This moment was so special that it deserves its own post on the blog. The wedding day is usually centered around the bride and groom, and yes, while they are the focus of the special day as they become a married couple, the day also brings SO many emotions to the friends and family in attendance. I’ve spoken to this a lot in the past, but I really love getting to capture the heartfelt moments that unfold naturally. Moments that seem to stop time during the whirlwind of all the beautiful things that happen throughout the wedding day. While Shelby & John chose not to see each other before she walked down the aisle, she really wanted to share a first look moment with her father. As we descended the stairs talking about the first look, Shelby spoke about how as the only daughter, the wedding day held many emotions for her father. I could feel a lump in my throat building thinking about all the meaning behind a father giving his daughter away to her new husband as he walks her up the aisle. I’m not going to lie, I was also a ball of tears at how special this moment was for them. A moment that stopped time on the wedding day that was just for father and daughter, and that makes my heart happy.
