Jessica Padgett had dreamed of the day she would say "I do" to her fiance Kendall Murphy, but her dreams were shattered on November 10, 2017, when an alleged drunk driver struck the volunteer firefighter while he was helping a crash victim.

Jessica Padgett took her wedding photos alone after her fiancé was killed by an alleged drunk driver a year ago. Her aim was to help Jessica heal while honouring Kendall at the same time.

Photographer Mandi Knepp, of Loving Life Photography, captured the day by shooting photos in typical bridal style: getting ready, standing with her bridal party, nieces and nephews, and parents.

Knepp shared photos from the wedding photo shoot last October 5, one of which showed Padgett kneeling before the grave of her fiancé's while wearing her wedding gown. She posed with several of Murphy's belongings, including his uniform, his helmet and his boots.

The photos have since been shared over 26,000 times on Facebook. "It means you had someone special in your life, someone worth missing".

'She made broken look attractive and strong look invincible. "She walked with the Universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings".
