Janine, a bride to be, was planning her dream wedding to the love of her life, Johnny. With only 52 days left and the wedding 100% planned, he died unexpectedly. With so much grief, she decided to do something a bit out of the ordinary. Take a look for yourself.
Janine decided to go to the Riviera Maya and have a unique photo shoot in her wedding dress to honor her fiance. A dress she never actually got to wear.
Janine wanted to be photographed jumping into the sea at Mexico’s Riviera Maya because, to her, water is a purifying element.
And the photos are absolutely stunning.
Her wedding dress was no longer a symbol for love and marriage. She had no problem jumping into the water with it on.
“This day was very emotional,” explained Janine in an interview with Matt Adcock of Del Sol Photography, who took the pictures with her. “At the end of the day I felt so accomplished and I felt more alive than I have ever felt since May 1st. I really felt that Johnny was smiling down at me and finally giving me closure that I can live my life in a positive way, but never forgetting why I was here. I want to move on and explore the world. I want to meet people who I can share that with. After the shoot I felt like all this was possible.”
What an incredible tribute to her fiance.
Janine proved that even though she experienced something that no woman should experience, she can still move on. She can still heal and cope with her tragic loss. Let us know in the comments below.
