When the Bride Shows Up for the First Look in a T. rex Costume, This is What Happens…

We all love seeing first look wedding photos. It’s that priceless moment when a couple sees each other for the first time before they walk down the aisle. Sometimes the bride and/or groom gets a glimpse at their future spouse wearing a tux or gorgeous wedding dress, and they are stunned at how handsome or beautiful the partner of their dreams looks. Or, if you’re Elizabeth Gardner  (formerly Hundley) from North Carolina, you use it as an opportunity to pull off the BEST FRIGGIN’ SURPRISE EVER by showing up in an inflatable T. rex costume. The costume was apparently inspired by Elizabeth’s middle name, Rex, which is also her mother’s maiden name and her middle name.

“It just warms my heart to see that so many people got a giggle out of this too!” said Elizabeth “Beth” Gardner on videographer Jon Clark Weddings’ Facebook page. As for husband Ted Gardner’s priceless reaction?

“I was totally floored when I turned around and saw her in this. Floored I tell you!!!!!!!!”

Thanks to Jon Clark Weddings for the video share!
