Something also magical happened about one hour before the wedding ceremony. It rained briefly, around noon, and then the sun came shining brighter than ever!
Special Moments from the Bride
Bride (Shontae) says,
"The morning of our wedding day the most special and magical moment for me wasn't putting on my dress or looking at myself all dressed up; it was hours before that took place. My God father Dia Daniels, pulled up that morning to see me on my big day; only days after being out of the hospital from a complex high risk surgery of the lungs . I was so happy and sad all at the same time. Because it hurt to see him in pain, but the smile on his face made it worth it."
