A 4-year-old girl recently donned a beautiful wedding dress and posed for a photographer. The resulting photos now have everyone talking--and the reason why will touch your heart.
Mom of three Amber Davis was diagnosed with a rare form of cervical cancer in February 2014 and battled through radiation, chemotherapy and ultimately brain surgery before sadly passing away in July 2015 at the age of 27. But while she was sick, she had an idea of something special she wanted to do her 4-year-old daughter Nora.

She reached out to close friend and photographer Heidi Spillane of My Three Arrows Photography to help take photos of Nora wearing her wedding dress in the same location where she had married her husband, Derek.
“It’s something she really wanted to do for her daughter to always feel connected to her," Spillane told TODAY.
Davis never lived to see this wish come true, but a few weeks ago, it did. Nora donned her mother's lace wedding gown, had her hair styled just like her mom's to pose for a series of photos while her father and other family members watched.
"She looked so innocent and wise at the same time," Davis' husband Derek wrote in an email to TODAY. "Nora has had to endure many things someone her age should not have to. Through it all she has shown her mother’s warrior spirit."
Here's Nora looking at a photo of her parents on their wedding day.
