THIS WEDDING HOLDS AN EXTRA SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART. THE MOTHER OF THE BRIDE PASSED AWAY JUST 8 WEEKS BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY. SHE WAS A VERY SPECIAL LADY AND I WAS GRATEFUL TO HAVE HER AS A PART OF THE PLANNING WHILE SHE WAS HERE. THE WEDDING WENT ON AS PLANNED BECAUSE THOSE WERE HER WISHES. BEFORE SHE PASSED, SHE PROMISED THE BRIDE THAT SHE WOULD COME BACK TO HER AS A BUTTERFLY. DURING THE COUPLE'S FIRST LOOK, A BUTTERFLY FLEW RIGHT THROUGH THEM. WE THEN DID A BUTTERFLY RELEASE AND ONE BUTTERFLY REFUSED TO LEAVE THE BRIDE'S HAND. The experience was one of the most touching moments I've ever had and one I will never forget.
