JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Jacksonville couple is going viral after Ring doorbell footage from the night of their wedding was shared across the internet. 

Brandon and Stephanie Jacobs got married at The Clay Theatre in Green Cove Springs a year ago. She wore a strapless lace gown, he wore a gray suit and later changed into red sneakers and St. Louis Cardinals hat for the reception. They danced the night away before being driven back to their Westside home.

That's when Brandon, 37, decided to get traditional. 

Despite multiple back surgeries, he was determined to carry his bride across the threshold. Stephanie, 31, was skeptical. 

"You good?" she asked, bracing herself before saying "oh boy, oh dear." 

The whole episode was captured by the couple's Ring doorbell camera.

"I actually remembered after the fact and realized it was captured on there and smiled," Brandon said. He shared it with the doorbell surveillance company and that was that for the time being. 

But now, a re-share from Ring's social media accounts earlier this week has resulted in a windfall of new views and fans. 

"It's really wild, honestly," Stephanie told the Times-Union Thursday morning. "We were just kind of minding our own business when everything started happening." 

The couple was at Brandon's mom's house when Fox News reached out to them.

Brandon told Fox it was important to him to carry Stephanie inside because his dad did it. "You see it in all the movies," he told the outlet. "It just made sense to do."

Earthquake, the popular comedian, shared the video on his social media platforms, too. 

"Some wedding traditions are still alive," he captioned the video. 

"It was crazy," Stephanie, who works in case management, said. Brandon owns a catering company called Snooks Eatery. They're both University of North Florida alumni.

The couple will celebrate their first wedding anniversary on Sunday and there's something else they're celebrating — last month, they announced they're pregnant with their first child. 

Stephanie said she looks forward to showing their child the doorbell camera footage. 

"It'll be a great experience to share with our child," she said.
