Photographs Matter – When Your Dad Isn’t Walking You Down The Aisle

One of my favorite parts to wedding days is seeing the love and pride a father has for his daughter.

When he first sees her in her wedding gown. When he’s trying to hold it together as he walks her down the aisle. When he’s dancing with her at the reception to a song about the love a father feels for his little girl.

I’m normally wiping away tears while the camera is held to my face because those are the photographs that I wish I had.

That remind me how important family is. How much we are loved.

This is Meredith’s picture that she loves the most. Out of all of them in her lifetime. It was made just this year on her wedding day.

“I have so many great pics, it was hard to choose my favorite. This one I love because it shows a light from above, my beloved father who passed when I was 15, walking me down the aisle to join my wonderful Ryan in marriage.”

It seems even when our loved ones have passed, we find signs that they are near. I’m glad Meredith has this photo to cherish from one of her wedding guests.

Come back next week to see how children halfway around the world living in poverty can remind us some things don’t change between cultures, countries, or without a common language.
