For a bride, her wedding day is one of the most important days of her life and there is a good chance that she started planning the event at a very young age. She goes through the day in her head multiple times, leading up to the big event, and she will do anything to make sure that the event is executed flawlessly. One of the most dreamed about parts of the wedding for the bride, is the father-daughter dance. It’s the moment that can lead even the the strongest of wedding guests in tears because it is a turning point in life and a passage into adulthood. It is the father witnessing his little girl as a grown up. For those who have strong father-daughter relationships, seeing this part of the wedding is guaranteed to stir up some tears.
Nowadays, wedding parties are known to switch up the classic traditions and it’s not uncommon for a bride and groom to exchange the slow, romantic song for a fun, entertaining dance that will leave wedding guests dancing along with them on the edge of the dance floor. Traditional wedding dances are no longer the usual, as couples have been known to bust a move to “Baby Got Back,” and musical montages from an array of generations.
But, one bride decided to switch it up during the father daughter dance. Utah bride Mikayla Phillips shocked all 400 wedding guests when she got her dad on board to create the most epic father-daughter dance of all time. Mikayla and her dad Nathan Ellison, executed a complete routine to a mix of ten different songs, all of which had meaning for them as a father-daughter pair.
