Seeing the love of your life for the first time on your wedding day is definitely a moment that will never be forgotten. It doesn’t matter if it’s just you two in a scenic location or when you’re walking down the aisle in front of your friends and family. That moment will be one that you share together. And we love seeing the reactions! So below we’ve rounded up our 10 favorite groom reaction moments!

Brought to Tears

To start off our list of course we had to go with one that pulls at your heart strings! Max couldn’t contain his tears for his wife-to-be during their first look!

Love Notes

If you want to keep the “look” part for the ceremony, but still have a moment between the two of you before the ceremony, why not exchange love notes like this couple? Or a gift too!

Touch or Look –– It Doesn’t Matter

Another first “touch” moment that is just beyond cute! I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I could have resisted not peeking around that corner!

A Tear to the Eye

As Kelli approached her groom, Kendall, he couldn’t help but to cover his mouth. Even after Kelli assumed her place beside him, he kept tears in his eyes.

Look of Love

We adore how this groom’s best man gave him a supportive hand on his shoulder as he holds back his tears when seeing his bride.

Last, But Not Least

If your heart isn’t thumping yet, it will with this image. This groom LOST it when he saw his bride-to-be, and it’s one of our favorite first look images!
