"It was someone that doesn't have any backbone. Obviously, they are out to get me because they took away everything I worked for," Vargo said.

The photo shows 22-year-old matron of honor, Jennelle, with 16-year-old Bree re-creating the traditional wedding toast.

Both mother and daughter say the beer, while in front of her, was not Bree's.

"I personally don't drink myself. I don't condone drinking, especially for underage children," Bree's mother Susan said.

Still, it's not enough to convince school administrators. Despite her 10-year cheerleading career, Bree is off the team.

She'll have to watch the last two games, one the biggest of the season, from the stands.

"She cannot wear her cheerleading uniform. She cannot sit on the bench next to the cheerleading coach. She cannot walk the senior football player down the field for senior night ," Susan said.

"I just sat there and cried. I didn't know what to say. I didn't know what to do," Bree said.

The school is not talking. Bree is disappointed and hurt.

"I don't even know if I want to cheer anymore. I don't know if I want anything to do with it," Bree said.

Wedding photos are one of a kind. They're memories that last forever. This one, Bree would rather just forget.
