Wedding photos are supposed to capture those special candid moments, but a bride got much more than she expected on her special day.
As Ontario, Canada resident Jamie Riddell got ready on her wedding day last May, she and her bridesmaids took little breaks to nurse their children, all under 9 months old. At one point, they all sat on the bed, nursing at the same time.
Realizing the moment that was happening, they asked photographer Lindsay Palmer to snap a picture.
"We realized how special it was that we were sharing in such an amazing journey together as mothers and wanted to capture the moment," Riddell told A Plus.
Palmer was able to get the bridesmaids and bride side by side in a stunning image, both in black and white and color ...
Riddell told A Plus that breastfeeding has come with lots of challenges for them, but she's glad they had this moment to see through those obstacles together.
"Nursing our babies together is just one more milestone that we have been able to share in our years of friendship," she said.
The moment wasn't lost on Palmer, either, who told A Plus that she herself has a newborn at home, making this motherhood moment that she captured all the more special.
"The whole bridal party was so accommodating to my schedule and needs," she said.
Of course, Riddell was in her element.
