This was one of the most emotional and sweetest weddings we have done in a long time. There are so many weddings that are just about the party (and that’s ok!), but this one was different in so many ways. From the bride’s brother performing the ceremony, to the groom surprising the bride by playing guitar and singing the father/daughter dance. Then singing to the bride… there was not a dry eye in the room! It was the sweetest thing I had ever seen!
Although it was a happy day for the couple, it was a sad day as well. The grooms mother passed away unexpectedly just a few weeks before the wedding leaving the bride and groom and his family devastated. 🙁 I knew their wedding day was going to be full of emotions, but thankfully they had a lot of friends and family there supporting and loving on them.
Here’s a few of my favorite photos from the day. Enjoy! (isn’t Cady gorgeous!! So photogenic!)

Cady and Ben decided not to see each other before the ceremony; however, they did exchange gifts and prayed together without seeing each other face to face.
To honor Ben’s mom during the ceremony, Cady placed a pink garden rose in her seat when she walked down the aisle. You can see the rose laying beside the groom in the photo below taken after the ceremony.
