Real Wedding Friday..20 years in the making

Lisa and Steve's Valentine wedding was 20 years in the making. On Saturday Feb. 14, 2009 Lisa and Steve renewed their vows in the beautiful white wedding she'd always dreamed of. The day was magical for this couple and their family! The couple's three daughters participated as brides maids and everyone had a wonderful time.

This wedding was truly special for many reasons, one of which, is it granted one of Lisa's lifetime wishes. When she and Steve first got married many years ago, they were young and didn't have the big wedding. After Lisa was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer a few months back, she knew that a big 20 year vow renewal wedding is something she wanted to do. Her friends/co-workers got together and let Brides Against Breast Cancer, Making Memories Foundation know Lisa's story. The charity came in and granted this wedding wish with the help of many wonderful vendors! It is such a wonderful story. I hope you enjoy the fantastic photos by Eliza Truitt and Barbie Hull.

Below, are emotion filled pictures from shopping for the beautiful Bridal gown a few weeks before the wedding. Lisa, her 3 daughters and friends had a wonderful day celebrating the upcoming wedding!
