Tina, what a beautiful story. I love the symbolism behind the veil, that it symbolizes the unending love of your mother and grandmother. You looked like an absolute PRINCESS! It is so touching the way your daughter became a part of your story. I enjoyed hearing her voice and her perspective on the veil. It gave me the chills! Thank you for sharing this, I loved it.
What a beautiful story. I connected immediately with it, as my mom is also my best friend. It is a story of love and compassion and one that makes even a stranger have a tear in her eye! Your love shines through when you tell the story. To have that loved symbolically and physically passed down to your daughter is the perfect ending to your story. Thanks so much for sharing.
Your story is so touching, and your veil is gorgeous! My favorite part is when you shared about your daughter wanting to wear this veil. Her prayer was the icing on the cake...so beautiful! What a treasured item with a heart-warming story. Thank you for sharing.
Tina, your story of the veil and your wedding was lovely. I connected with your story on several levels since I’m in the process of planning my own wedding. I understand how important it is to include your mother and grandmother in the special process of shopping for a wedding gown. I’m looking forward to wedding dress shopping at the end of the month with my mother and my Godmother. Sadly, my Grammom passed away a couple of years ago, but on my wedding day I’ll have her with me since I’ll be wearing her pearls. These traditions are sacred and it’s so generous and kind of you to allow your mother to live out her wedding dreams through your special day.
What a beautiful story! The images of the veil are breathtaking as well as your wedding photographs. The music, dialogue, and the relationship between a mother and daughter, fit together so perfectly to tell this sweet story. I teared up as you expressed how your daughter wanted to wear the veil for her Holy Communion. This is a wonderful tradition (both the veil and story) to continue to pass down from generation to generation. Thank you for sharing! P.S. You are more than welcome to share my digital story with your future class. I am flattered and hope that it can be an inspiration to your students on achieving their own personal goals!
Thank you for sharing this beautiful story. I thought you did a nice job with choosing your pictures to compliment your story. It truly was a beautiful veil! You hightlight the importance of family through your story. I also thought you did a nice job choosing the music to accompany the message behind your digital story. Great work!
That was such a moving story. I did not expect the twist at the end when your daughter chose to wear your veil for her Holy Communion. I loved how you included her saying her prayer. It was so moving and brought a tear to my eye. Your photographs and music complement your story very well.
Tina, you did a truly beautiful job paying tribute to the line of strong women that you come from. A strong theme of family love is evident in your narration and you do a wonderful job making an object mean so much more and embody the qualities of your grandmother and mother. That is no easy feat. Wonderful job!
This story is absolutely beautiful. It is a special tribute to the strong connection you share with the amazing women in your family. Your daughter will obviously grow to be another strong woman in your family. Your details brought your story to life, and your word choice made the story interesting.
