Christina and Anthony had such an emotional wedding. The ceremony was at Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph (formerly St. Joseph) in Niagara Falls, NY. We went for photos at Niagara Falls State Park. The reception was at Antonio's Banquet and Conference Center in Niagara Falls.
This moment was right after the father of the bride walked and gave the bride away to her groom. Christina was very close with her father. There were tears all the way down the aisle. Neal was at the front of the aisle getting the wedding party processing in. This was the image he got right after dad handed off his daughter.
This is always so emotional because dad is not the only important man in the bride's life anymore. The family is trusting the spouse to take care and always be there for their daughter or son.
This image takes on even more emotion as the bride's father passed away not too long after the wedding. It was so unfortunate. He was a wonderful father and husband to his family.
Our job is not only to take photos on the wedding day. We are capturing memories that will last a lifetime. Christina will always have this image and all of the others forever. We do not take our job lightly either. We want to make sure we cover everything. We were so happy we were able to get some beautiful moments with Christina and her father.
