, Taylor explained, “My photographer asked if there were any surprises or gifts that she should know about. I joked that Kevin thought I might be pregnant because I wasn’t feeling well, so I would keep her informed.”
While Taylor joked that she was expecting, deep down she believed that her chances of actually being pregnant were slim. After all, she and Kevin had agreed to start trying for a family at least six months after their wedding. So, at this point, a baby was simply not on the agenda.
When Taylor’s sickness intensified, however, she decided that she couldn’t ignore it any longer. She subsequently took a pregnancy test, still confident that she wasn’t expecting a child. So we can only imagine her shock when the test came back positive.
All that was left for Taylor to do at that point was tell Kevin that he was going to be a daddy. But rather than revealing the news there and then, she decided to wait until after he got his first look at her in her wedding dress. And needless to say, the moment was magical.
Of course, wedding reveals are emotional moments at the best of times. For many newlyweds, the first time that the grooms see their brides is the highlight of their special days. It is also usually an immensely special time for each pair to take stock of the commitment that they are about to make.
In this case, Taylor arranged the heartwarming reveal with the help of the team at Cherish Alish Photography. As a result, they caught the whole thing on camera, and it is now a moment that the family can enjoy for years to come.
In the footage, Taylor and Kevin are dressed in their wedding attire. The groom looks dapper in a beige suit, while his bride wows in a fairytale white frock. The couple look as proud as can be as they pose back-to-back. However, little does Kevin know that the day is about to get even more special.
With her groom facing the other way, Taylor holds out a sign and shows its message to the camera. “You’re going to be a daddy,” the board reads. However, given that he has his back to his bride, Kevin is at first oblivious to the life-changing news.
After a couple of moments, though, the pair turn to face each other. It is then that Kevin finally sets eyes on Taylor’s sign and is unsurprisingly overcome with emotion. He then falls into his bride’s arms and holds her in a tender embrace.
Now that Kevin was in the loop, Taylor couldn’t wait to start sharing their happy news. “Once I surprised him, I asked who he wanted to tell first,” she revealed. “I knew the answer; he wanted to tell his mom, and I was all for surprising our parents.”
Consequently, the couple decided that there was no time like the present to tell their families about the pregnancy. And the ideal moment arose when the wedding party united for a group photograph. That’s when Kevin pulled out Taylor’s sign once more.
The video footage of this event reveals that the message again goes unnoticed by its intended audience for a couple of seconds. Indeed, with all eyes facing forward, the families are too busy posing for the camera to see the sign. So Kevin sneakily twists the board to his left, putting it in the eyeline of two of his loved ones.
From the looks on the pair’s faces, it’s clear to see that they are astounded. The lady closest to Kevin grabs him by the neck and pulls him in for a celebratory cuddle. Then, while still stuck in the embrace, the groom hoists the sign aloft for the rest of the group to read.
Eventually, the message catches the attention of one woman, whose mouth falls open in shock. She turns to Taylor to congratulate her as the news starts to sink in for the other members of the wedding party. “Are you serious?” one of them asks, unable to hide their surprise.
Before long, some of the throng are wiping tears from their cheeks. Others giggle in delight as they realize that their family is about to grow. Soon, it becomes evident that none of them will forget Taylor and Kevin’s wedding day in a hurry.
In fact, the happy couple got to stretch the excitement of their nuptials into the following months as the video went viral. But with their wedding out of the way, they most likely got to work on preparing their home for their new arrival. After all, this little twosome would soon become a family of three.
