Jacqueline and Brian.

In this beautiful and emotional display of love, gain and loss, this adorable family of 5, has three of the most beautiful little girls I have ever seen in my life!!! These little ones are a reflection of mom’s beauty and dad’s humorous personality. πŸ˜‰ This poor dad is outnumbered, even the DOG is a girl! And though it all, Brian is a phenomenal and loving father, creating memories, going on great adventures, always putting his family first, loving his children and their mother unconditionally.

Just as Jacqueline’s father did for her and her family. 

Tears are hitting the keyboard as I write this because you could feel the love, as well as the grief. The grief of loving an amazing person who was there in spirit, as her brothers walked her down the aisle and danced symbolically to the daddy-daughter dance as his pictures with her flashed behind them. I don’t believe there was a dry eye in the room. 

Looking at this pictures all I can hear is Bob Carlisile’s song figuratively explain it best. 

All the precious time
Like the wind, the years go by.
Precious butterfly.
Spread your wings and fly.

She’ll change her name today.
She’ll make a promise and I’ll give her away.
Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.
She asked me what I’m thinking and I said
“I’m not sure-I just feel like I’m losing my baby girl.”
She leaned over
Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair

“Walk me down the aisle, Daddy-it’s just about time.”
“Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy? Daddy, don’t cry”
Oh, with all that I’ve done wrong I must have done something right.
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses
I couldn’t ask God for more, man this is what love is.
I know I gotta let her go, but I’ll always remember
Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses…
