The tradition of a father walking his daughter down the aisle has become much more than giving the bride away. It has since become a special and emotional moment shared between father and daughter during a life-changing milestone.
One father brought new meaning to this time-honored tradition when he accompanied his youngest daughter on her special day while he was ill and bed-bound. A picture of the walk simply captioned "A Father's Love" posted on Aug 9 quickly went viral and currently has 22,000 likes and 15,000 shares as of this writing.
The picture was captured by Law Tapalla Photography, the official wedding photographer. The bride, Charlotte Gay Villarin, has her fingers laced around those of her father who, despite being weak, looks lovingly at his daughter from a stretcher, which is being pulled down the aisle. On the bride's left side is her mother.
