According to Bre, who started a Tumblr account after the photo went viral, the future husband and wife were were praying for their marriage.

“My husband prayed that God would bless our marriage, that through thick or thin together we would never lose hope in one another,” she wrote. “That instead of focusing on each others imperfections we would always rely on Christ’s perfection.”

The sweet photo was taken before the couple’s wedding last August, and seems to have gained traction online in the midst of wedding season.

“There we sat around the corner hand in hand, and together we bowed our heads. People were rushing about; the wedding coordinator directing people here and there, the photographers snapping photos and the bridal party enjoying each others company,” Bre continued. “Yet in that moment, in the quietness of our hearts and minds, my husband and I were alone in the presence of our Savior, Jesus Christ.”
