The First Wedding to Make Me Cry

Benjamin & Heather: June 12th, 2010

Benjamin and Heather. Wow what can I say about them? They are the type of couple that you can just tell will be happy together forever. They are both wonderful people with great personalities. I just adore both of them. Heather and I became friends through this whole adventure and I know that they both have the mind set and the willingness to make their marriage not only work- but be a great marriage.

This wedding was a beautiful and happy occasion- as all weddings should be! But I did tear up when I saw heather's bouquet. Amidst the gorgeous flowers were two photographs. One was of her late father and the other was her late sister. Her Aunt had put it together for her as a surprise. I was so touched by this beautiful express of love and family that I really did tear up. Now, I know that everyone does not share religion or beliefs. But this seemed even more significant to me because they were getting married in a temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Members of the LDS faith believe that you can be sealed to your family forever and be with them in the next life. What a wonderful blessing for Heather and Benjamin!

Now that I am tearing up again I will conclude this post. Please enjoy the photographs and as always, feel free to leave a comment.
