I am a big-time daddy’s girl. A father is the first man that you love. He’s the man who held you in his arms when you were just a baby. He wiped away tears, checked for monsters under the bed, and danced with you on his toes. I remember at my wedding looking over to my dad and seeing his eyes full of tears, and his smile was big enough to break my heart. It’s this wonderful moment I will cherish forever. He was giving away his baby girl to be provided for, loved, and protected by another man. I remember the way he held me tight as he walked me down the aisle and told me that he loved me, and told me that I was worth all the love in the world.

When you see the way that he looks at you, you wonder if it’s even possible for another human being to look at you with that much love and affection. Then, when you walk down the aisle and your eyes lock with those of your future husband’s, you realize that indeed it absolutely is possible.Click here to see that beautiful moment caught on camera.

Here are pictures that beautifully capture that special moment between father and daughter before she gets married.
