Man Loses Wife To Cancer, Then Touchingly Re-Creates His Wedding Photos With Their Young Daughter [Photos]

Tragedy struck 2 years ago when Ben Nunery lost his wife Ali after a battle with a rare form of lung cancer. Two years later, Ben and their daughter Olivia decided to move out of the house that he and Ali moved into the day before their wedding. Before Ben and his young daughter Olivia left the house for good, he decided to do something amazing.

The house was empty, just like it was the day the newlyweds moved in 4 1/2 years earlier. Ben picked up the phone and called the wedding photographer that had shot the original wedding photos, and recreated them with his Daughter. This. Is. Amazing. To see some more of these incredibly touching pictures, head over to buzzfeed.com

From the photographer Melanie Tracy Pace’s blog

“He asked me to take pictures of him and Olivia in their empty house just like we did on the day he married Ali, 4.5yrs ago. That’s right, the time has come for Olivia to have a yard to play in, a bigger house where her toys can have a dedicated place of their own and home in a good school district. On Friday Ben handed over the keys and drove away from the house that holds so many unforgettable memories. The place where you can literally feel my sister’s presence the second you step in the door. Heck, she poured herself into making that place their home and every inch of it was perfection, who am I kidding?”
