    While planning the wedding, Rhianna's father was deployed to Iraq. On the wedding day, she planned a "first look" with her dad. "I needed to have that moment with just the two of us so that he'd know how important he is to me," said Rhianna. "I needed him to know that his influence, guidance, and complete love for me is what allowed me to arrive at this perfect day." See more from this moment

    "I would have given up on planning a wedding if it wasn't for my dad. I'm so thankful for that, because I would have missed out on a day I didn't even realize I needed so much—that my whole family needed so much," said Rhianna. "In the pictures of our first look, I think that's written all over both of our faces." See more from this moment
