Blended Family… He Turns to His Bride’s Daughter to Give His Vows & Everyone is in Tears

There’s so much to say about Whitney and Brian. They live in North Carolina and were planning a wedding in the mountains of McCall, Idaho, but PenWeddings got the chance to take a short trip to meet them before their big day when they were in Texas for a weekend. We instantly fell in love not just with the two of them, but also their daughter Brielle (affectionately known as Breezy). Brian came into Whitney and Breezy’s lives a couple of years ago, and his love for both of them is almost tangible. There were many amazing moments over their wedding weekend, but nothing touched us more than their sweet notes and vows to one another… except perhaps for Brian’s vows to Brielle. If that doesn’t bring you to tears, I don’t know what will.

It looks like Whitney, Brian, and Brielle are off to an amazing start. It is hard to watch them give their vows to each other, and Brielle, without getting just a little bit teary eyed.

Tissue, please!

What a great way to include Brielle and honor the daughter of his bride. Another great way to include children in the wedding ceremony is to add the Blending of the Sands and let the children choose their own color of sand. Read: Blending the Sands Ceremony – Bride, Groom and Children.
