We celebrated all the moms last month in honor of Mother’s Day, including this wonderful post of our favorite mother/daughter moments. Well, now it’s the dads’ turn! And let me tell you, these are just as sweet! Starting off this dad themed content is this adorable counterpart featuring our favorite father of the bride moments and details!
Quintessential FOB Duty
The first moment that comes to everyone’s mind when it comes to FOB duties is walking his daughter down the aisle, and this dad’s look (above) steals the show! I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again. When people say a picture is worth 1000 words, this is what they’re talking about. Between the tears in Julie’s dad’s eyes with the look of pride and happiness as she looks to her future, cue the waterworks!
Sweet First Look
One trend we hope never goes away is the bride’s first look with her dad! Blaire and her dad’s sweet embrace is enough evidence why too!
If that wasn’t enough to convince you, we definitely have more where that came from! Exhibit B: Ellen’s adorable father and his complete awe of his daughter on the big day! I mean, so cute, right?
A first look with your first love and the man who raised you is of course sentimental and emotional. This moment with Brittany and her dad shows exactly that, and makes us shed a tear too! Candice Jones captured that one tear so beautifully too!
Cute Gifts for Dad
Not only did Devon do a completely adorable first look with her dad, but she also gave him such a meaningful keepsake too! A personalized handkerchief to use on the day of and to always have is a wonderful idea and clearly a favorite from her dad. Hers said, “Daddy, of all the walks we have taken together this one is my favorite. As the first man I ever loved, when you give me away, know I will always be your little girl.”
For most brides, the moment before they walk down the aisle is when it finally starts to hit them that they’re getting married. Kendall had this exact moment with her dad before she married her soulmate.
She said, “When my dad turned on the car to drive me to the ceremony site, ‘The Best Day of My Life’ by American Authors came on the radio. I immediately broke down because it just seemed like a confirmation from a higher power that this truly would be the most amazing day! The sun was shining, the weather was perfect, and I was going to marry my prince charming. In that moment with my dad, it just all hit me at once and I was so thankful.”
You can tell by the look on their faces how special that moment is!
Daddy’s Little Girl
Jane and her dad definitely have a close relationship and she made sure to include him in various aspects of her wedding day. From their first look and walking down the aisle together to their father/daughter dance (her favorite moment!), it’s too cute for words!
Jane told us, “The best part of the day was the dance with my daddy. We have loved dancing together since I was a little girl, so we decided we needed to ‘do it big’ for my big day. We trained for 8 weeks before the wedding and came up with a long routine that had all of our favorite songs. Even though we got to perform it for all of our family and friends, the dance was really meant for us. We are so close, so the time we got to spend practicing together is irreplaceable. It was something I will never forget!”
