A Father’s Last Gift And A Wedding Planner’s Journey to Healing and Hope (An Angel Story)

Angel Story

Hello beautiful souls! When Ruthie, a wedding planner, found out her dad would not survive his battle with cancer, she was devastated. Ruthie wanted nothing more than her dad to walk her down the aisle. That’s when Ruthie’s dad came up with the best divine idea… Have the wedding now without the groom, then Photoshop him in later! So, that’s exactly what they did! Ruthie found a wedding dress, got all dressed up with her parents, and captured that moment where her dad walked her down the aisle. Today, Ruthie has a great relationship with her father on the Other Side, and she communicates regularly with him. Hear all the messages Ruthie gets from her dad and her spirit team in this episode! If you’d like to develop your gifts of mediumship, angel messages and energy healing in my Angel Reiki School, or if you’d like to share your angel story, please visit theangelmedium.com for more information.

Hello beautiful souls. Welcome back to the Angels and Awakening podcast. I’m your host and author Julie Jancius. And friends, today we have on a very special guest. Her story was recently featured in People magazine. Her name’s Ruthie. Welcome to the show.

Ruthie: Hi. Thank ah you for having me.

Julie Jancius: Yay. And ruth, you run a wedding business and blog. Tell everybody what you do before we jump into your angel story.

Ruthie: Of course. So I am a wedding day content creator and basically what that means is I kind of become your best friend behind the scenes on your wedding day and capture everything on my phone. So you get content within 24 hours of your wedding delivered to your email address and you have thousands of videos to remember your wedding day with.

Julie Jancius: Amazing. Amazing. So when you capture it, are you capturing it on your cell phone or like videoing or how do you do it?

Ruthie: Everything is video on my cell phone mostly. It’s mostly I do take a few photos but it’s going to be about 80 20 mostly being video.

Julie Jancius: That’s amazing. And you’re in Orlando, so we’ll have to put the information. What’s your business called?

Ruthie: It’s called Julia’s daughters, which will come interesting once we speak a little bit more about my story.

Julie Jancius: Well, that’s interesting. Okay. So I read your story, and spirit just, like, moved my heart to reach out to you and to try and, like, track you down, because you have this touching story where your dad is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and you can’t imagine your wedding day yourself one day without him there walking you down the aisle. So you go out and tell the story.

Ruthie: So I go out, and what some people might think is crazy, I went ahead and I staged a photo shoot. I have been in the wedding industry for over 15 years, and I was working at a bridal salon at the time, so I decided that we were just gonna, you know, cancer was gonna take a lot away from me, but it wasn’t gonna take this moment for me and my dad. So I just changed a photo shoot, and I borrowed a wedding dress, and I contacted a friend that was a photographer, and we found a, location, and we went and we did what’s called a first look. So then me and my dad were able to have this moment where he saw me as a bride and be able to have that experience, and then for me to also be able to have those photos, you know, one day when I do get married, even though he won’t be there physically present, I’ll still be able to have that memory with him.

Julie Jancius: I love this. And you know what? You’re like, I don’t know if this is crazy. I don’t think it’s crazy at all, actually. I wish more people would do this, which is why spirit wanted to have you on the show, because in the article you talked to about, did you take some pictures where you could almost then crop in your groom?

Ruthie: We shorted, and that was actually his idea. It was towards the end of the photo shoot, and my mom was also there just because she was tagging along. And the photographer was like, let’s do a few photos with your mom, too, since she’s here. And then my dad was like, put


Ruthie: your hand out so that eventually you can photogroom the photoshop the groom in. So we did a few shots like that as well, which were really funny. And it’ll be fun to one day be able to add the groom into the photos.

Julie Jancius: Oh, my goodness. Oh, my goodness. So I want to get to some messages, but first, what’s the Julia’s daughters what’s the connection?

Ruthie: So. So my dad’s name was Julio, so the business is basically named after him. He always used to joke that I was going to be the one to retire him out of the three children. I did not get to retire him, but I still get to honor him in some way. So the day the business is named, after him.

Julie Jancius: Amazing. Okay, so first, I want you to know a couple of things. Now, I gotta tell you this, too, so. Right, like, I loved people magazine. Like, I’m a child of the 1980s and 1990s, and so it’s the one magazine that I always go to for, like, feel good stories. And sometimes when I’m reading something, spirit will come through. It’s the same as, like, if you know somebody you love had somebody else pass away, but you didn’t really know that person, but you start getting messages for them. It’s kind of like that, which, when it first started happening, I was like, oh, guys, I don’t know about this. So the very first time that it happened, when, like, kind of COVID was right at the beginning, there was, I think, co sheriff down in Florida. He passed away, but his partner was still alive. And as soon as I read this article, there was just so many messages coming through for this gentleman. And I told his partner on the other side, listen, if you want me to bring through messages to your person, then you need to have him reach out to me. And this was like a Sunday. And, like, I kid you not, it wasn’t even 4 hours later that I checked my email, and there was a contact form that came through the website, and I remembered his name. Like, it, Oh, my God. You know, just talking to his person on the other side and telling him he had to bring it through 4 hours later, the same day. So then I hop on the phone with him and I’m like, okay, let’s schedule a time, you know, like, I’ll do a free session for you. And I’ve never had spirit do this before, but he was like, I’m not going away until you do this session. And, like, I had six months of sessions booked out, which I do don’t do anymore because of my vocal disorder. But he was like, if you don’t do this session, like, right away, then I’m just staying with you. So I was like, okay, like, let’s get this done right here, right now. So we brought all of the messages through, and it was absolutely wonderful. But I got the exact same vibe when I read your story from your dad. And he shows me a couple of different things. The first thing is you are absolutely having that family, because do you see yourself having a daughter one day?

Ruthie: Absolutely. Actually, we’re not going to start crying yet. That was one of the. So my brother, I’m, I’m the middle of an older brother and a younger sister, and my brother has two boys, but he always used to say that he wanted a daughter from me. He’s like, it’s not the same to have a daughter from your brother because I feel like when boys get married, they get more attached to the girl’s family. So he’s like, I’m waiting for a daughter from you. So absolutely.

Julie Jancius: Ready for a little getaway that completely resets your energy. We’re hosting a live, in person spiritual retreat called a whole new you. It’s the weekend of October 4 in Oakbrook, Illinois. This spiritual retreat is all about your own personal healing and growth, reconnecting with yourself, learning to connect with your Angels. And I’m going to talk about all new Angels that I’ve never talked about anywhere before. And you’re going to leave with more personal peace, purpose, clarity, and confidence than ever before. Learn more and see the itinerary@theangelmedium.com. retreat that’s theangelmedium.com backslash retreat. Links are in the show notes and friend, I cannot wait to meet you and hug you in person. Okay? So I want you to know, and when I say this, I mean, it’s a happy, healthy baby that’s coming through. But, like, when I tune in and say that, I see your dad on the other side. He’s right there with this little baby girl, and she is beautiful, and she is happy and


Julie Jancius: healthy, and they’re just waiting for the right way to bring her through. Now, here’s what your dad wants you to know. You know how sometimes we want something 111%, like, you could not want it more, but at the same time, we have fears. Like, we worry, what if I never meet my person? What if that family never comes through? He goes, you have to know. Know, like, you know, like, you know, like, you know, like, you know that I am not going to allow anything to pass you by. So he said, I need you to know concretely, within your heart that your person is here, that he is going to see you and love you and validate you. You know how when we were raised, I was raised in eighties and nineties again, but there were really more of those gender stereotypes, okay, that’s not my marriage at all. Like, my husband is the complete divine feminine energy, and I have more of the divine masculine. And when I keep tuning into your partnership, there’s some of that same dynamic, but I recognize that. And I knew that he was like the yin to my yang. He was just my missing piece. And he’s soft and he’s gentle and he’s kind, and he puts me on a pedestal, and he loves me so much. And your dad goes, that’s exactly what I’m bringing through to you. And so he goes, don’t look for that divine masculine look for that person that puts you on the pedestal. Look for that person. And, God, do you get in your way sometimes? And you’re like, but what if I’m not attracted to him? He’s like, you can’t marry someone you’re not attracted to. He’s like, you will be so attracted to him, it’s not even funny. Okay, so he is your person. And the other way that I want to stop you from getting in your head is that you can’t make it wrong. You can’t miss a time, miss running into this person. You can’t make it wrong. You can’t mess it up in any way, shape, or form. Like, when this person comes in, it’s going to be right. It’s going to stick, and all you have to do is be your beautiful self.

Ruthie: I, am, like, the reason why I’m hysterical crying right now. It’s because, like, that is everything that you just said is exactly what normally goes through my head. It is like, you know, we live in this world of, like, dating apps and, like, it’s so hard to meet people or whatever. And those are, like, the common misconceptions of, like, oh, I met somebody and they’re great, but, like, I’m not attracted to them. Like, do I just overcome that because something else? Or, like, am I being too pushy or am I being too forward? And is that gonna, you know, drive somebody away? And I try to keep telling my, tell myself that things, like the right person, I can do basically anything, and they’re not going to go away. So it feels great to kind of hear that from the other side, too.

Julie Jancius: Yeah. And it’s just the vision. He needs you to hold this vision of you are with your person. You have those pictures. I want you to see that concretely. Not only do you, like, have the picture of you with your beautiful wedding dress, your mom and your dad next to you, but you have photoshopped him in the. He is there. And I also want you to feel the energy of being pregnant. Not that it’s going to come cart before the horse, which regardless, no worries, but just because it’s happening and a lot of times we have to visualize the ending first. And so just visualize it. Your partner, you know, you got that ring on your finger, you’ve got the photo and your belly is huge and he’s got his ear to your belly and you’re talking to her and you might have boy too. So if he comes through first, no worries. But my God, the little girl that you’re going to have is you to a t. She is your personality. Cause she’s going to come through to do big, big things here. Your dad is working with you. He’s a bridge, what I call a bridge from the other side. So even though he is on the other side, he still has work that he wants to do here. And it’s not only guiding you and your family members on your journeys, but he was also very entrepreneurial himself. He had this great spirit and this great drive within him. And I can’t explain the why behind it, why some of us have this and some of us don’t in the same way, but there are certain things that they just want to keep doing from the other side. And he goes, you might not have retired me, but he goes, I’m going to retire you early. Okay. And he said, you’re going to have more than enough to help the


Julie Jancius: family too because he said, I know you like to do that a lot and he appreciates that. And mom, we’re still together when he passed. Right? Because he’s coming in through with messages for mom. Is mom’s mom still here?

Ruthie: Yeah.

Julie Jancius: Okay. Know that he’s with her on the other side. Did she pass before him? Yes, because mom was very, very close to her.

Ruthie: Mom?

Julie Jancius: Like almost like sisters close. Does mom still live in the same house?

Ruthie: No, she does not.

Julie Jancius: As when dad passed?

Ruthie: No, she, when she bought one after.

Julie Jancius: He passed away, did she take the bushes with the flowers?

Ruthie: I think there, I think there might be one bush that she might have taken with her. Yes.

Julie Jancius: Okay. Ask her if it blooms. Because I see like her taking the bush from the old house. Like he’s so glad that she has that. Because I think that when she looks at it, she either sees him or mom from the other side. And I also feel like, listen, they come through with different signs. It’s not only just one sign, but I feel like she’s really been seeing the birds a lot of and that tell her to listen to the podcast. If she wants to come on and share her angel stories, I’ll have you both back on. But he says that she’s really open to communicating with him and that he’s always there with her.

Ruthie: Yeah, that makes a lot of sense because she doesn’t communicate with us necessarily as much. Like, she likes to keep, like, a lot of her things to herself. And we always wonder, like, is she talking to somebody? And I do believe that that is the person that she talks to, whenever she has something that she wants to say. So it’s good to know that she has that, you know, for herself.

Julie Jancius: Yeah, 100%. And he’s bringing in windfalls to her. Like, I just keep. I don’t say that to everybody, but I just keep seeing him bring her, like, this abundance of just blessing after blessing after blessing after blessing.

Ruthie: That’s great. I’m excited because she just, she was just sick last week and we had a little bit of a scare there, but she’s on the up and up.

Julie Jancius: So, yeah, she doesn’t want to go anywhere. She’s here for a long time. Oh, Ruth, thank you so much for being here. I so loved getting to meet you and having you share your story.

Ruthie: Thank you. Absolutely. This has been amazing. Thank you so much.

Julie Jancius: Yay. And tell everybody one more time where they could find your business and you on Insta, of course.

Ruthie: So you can find me on Instagram as Julia’s daughters. And that’s online on every social media platform. And that’s going to be jilious daughters.

Julie Jancius: Amazing. We’ll put that in the show links below. And if anybody has any other angel stories, reach out to us. We would love to have you on the show. Our committee gets together a couple times a year, so if you don’t hear back right away, don’t worry, we will reach out to you. And, check your email because we’d love to have you on. Awesome.
