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!

Hannah’s dad seeing for the first time on an already emotional day had us in tears.

The whole family helped him look his best to see his little girl.

Seeing Hannah’s grandpa wheel his son out of the house for his daughters wedding was heartfelt and heart wrenching at the same time

This scene will forever be embedded in our memory. Hannah & Dan, sharing their vows, in a beautiful church, Dad watching from the side aisle.
Morgan’s Dad “giving her away” and embracing Eric, welcoming him into the family.

Sarah’s Dad, looking so proud, helping her out of the Cottage house!
Stephanie and her dad shared a very special bond that was felt throughout the entire day.
WE LOVED how Steph’s dad was even there to help his future Son in Law get ready at the Sagamore resort, nothing like a true welcome to the family!
Litsa walking down the aisle, both her and her dad smiling cheek to cheek!
Brittany’s dad so proud of how gorgeous his daughter looked (we agree!) at the Newport, RI wedding!
Kate’s dad looking super dapper (and a little teary!) seeing her for the first time at their spring wedding at Lord Thompson Manor.

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!
