Her wonderful wedding dress, once a symbol of joy and life together, quickly became a sign of sadness and emptiness.

Her wonderful wedding dress, once a symbol of joy and life together, quickly became a sign of sadness and emptiness.

At this point, Janine decided she could take her wedding pictures anyway. In this way, the dress, instead of causing her huge pain, would honor the memory of her fiancé.

The photoshoot took place underwater and symbolizes all the negative states she felt, but also what, thus, “cleanses” them. Janine thinks he would have wanted that:

“I did it because I wanted to get rid of the loss of my fiancé… This dress was for him. I did it because John wanted me to do something like that. He wanted me to have the best of life.

I really felt that Johnny was smiling at me from up there and that he was finally giving me the release I needed to move on.

After the photo session, I felt that my life is possible again “, said Janine.

“If I could say something to suffering people, I would tell them this: listen to your heart!

YOU are the most important person, and only YOU can help yourself “, she added. Let’s take her at her word!
