He's the first man that held your hand.
To kiss your cheek.
To hold you close and whisper "I love you."
You probably stood on his feet while you danced your first dance in the living room.
On your wedding day, he is the one that cries when he sees you dressed in white.
It's his arm you take to walk down the aisle to the man of your dreams.
He's the one dance partner that you know has dreamed of twirling you on the dance floor since the day you met.
For this bride, the absence of her father on her wedding day was devastating. It was the thoughtfulness of her brother and the love and support of her family that allowed her still have this special moment that is usually only shared between a father and his daughter.
Although I never met this bride, the moment that is shared in this video brought me to tears. I wish her the best of love and luck and hope she knows that her father was with her in spirit at this joyous occasion.
