This is the touching moment a bride who was getting married by proxy cried tears of joy when her groom made a surprise appearance at the altar.
Giovana Vital Senise da Silva, 26, from Brazil was expecting to tie knot remotely over a video call because her partner lives in the US.
Brazilian law recognises proxy marriages when one partner is not present at the wedding.
But she couldn’t contain her joy when Danilo Alcoléa de Azevedo, 28, who is based in Florida, walked in and embraced his wife-to-be.
The sweet reunion last month was captured on TikTok by Giovana’s brother-in-law Ícaro Furlanetto (@icarofurlanetto) and has now racked up some 1.8 million views.
‘My sister-in-law was thinking that she would marry my brother by proxy, because he was in the United States,’ a caption on the video read.

‘At the time of the ceremony, we called via Facetime but he “didn’t answer” and showed up by surprise! It was beautiful!’
Viewers took to the comment to express their joy, with one saying they were left in tears by the gesture.
‘What a beautiful thing!!’ one remarked. ‘I think there is no more beautiful affection than crying with happiness to be with someone.’
‘Beautiful,’ a second gushed.
A third added: ‘I’m crying like hell.’
A proxy marriage is one where one of, or both of the people are not physically present.
It comes as a couple have revealed how they pulled off a surprise wedding in the comfort of their own home for a fraction of the cost – having lured their friends to join them for the ceremony with an invite to a fake housewarming party.
Wedding photographers Elizabeth Hasier and Holden Blanco have seen their fair share of nuptials in their line of work, so they knew what they did – and didn’t – want when planning their own celebration.

Elizabeth in particular always knew she wanted her own wedding to be a unique and intimate affair – so she decided to hold a surprise wedding in their living room, disguised as a housewarming.
The 27-year-old, from Philadelphia, and her now-husband, Holden, originally floated the idea of tying the knot in Colombia, where his extended family lives.
But after purchasing their first home in December and planning a housewarming they had a better idea – to combine the two celebrations.
‘Marrying the love of my life in our living room was never how I thought I would get married – but now I can’t picture it any other way,’ Elizabeth gushed in a TikTok video, in which she shared some of her wedding details.
The bride explained she wanted to avoid not meeting their guests’ expectations about her wedding, admitting she found the thought ‘stressful.’
‘You’re just putting all of your taste on display for a hundred people and hoping they like it,’ she told Insider.
Instead, the newlyweds, who dated for eight years before getting married, revealed to ‘truly pull one over on people,’ they decided to opt for a sneaky surprise ceremony and celebration in July.
Elizabeth shared the moment they revealed to their 45 guests that they were actually having a surprise wedding rather than the housewarming in a now-viral TikTok.
‘We didn’t want to wait to get married,’ the photographer can be heard saying in the clip, which has been viewed more than 854,000 times.
‘So we’re actually going to get married right now.’
