A girl's wedding should be her happiest day.

This girl's wedding followed her mother's death, as it was her dying wish to have her daughter happily married off.

Despite the sorrowful undertones, the wedding was a fairytale affair and the bride looked resplendant.

    I can see the sadness etched on her lovely face... and you caught the emotion very well...It had to be an extreme hardship not to have her mother there to help her celebrate but I am sure she was there in spirit...Voting!
