Alexis Marie Helzer was already emotional after saying ‘I do’ on her wedding day, but things took an adorable turn for the best while taking wedding photos with her family after the ceremony. Standing next to her newly-minted husband, who was holding their 2-year-old son, a beautiful moment was captured.
“Mom, you’re beautiful,” the couple’s son, Aasyn, said as he pointed to his mama – who became emotional immediately and tried to pretend like she didn’t hear it to avoid the tears. Worried that his mother didn’t hear him, Aasyn repeated his compliment – and even made his father tear up, as well.
“Alright, that might make me cry,” the father said – later telling his new wife she better hold back those tears. The video, which was shared by multiple social media accounts and wasted no time in going viral, concluded with the husband handing their son over to mama, who was still fighting back the waterworks.

Alexis Marie Helzer posted the video on both her Instagram and TikTok accounts – the latter of which has garnered nearly 22.5 million views, 2.9 million likes, and 13,000 comments since being posted on May 8. “So thankful this was captured on my wedding day. Sweet baby,” she wrote in the viral TikTok caption.
The professional wedding photographers who helped capture the beautiful moment posted the video on their Instagram account, as well. “So happy we caught this sweet moment during family photo time this is just another example of why we highly recommend mic’ing you up for your wedding day!” they wrote.
The wedding photographers make an excellent point – it’s common practice to take photos at a wedding and, while videos are often taken as well, some of the best moments aren’t fully captured due to a lack of audio. By mic’ing up on your wedding day, you can ensure all those beautiful moments are captured.
Social Media Was Buzzing Over This Wedding Day Moment
As the wedding day moment went viral on social media, thousands of users took to the comments to express how incredibly adorable the moment was. “Sounds like Dad is setting a great example,” wrote one Instagram user, while another one commented, “thats how you know it’s true, when a child says it.”
Many people couldn’t help but agree with their 2-year-old son, while others pointed out that the couple must be doing something right as parents. Commenters were also quick to gush over the way the son looks at his mama – one of pure love. “He loves her so much you can see it in his eyes,” one user wrote.
