We've all seen those hilarious recreations of embarrassing or cheesy childhood photos that have made us burst out laughing. But the wedding photos recreated by one husband in Ohio will make you cry. That's because Ben Nunery lost his wife Ali to a rare form of lung cancer in 2011, right after celebrating their only daughter's first birthday.

Recently, Ben decided it was time for him and his now 3-year-old daughter Olivia to move out of the home they had shared with Ali and start a new chapter in their lives. But not before recreating some of the wedding photos the couple had taken at their brand new home--this time with Olivia taking Ali's place.

The result is both beautiful and heartbreaking and, according to Ben, it was sad and conforting at the same time. As he wrote on his blog:

I did it for me. I did it for us. I did it so I would have something to show for the love and beauty that occupied that house for a short time in our lives. I wanted to be able to show Olivia the place where her mother and I started our lives together and dreamed of raising children.
