Life is such a beautiful and fragile thing. All of the minute moments seem so trivial and are so easily forgotten, but even the little things are precious. Every moment in life should be cherished, every memory captured.
This past year I had the honor of photographing the most beautiful and heartfelt wedding I have ever witnessed. Brianna’s and Brandon’s wedding was scheduled for the end of September. I was contacted in early August by Brianna asking if I would be available that weekend for an emergency ceremony. Sadly, her father was losing his battle with cancer. He wanted so badly to be able to walk his baby girl down the aisle. Thankfully, I was able to arrange to be there to document these precious moments. I wasn’t sure what to expect on the day of the emergency wedding, but Brianna’s vendors came together to help her have a lovely day. She found a gorgeous dress at a consignment store so that she could still wear her original dress on her official wedding date. Despite his weakness and with some help, Brianna’s dad was able to walk her down the aisle and even share in a father daughter dance at the reception. Brandon’s and Brianna’s first wedding day was an incredibly intimate event between family and close friends. It was so full of love and emotion and there were many tears of sorrow and of joy. It was a beautiful day that will be forever cherished.
Brandon and Brianna opted not to have a second ceremony in September. Instead they chose to get dressed up and celebrate their wedding with their friends and family. They spent the morning hanging out and getting ready at their house. This was followed by some photos at Pioneer’s Park and at the Lincoln Memorial building. Afterwards, they took a limo ride with their wedding party and then had a reception to celebrate at the Cornhusker Marriott. Though Brianna’s father’s absence was felt, they were able to have a fun day celebrating their love and union.
