— -- Bride Erin Goldberg surprised her husband-to-be with an unconventional outfit for the couple's first-look wedding photos in Scottsdale, Arizona on Nov. 11.

Erin Goldberg, 25, wore sweatpants and her favorite old cat t-shirt from Walmart instead of her gorgeous wedding gown to prank groom Ean Goldberg, 31.

“It was so funny to watch him because I could tell when he was turned around, he was anxious and excited to see me in my dress,” the bride told ABC News of the wedding-day prank.

But Ean Goldberg, although not expecting the joke, knew he was marrying a prankster.

“I was smiling and facing the other way and was antsy, just so excited to turn around and see her,” the groom recalled. “And when I turned around, the first thing I said that went through my mind was, basically, ‘I should’ve expected that.’”

Their photographer, Molly McElenney, said she’s never had a bride ask for a fake first look photo shoot before.

“I liked this one though because it was more personal, and so hilarious,” McElenney wrote to ABC News on Facebook. “It helped ease some of the stress of the day and showcased how hysterical these two lovebirds are. It was unique and such a fun part of the day.”
