Michael Bates and Brandon Keilen decided to wait until the start of the ceremony to see each other in their wedding attire. As guests began arriving at the church, they snapped a picture of the two of them praying and holding hands on either side of a door.
Michael was determined to catch a glimpse of her groom, but the photographers made her promise not to peek. Watch the scene unfold in the video below, and see Gil's face light up as he watches his oldest daughter pose for her bridal photo shoot.
