When Brittany and Jeremy Peck were getting married, they had everything planned perfectly. The rehearsal went very well and no hiccups were expected. But on the day of the wedding, the ceremony began to get out of control.
While the two lovebirds were about to exchange their vows and seal the deal, the father of the bride suddenly made a quick move. He stood up and glared at the bride’s stepfather. He had held a rivalry with the man for years. But now, on the day of his daughter’s wedding, he wanted to change that. He grabbed the other man’s hand and then began pulling him down the aisle…
There was a special reason the father of the bride, Todd Bachman targeted the bride’s stepfather. He wanted the man to help walk the beautiful young lady down the aisle. It was a tender moment that meant the world to the stepfather. He had tried to be a good role model to the young woman and had played a vital role in her upbringing. And now that his hard work was being honored, the stepfather broke down in tears. And he badly needed a tissue…
Although Todd was the bride’s biological father, he admitted humbly that the other man also played an important fatherly role in her life. And he believed that the stepfather deserved to hand the girl off to the groom as well. As you can imagine, this meant the world to the stepfather.
As one big family, the bride, Brittany, stood as her father and stepfather each gave her a kiss to hand her over to the groom. Neither the groom nor the bride had expected this amazing turn of event. And neither had the stepfather. Everyone except for Todd had been prepared for this epic wedding moment. But weddings are a place for love and inclusivity, so it was the perfect time to bridge the gap between the fathers and connect over the young lady they had helped make who she is.
The wedding photographer, Delia Blackburn eagerly shot the historic moment. Never had she seen something like this unfold at one of the dozens of weddings she had worked at.
Because the images were wonderful, she shared them on her business Facebook page. Along with the images, the photographer wrote:
“Grab tissues… because you will need it as you look through these pictures. Todd Bachman, father of the bride, brought his daughter to the beginning of the aisle…he stopped the procession while people were confused at his actions and he walked up to his daughter’s stepfather.
“Todd reached out his hand and grabbed Brittany’s stepfather and pulled him down the aisle to walk their daughter down the aisle together. NOT A DRY EYE at the ceremony… including me! Families are what we make them…make it about your kids and not your ego. Congratulations Todd Bachman on showing your kids what true love really is…love for your children. Please share so that we can spread kindness throughout!”
