Life Authentic – A dance for Dad

I was trying to finish my last wedding album of 2015 today when I came back upon these moments at Kristin and Sean’s wedding last October at the Rainbow Ranch Lodge.  These images stopped me in my tracks and once again grabbed my heart. There is a powerful ‘story’ in these images as you will see. A story beyond words, a story that you can read in the faces, the tears and the soulful dancing.

The Story about life authentic – A dance for Dad

Shortly after her first dance with Sean, Kristen took the microphone and told the story of how her father left this life quickly and without warning.  She spoke eloquently of his virtues and how he loved the west and how he embodied such a giving and loving heart.  Then she poignantly expressed her grief that she never had the opportunity to say goodbye and that the next dance was a dance to celebrate his life, and to honor her Daddy. She invited everyone to join in and express their love and joy of life. Then she stepped into the circle of her family and began the celebratory dance for her Dad.  Everyone joined in!

I think it was the most moving and authentic thing I have ever experienced at a wedding.  Enough said.  Here’s to Kristin’s Dad!
