PHOTOS: Georgia sisters wed hours before mother passes away

Posted: Updated:
SNELLVILLE, Ga. (FOX 13) -

Newly-released pictures shared by a photographer show the beautiful wedding shared by three Georgia sisters back in October. Millions of people were touched by the triple wedding planned by the sisters so that their mother could attend before she passed away.

After a four year long battle with breast cancer, doctors gave Becky Swales months to live last year. Her daughters Jodie, Kaylee, and Sarah, who were already engaged, decided to hold their wedding together so that their mother could attend. The wedding was pushed up by a couple weeks after Becky began to grow more ill.

Hours after the wedding, Becky Swales passed away. But not before she witnessed her daughters' wedding.

That wedding was captured by Colors of Life Photography. Click the slideshow above to view the beautiful pictures.

Special thanks to www.colorsoflifephotography.com and the Swale sisters. Click here to read a letter from the photographers to the Swales.

Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.
