Everyone has a different reaction to wedding videos – and they all seem to be judging whether or not the bride and groom made the “right” decision in doing something quirky or staying entirely tradition.
Then again, when you put a wedding video online, you open yourself up to commentary.
Lucky for Jenna and Nathan, they didn’t have to wade through any mean comments about their lovely church wedding.
But we do have two guesses as to why people viewed the video over 2.4 million times: either because people love bridal entrance videos (either for inspiration or pure entertainment) or because they found a last-minute request by the groom very cute.
Much of the video is shot from the back of the church so you can see the scene unfold with the audience in view.
And plenty of viewers marveled at its size. In fact, the top comment right now is:
“Sometimes I watch these and wonder…how do they know so many people? O_O”
Some speculated that they might both have large families, but others made a guess we hadn’t quite thought of:
“It’s the community and the church. Believe me when I say this but going to church has so many benefits. The sense of community is on another level. The back up, the help and some even help you out in financial crisis. My church congregation has around a thousand members and whenever there’s a marriage or some event, the support is massive…”
Luckily, the groom doesn’t look too worried about the catering bill as he stands with his best man at the altar.
They give each other some smiles and nods on confirmation – after all, the groom is wearing a mic so that everyone can hear the vows, so it’s best to keep quiet. Well, unless you have an urgent request.
Everyone looks happy to be there as the bridesmaids (of which there are plenty) walk in one-by-one to the hymn ” “How Deep the Father’s Love for Us.”
It’s all going off without a hitch (other than some screaming babies, but that’s to be expected when you invite babies).
The groom has saved his biggest smile for the first time he sees his future wife at the back of the church.
It’s always sweet – and emotional – to see a partner light up at that moment.
But seeing Jenna also reminds Nathan that he has a request.
“Powder me, poweder me,” he says nervously to the best man.
We’re not sure if it was audible to the entire church, but chances are even if they heard the urgent whisper they couldn’t have guessed that’s what he was asking for. (But he does manage to say it in the moment of silence between songs.)
Luckily, his trusty pal knows just what he means and has the answer in his pocket – that’s what friends are for!
It turns out he just needed some baby powder on his sweaty palms.
Perhaps he didn’t want to take his partner’s hands and have her think “wow, he’s nervous!” But who wouldn’t be in a moment like that?
In any case, the crisis is averted and all eyes go to the back of the church.
As an instrumental version of Christian singer Michael W. Smith’s “The Giving” begins to play, the beautiful bride walks down the aisle of smiling faces.
And thank goodness someone could identify these entrance songs because some YouTube brides were about to burst from curiosity in the comments!
Aside from the guy unaware he’s in the shot checking his camera, all eyes are on the bride.
And just look at that beautiful smile!
She looks lovely, confident, and not at all in need of a powder as she comes to meet her groom.
No doubt their photographers (of which there seem to be plenty!) got many marvelous shots of these two happy people beaming at one another throughout the stunning bridal entrance.
They greet each other at the altar with sweet a sweet “hi” and a giggle – it’s hard to know what else to say when you get up there and are the center of attention!
Their last comments before the pastor speaks are inaudible, but we assume it’s not another powder request and that’s all been taken care of.
And we’re sure she appreciated being led to the alter by nice, dry hands.
