Best of the Best | Our Favorite Wedding Day Moments with Dad
June 13, 2019
The value of love and marriage is something we begin to learn and appreciate transparently through our parents. The love our parents show one another provides the universal foundation for us throughout our lives on how to love and care for another person. Even if we don’t realize it! We start to evolve this idea on how to love and how we want to be loved. This is well demonstrated for us by how our Dads care for our Mom. Dad has a big job. A Dads consistency to pick us up after every scraped knee, failure or heartbreak fills us with that comfort we hope to find when we finally meet that person of our dreams to share a life with.
Although a Dad is forever, and no one can take that spot, it comes close when a Father walks his daughter down the aisle and hands her off to that man she loves; who in return has promised to fill his big shoes. The years start to flash before your eyes. The first word, the first time she rode a bike, the first day of school. All the memories building that exact woman to be the beautiful and strong individual that stands before you.. is all flying by.
The moments between a father and son or father and daughter on the wedding day are so special to capture. For Fathers day this year, we wanted to show a little extra love to all the Dad’s out there. Grab the tissues! Here are some of our favorite ‘Dad’ photos from wedding day!
We could go on for DAYS about all our favorite Dad moments on the wedding day! There’s one thing for sure, these special gentlemen are certainly underrated when it comes to the wedding day spotlight. Although they are typically humbly smiling from the sideline, we’d love to throw some recognition their way. Happy Father’s Day to all you amazing dads out there!
Independently lovely, and the perfect compliment to one another: passionate & confident. You love deeply and wistfully, present yourself with grace and gratitude, you are eloquent and understated yet always find room for a statement piece. Delicate yet strong, adventurous yet peaceful. You are loyal to your heart and find foundation in your family.
