A dad in Ohio is making national headlines after he paused his daughter’s wedding to invite her stepfather to join him in walking her down the aisle.
The couple’s photographer, Delia D. Blackburn, told BuzzFeed News that Brittany Peck’s father, Todd Bachman, was proceeding down the aisle when he suddenly stopped and walked over to her stepfather, Todd Cendrosky.
Blackburn said the guests clearly had no idea what he was doing.
“Everyone was a little bit concerned because there had been tension,” she said.
But then, Bachman did something amazing. He grabbed Cendrosky and asked him if he would help him walk Brittany Peck down the aisle. “I think he said something along the lines of ‘You helped raise her,’” Blackburn said.
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, Blackburn said.
“The groom was extremely happy,” she said. “The bride, she was in tears because this was a little bit of a struggle for her.”
“I had to tell myself to hurry up and get the shot because I was losing it,” she said.
