Bride surprises grandma by wearing her wedding dress in touching moment”

The bride secretly got her widowed grandma's dress from 1962, and is wearing it for her big day.

Wedding photographer Kortney Peterson describes the first look between the bride and her grandma as one of the most "unique and beautiful" moments she's ever gotten to capture.

This past weekend, family and friends gathered together to watch childhood sweethearts Jordyn and Dakota Skye Cleverly exchange vows.

Jordyn Cleverly was determined to keep her wedding dress a surprise for someone very special in her life - and not just her fiance Dakota.

"I have never done a first look between a bride and grandma", photographer Kortney Peterson told ABC News.

"I chose to wear my grandmother's wedding dress over two years ago", Jordyn told Yahoo Canada.

"I wanted to pay tribute to the dress that had been sitting vacant for 55 years", she told ABC News. The moment brought tears to her eyes.

"As the bride walked outside to see her grandma, it began to rain", Peterson said. "She kept repeating, "Your grandfather would have loved to see this".

The photographer behind Kortney J Photo wrote about the special moment in a Facebook post on September 22.

"She was completely and utterly speechless". You guessed it. I bawled. "Her realising that Jordyn cared so much for it really hit her emotions hard, it was so lovely", Kortney adds.

It was an emotional moment.
