Story of Tania and Jacob is filled with the bittersweet joy of a wedding combined with the agony of a child’s pending loss.
Baby Paige had been dreaming about being a flower girl for a while, and the baby girl was eagerly looking forward to the day when her parents would tie the knot.
Unfortunately, her parents learned that they had very little time to make Paige’s dream come true.
Like the case with many happy couples, Tania and Jacob had not been in a big hurry to formally get married.
However, when Paige was diagnosed with a 𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐮𝐦𝐨𝐫 and was given very little time to live, the parents immediately knew that they needed to act quickly to make their little daughter’s dream come true.
The baby was too ill to leave the hospital, so the couple as well as Paige’s aunt worked hard to transform the hospital room into a beautiful wedding ceremony sit.
Paige’s aunt told: ‘Something that they had wanted to do for so long was get married, and they couldn’t bear the thought of Paige not being there,’
This was a very intimate event, but the family did everything they could to make Paige’s dream of being a flower girl a reality.
Some of the pictures captured by the skilled photographer show little Paige with a white bow in her hair resting in her hospital bed while her little sister and mother looked down on her. The mom and two girls are beautifully dressed in their gowns.
Paige was placed in a wheelchair for 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐲. A pink and purple knit blanket covered her legs while her 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬 fluffed out around her waist. A basket of flower petals was in her lap. Her parents stood on either side of her, 𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐬𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐝. They both appeared to be agonized by intense grief.
