Involving kids in a big, exciting day can often be overwhelming and challenging, but when it goes right... boy is it worth it. The older they get, the easier it becomes, and the more it reminds you that these are the times we truly get to revel in what a gift being a parent means. Having a child with you on a day like your wedding is something you will never forget.

One mom on TikTok knows exactly what we're talking about. Set to the Taylor Swift song "Sweet Nothing," she shared the footage of her first look with her son when he saw her in her wedding dress for the first time, and nothing could have prepared us for the emotions we were going to feel watching this video! 

Many traditional first looks take place between the people getting married so that the bride can make her big reveal while sharing a more private moment with her future spouse, this was different — and somehow, even more special. She snuck up behind her son, and when he turned around, we could just feel the joy he felt seeing her all dressed up. He immediately started crying!

This was also the first time that Mom got to see her son looking all handsome in his suit, and just from this video, we can tell that they have such a strong bond.

Even better was the fact that the video included clips of him later walking his mom down the aisle... and then, cheering as the bride and groom kissed for the first time as a married couple at the end of the ceremony.

This mama and son are lucky to have these moments captured in such a beautiful way. Here's hoping this new family is already living happily ever after!
