Dad halts daughter’s wedding so her stepdad could help give her away

2015-09-30 10:51

Washington - A US wedding is making headlines after a father paused his daughter’s wedding to invite her stepfather to join him in walking her down the aisle. 

Photographer Delia Blackburn, who captured the images, described the moment:

"He stopped the procession and he walked up to his daughter's stepfather. Todd [the father] reached out his hand and grabbed [her] stepfather and pulled him down the aisle to walk their daughter down the aisle together. NOT A DRY EYE at the ceremony".

In an interview with US news station WKYC-TV, the stepdad said he was totally taken aback by Bachman's kind gesture.

"[He] came and grabbed my hand and said: 'You worked as hard as I have. You'll help us walk our daughter down the aisle. I got weak in the knees and lost it. Nothing better in my life, the most impactful moment in my life."
