Family Traditions | Emmalee + Ben

Groom Gives Bridal Bouquet

It was just a year ago to the day, we were capturing Emmalee and Ben’s engagement party. And now a year later, it is their wedding day. Their wedding day steeped in their heritage and family traditions designed and orchestrated by The Wedding Belle. They were both so excited to marry one another. Emmalee and Ben put so much thought into the details of their wedding day. While their love for one another shown through, it was their thoughtfulness and compassion for others that captured our hearts.

Emmalee’s Dad could hardly wait to see his sweet daughter in her wedding gown. He had purchased her an heirloom to wear on her wedding day, a pearl bracelet. He was so excited to give it to her. As a child Emmalee’s Dad always sang the song Edelweiss to her. Well Edelweiss is also a very delicate flower. Emmalee asked The Fleuriste to make her Father a special boutonniere from Edelweiss. As she gave him the boutonniere, she shared the memory of him singing to her as a child. As she spoke the words, he said maybe we could dance to that this evening. And yes, Wade Tower sang it beautifully as they waltzed for their Father Daughter Dance to Eldelweiss.

Father of the Bride and Bride exchange gifts on daughter's wedding day

Mark was quick to share how Ben distributed his gifts to all ten of his Groomsmen and shared something special about each one of them in the Groom’s room. But the single yellow rose in every floral arrangement caught our eye and had us asking why the single yellow rose. It was in honor of Ben’s late Father, who always included a rose in every bouquet of flowers he had given to Ben’s Mother. He must have been smiling from heaven at Ben’s thoughtfulness to carry on his tradition on his wedding day with the single yellow rose in his memory.
