Published 3 months ago

Weddings are usually emotional events for many, but this one even made people on the Internet shed a tear or two. Jessica Manns, a wedding photographer, recently shared pictures of the touching wedding ceremony that she shot and it almost instantly went viral for all the good reasons. “This is probably the most emotional thing I’ve witnessed at a wedding,” she wrote in the post. As Jessica herself explained, the family of the groom wanted to pay tribute to his sister that tragically died in a car accident a few years ago, so they decided to release stunning orange butterflies into the air in her honor. The fragile and beautiful creatures were supposed to symbolize resurrection and represent life as some believe that our dead loved ones can sometimes visit us as butterflies.

Jessica Manns, a wedding photographer based in Pennsylvania, shot a magnificent wedding ceremony and took it to Facebook to share it with the world. Max Van Gorder married his wife Lydia at Fox Hill Farm, Honesdale, Pennsylvania. The groom together with his family decided to release butterflies during their wedding vows to honor his sister Vanessa who had tragically died in a car accident during the Christmas holidays a few years ago.

The Van Groder family have long used butterflies to remember Vanessa who would have been 29 this year. “This is probably the most emotional thing I’ve witnessed at a wedding. The groom’s sister tragically passed away in a car accident a few years prior during the Christmas holiday. To honor her, the groom’s parents released butterflies during the ceremony in her honor. There’s a common belief that our loved ones visit us sometimes as butterflies. As they released the butterflies, they wouldn’t fly off,” Jessica Manns, the photographer, shared on her Facebook page.

“They clung all over them and even stayed on their bodies the entire ceremony and well afterwards into cocktail hour. This same butterfly on his finger stayed there the entire ceremony and then flew onto the bride’s bouquet after the recessional. Lydia, the bride, even walked down the aisle with two on her dress. Then a few hours later during the speeches, another butterfly somehow got inside the barn and landed on Lydia’s neck and remained there for all the speeches. Unreal,” the photographer added.

The bride herself commented on the now-viral post on Facebook by saying: “Thank you again Jessica Manns for capturing such a special and loving moment during our wedding. Vanessa was with us there and throughout the night. I relive my wedding day everytime I look at your photos. You captured every moment so beautifully! You are the best!”
