Photographer captures teary moment when dad asks stepdad to give daughter away together
Get the tissues out folks, this one will make you cry!
One father realized just how hard it would be to feel left out of his daughter’s special day, and made a beautiful gesture to her stepfather on the day of her wedding. He stopped the procession to grab his hand so they could walk her down the aisle together.
Photographer Delia Blackburn told USA Today that she was warned by biological father Todd Bachman,
“I’m going to do something special. Be ready.” He then stopped the wedding procession to grab the hand of daughter Brittany Peck’s stepdad, Todd Cendrosky, so they could walk Peck down the aisle together. You can see by the faces in the photos that everyone was touched and emotional. The images on Blackburn’s Facebook page went viral within hours.
“For me to thank him for all the years of helping raise OUR daughter wouldn’t be enough. There is no better way to thank somebody than to assist me walking her down the aisle,” Bachman told USA Today.
What a beautiful gift for a father to give his daughter on her wedding day.
