Since my dad walked me down the aisle and also officiated our wedding, we had Jerry--a neighbor and close friend for a long time--to open the wedding with prayer and then wait with Lawrance at the front.
He also asked the question, "who gives this woman to this man?"
Before my dad answered, Jerry moved out of the way, and my dad took his place in front.
He then spoke very personal words as he "gave me away." When he was done, I had to ask for a tissue--I'm so glad that Sarah had one. . . . and that wasn't the last of the tears either. A few more would come later.
I LOVE this photo taken while my dad was "giving me away." The smiles on both his and Lawrance's faces are awesome!!!
