Have you ever seen the movie "Father of the Bride"?
THIS is THAT...only better!! This was real life. Real tears. And a real pucker.
Meet Miss Courtney...whom I have the honor of photographing at her wedding in October. Courtney and her family are dear, dear friends of our family.
The Italian husband-to-be had to have a special detail too!
Hello delicious martini!
But the moment of all moments was when Courtney opened a gift from her dad. She opened the card and started to read...
The rest is just beautiful.
Oh lordy. I cry every stinkin time I read that!? The shoes were beautiful. The inside sole was embroidered with her name and wedding date.
The mom is in the background watching this beautiful story unfold. There is A LOT of love in this family. They give unconditionally to those around them. And those around them are forever touched by the love that they exude. They love with their whole hearts and witnessing it filled the entire room with love...and tears!
So thank you, Susie, Gary and Courtney. I went to the shower as a guest, but ended up documenting one of my most favorite moments ever!
