1 minute read

As father of the bride, Todd Bachman had the privilege of giving his daughter away at her wedding. But when he reached the beginning of the aisle, he realized he didn’t want to do it alone. Bachman halted the wedding procession to grab the hand of the bride’s stepdad so they could both walk Brittany down the aisle.

Photos of the moment were captured by photographer Delia D Blackburn and posted on her Facebook page.

“Todd reached out his hand and grabbed Brittany’s stepfather and pulled him down the aisle to walk their daughter down the aisle together,” Blackburn wrote. “NOT A DRY EYE at the ceremony..including me! Families are what we make them…make it about your kids and not your ego.”

After the ceremony, Bachman told the photographer, “He has helped me raise my daughter and he should be walking with us.”
