Weddings are quite an emotional occasion for the bride, the groom and the witnesses of the ceremony. We usually hear about the bride’s tears of joy and rarely picture the groom trying to control his emotions, but this is exactly what happened to these lucky guys when they laid eyes on their beautiful brides for the first time.

This list of photographs, collected by Matt Bellassai, shows the happy grooms’ most beautiful and heart-melting reactions.
