A sweet, touching, sad but happy story, this one. A man had been suffering from cancer for the past year, but got his final wish. He was able to walk his daughter on her wedding day.
The wedding date was actually moved forward a couple months when things started to take a turn. The photos that were shared from the wedding really show what the family had to go through, not to mention the obvious pain the man was in. He wanted to see his daughter’s wedding day though, so he pushed through the pain. He had to lay in a stretcher, but he was able to hold his daughter’s hand down the aisle. Here’s a video from the wedding:
It’s just amazing that they were able to plan that wedding, have all the guests, and even that the videographer was available too. If you’ve ever planned just one wedding, you know it’s hard enough to accommodate everything. Especially considering the special circumstances to have the father there with all the medical necessities. It was an amazing wedding, and a very heartwarming and touching story.
Charlotte, the bride, said “This was really an emotional moment. My father’s one wish was to see his daughter married and we made it come true for him… It made the day very bitter-sweet. It hurt me knowing that he would be leaving us but I was happy that he was there. I am happy he could see me get married.” He passed away three days later. Here’s more on the story.
