He married the woman of his dreams, and they bought a new house, but things didn't go as planned. Ben Nunery, 34, lost his wife, Ali, in 2011, two years after they got married and one year after the birth of their precious little Olivia. Two years later, with the house being sold, Ben wanted to create beautiful reminders of what he had in the house and make that the lasting memory to give to Olivia when she got older.

A day after newlyweds Ben and Ali obtained the keys to their new house in 2009, they took some very beautiful pictures. These pictures showed their love for each other as they posed together around various parts of the house and often gazed longingly into each other's eyes. Now, with Ali gone and the house empty again for the impending move, Ben decided to recreate those pictures, this time with his beautiful daughter Olivia taking the place of her mother.

To capture the original feel, Ben brought in his sister Melanie who took the original photographs four years ago. They recreated the shots. Melanie felt her sister-in-law's presence as she took the photographs.

What emerged were amazing photographs that show sadness but also hope. Ali lives on through her gorgeous daughter Olivia, and the photo will be a testament to the love that created Ali. Olivia, 3, is too young to understand the significance of what they did, but she will have these pictures to remember her mother in the future when she gets older.

UPDATE: This week was Ben and Ali’s 5th wedding anniversary. On his Facebook page Ben gave an insight to how much he loves Ali, by posting this message: “5 years ago today I married the woman of my dreams and changed my life forever in ways I could have never imagined. I would still do it all over again, Ali. Happy Anniversary.”

God Bless you Ben. Thank you for sharing your love story with the world. We know Olivia has an angel watching over her, and the best Daddy.
