Dad, Step-Dad Hold Hands as They Walk Bride Down the Aisle


Get ready, because this story is bound to bring some tears:

One of the biggest traditions of a wedding is the father walking his daughter down the aisle. Photos from a wedding in Ohio are going viral showing a father of the bride doing an incredibly selfless task so the bride's stepdad could also take part in the joyous day.



According to Ohio-based wedding photographer Delia Blackburn, Todd Bachman was in the middle of walking his daughter, Brittany, down the aisle when he stopped the ceremony.

The photos show the father turning around and grabbing his daughter's stepdad, Todd Cendrosky. Bachman thought they both should take part in the ceremony and walk Brittany down the aisle.






You can see the emotion in both of the fathers' faces. Photos show Brittany's stepfather tearing up as Bachman grabs his hand. The two men raised Brittany so he believed both should have this honor.

The photographer shared the photos on Facebook saying that there was not a dry eye in the house, including hers.

Blackburn said she was lucky to have captured the moment and praised Bachman for his selfless act of kindness, "when you make it about your kids and not your ego...life can be so beautiful even for a moment."
