|During the ceremony, their paster read heartfelt notes that Rachel and Brian had written to each of their parents. I had never seen (or heard) this done before at a wedding ceremony, and I thought it was a beautiful way to bring the event full circle. Not to mention, there wasn’t a dry eye in the audience.
During the reception, Rachel and her dad danced to “Cinderella” by Steven Curtis Chapman – well, they didn’t just dance to it, but acted out the story line (give it a listen, you’ll see what I mean!). The song ended with dad waving, walking off the dance floor, and Rachel hugging her new husband (which led to some serious tears behind my camera, I’m not ashamed to say it!).
