The room is silent as she makes her way up the aisle. His back is turned, but he knows she’s coming. Her dress gets fluffed out, the veil lays perfectly, the lighting is magical, but we all know that he won’t see any of that. He’s going to see her face. Her beauty. Love reflecting […]

He was led into the bridal suite of Chapel On The Creeks with his eyes closed. His daughter waited patiently inside.
