“We knew our father may not be alive for our future wedding, so we decided to capture the poignant moment before it was lost forever,” Becca told the Star-Telegram.

In July, the Texas sisters donned donated wedding gowns and posed for wedding photos with their 80-year-old dad.”It was very emotional, especially after we put on our dresses,” said Sarah.

Photographer and family friend Lindsey Rabon said it was an honor to take the photos for the family.

“I was so happy Becca and Sarah trusted me to capture this time, however fleeting, with their father,” Lindsey wrote on Facebook.
