Last year in October, 23-year-old Shelby was going to
marry a man who she had been dating for 3 years.
I put my heart in this wedding. I wanted this day
was unforgettable, “- says Shelby.
But a week before the date fixed for the groom admitted that he did not love her and did not want to marry. Bang! – and dreams of family life were crashed…
“I was completely shocked and had no idea what to do next. I just started calling up all the guests and informing them of the wedding cancellation. “
Close people really wanted to help Shelby, but did not know how. Meanwhile, the day of “wedding” was already quite close.
But Shelby was sure: “Pity – it’s the last thing I needed.”
Then the wedding photographer suggested her to make a happy photo shoot and to make a good fun of her dress.
“First, for me it was crazy, but then I realized it was exactly what I needed right then. And the dress … It’s just a thing. “
“”Wedding Day” on November 1 became my happiest day surrounded by loved ones. And I decided that I wouldn’t have let my ex-boyfriend take it away from me. “
Shelby’s father even took for the photo shoot cigars and champagne.
“I was afraid only of my mother’s reaction, because it was she to buy me the wedding dress. But she supported me. “
Shelby decided that bridesmaids should be with her that day. And the girls were absolutely delighted with this photo shoot.
“It was a rite of purification on that day. As soon as the first drop of paint fell on my dress, I felt free. “
Despite the fact that Shelby broke up with her boyfriend just a week before the wedding, she did not lose heart and inspires others.
“Instead of falling and allow this situation to crush me, I stood up and met adversity with head held high.”
And there’s only one thing she wanted to say her ex: “Thank you for having saved me from much pain and frustration in the future. Thank you for helping me to understand how I am strong. Thanks to you, I am now confident that no one can take away my happiness. And thank you for giving me the opportunity in the future to meet my true love. Thank you! “
