Every dad simultaneously dreams of and dreads the moment he takes his daughter’s hand to dance with her at her wedding.
Zach, the brother of the bride featured in the below clip, says this was his sister’s very last dance with her father. You see, the video was filmed one month before their father passed away from lung cancer. The video, shot by Caroline Maxcy Photography, was played at his sister’s wedding reception — four months later.
I guarantee you’ll cry like a baby watching this father soak in this special day put together by his loving family, reminiscent of Emily Campbell, who threw a special wedding ceremony for her dad who had stage four cancer.
Dad radiates with joy as he dances and sings with his loved ones. You can see what a free-spirited, wonderful person he was. As one YouTube commenter says, even so near to his passing, he showed such courage and took a very sad situation and made it a happy memory for his daughter to cherish forever.
Set to the joyful and fitting song “My Girl,” this video is full of so many incredible moments as Dad takes turns dancing with each of his family members. Like when he dances with his daughter. Or when he dances with his wife. And even when he hilariously slow dances with his new son-in-law. So bittersweet, yet so beautiful.
