a beautiful bride

Katie Kirkpatrick, 21, held off cancer to
celebrate the happiest day of her life.
Katie had chased away the cancer once, only
to have it return- to clog her lungs and
grab hold of her heart.
Breathing was difficult now, she had to use
oxygen. The pain in her back was so
intense it broke through the morphine that
was supposed to act as a shield. Her
organs were shutting down but it would
not stop her from marrying
Nick Godwin, 23, who was in love with
Katie since 11th grade.
Five days later, Katie died.

This photo essay is by Romain Blanquart is as heartbreaking as it is beautiful.
