The moment a bride walks down the aisle is usually the most breathtaking part of any wedding ceremony, and brides these days are getting very creative in the way they make their entrance. 

One bride took her wedding entrance to the next level, telling an entire story in just a few seconds. 

The clip, which has been shared on social media, as well as Reddit's Make Me Smile page, starts with the silhouette of a pregnant woman, then moves on to the silhouette of the woman with a baby in her arms. The next image is as the child is a bit older, followed by the mom helping her get ready for school.

The final silhouettes that appear are the mother and her now grown daughter who is preparing to get married. 

The curtain lifts, and the pair appear from behind as the mother then walks her daughter down the aisle. 

It all sounds quite magical, and truth be told, when I first stumbled upon the clip on my Instagram explore page, I was in awe.

"That's a lovely way to honour your mom. I would guess maybe she raised her by herself?" one Reddit user, who seemed to love the idea, commented.

But not everyone shared that sentiment. "I really hate this. Like, a lot," another user wrote. 

"It makes it feel like the entire point of her life was to ...get married," someone else chimed in.

Well, to each their own, right?
