Frantz Photography recently shared on Facebook how honoured she was to be part of her friends special day, and create memories with her daughter Azalee who passed away before her mum’s wedding day.

“Finally get to share one of the most beautiful and difficult pictures I’ve ever been asked to do. This is my wonderful friend Amanda during her bridals. She wanted so badly for her precious Azalee to be there with us. Azalee’s battle with childhood cancer ended 2 years ago…she went to heaven before her mommy met the most wonderful man named Chip. Heartbroken that her girl wouldn’t be here to experience this new journey with her, Amanda asked me to please incorporate Azalee into the pics somehow. This is what I came up with and I couldn’t be more pleased. It was such an honor to be able to do this for her and I’m so thankful God has given me a talent that I can use to make broken hearts just a tad less broken.

Another post read:

“Today at the ceremony, Amanda and Chip released butterflies in remembrance of their beautiful little Azalee. It was a moment in time that stood perfectly still for all in attendance, not a dry eye to be seen. As the butterflies flew up and away, one little beauty decided she wanted to stay a while. She landed right on Amanda (closest to her heart) and stayed while a heart-wrenching cry was shared between the bride and groom (and the entire congregation)…then,it flew up and perched itself on a nearby tree. It stayed there and was still sitting so peacefully even as we left. We all know it was Azalee, just a little whisper from her and God saying “congratulations” and letting everyone know she was nearby to help her mommy cross over into her new path of life…where there is nothing but sunshine ahead!!
