Heartbreaking images show a woman knelt at her fiance’s grave wearing her wedding dress three weeks after he was shot dead by a man he was selling an Xbox console to.
This was supposed to be the happiest weekend of 22-year-old Sara Baluch’s life, the weekend she married 24-year-old Mohammad Sharifi.
On Sunday, she slipped into her ivory chiffon wedding dress wedding dress she’d picked out to wear at the altar and headed to the cemetery where the love of her life was laid to rest outside Nashville, Tennessee.
The cloudless day at Harpeth Hills Memory Gardens was captured in intimate photographs by Chattanooga’s Times Free Press.
Baluch sobbed through her tulle veil as she knelt in the grass damp from thunderstorms the day before surrounded by loved ones who took turns reciting prayers and reading from the Quran.
‘We were supposed to be together,’ Baluch said as tears streamed down her face.
‘I’m so sorry, Mohammad. I’m so sorry. So sorry.’
As they prepared to leave Baluch’s mother Sona replaced her daughter’s white wedding veil with a black one.
‘We were so happy,’ the 22-year-old said. ‘I want to be with him. Why do I have to wait?’
