Bride wears her late mom’s wedding dress in a beautiful photo shoot

Bride-to-be Shelby Sander put on her late mom’s wedding dress, and it fit her perfectly. Sander’s mom, Angie, died two years ago after a battle with cancer. “I still feel the pain every single day that my mom isn’t here. She doesn’t get to experience my wedding,” she told People.

To celebrate her upcoming nuptials and honor her mom, Sander decided to pose in the vintage white gown her mom wore to marry her dad. She teamed up with Taylor Brooke Photography for the stunning photo shoot. Photographer Taylor Rubio told Yahoo Lifestyle, “It was definitely emotional watching Shelby in her mom’s dress because of how meaningful it was. It was emotional in a beautiful way. The dress fit her perfect, as if it was meant for her to wear for the shoot.”

Sander will walk down the aisle in September. She plans to cut a heart-shaped patch from her mom’s dress and have it sewn onto her own wedding gown for the big day.
