When it comes to weddings, many couples take their traditions very seriously. From the “something old” and “something blue” to the first dance, certain rituals are very important for a bride and groom on their big day.
When a bride is preparing to marry the man of her dreams, her father will typically walk her down the aisle and share her first dance. It’s a symbolic way of saying goodbye and ushering her into a new life with her husband.
Newlywed Nicole Cortez was expecting her father to be part of her big day. But nothing could have prepared her for what he did instead.
At first, it looks like dad is preparing to give his little girl a special wedding toast. But when he bypasses the mic, it becomes clear that he has other plans.
Suddenly, the look on Nicole’s face changes when she realizes what her father has done. It’s the most amazing, heartwarming gesture he could have made at her wedding.
The song “I Loved Her First” by the band Heartland begins pouring through the speakers. What dad does next leaves Nicole in utter disbelief.
Though not deaf herself, Nicole is a sign language interpreter. Dad wanted to show his daughter just how much she meant to him on her big day, so he did something absolutely heart melting to show her.
No one ever anticipated Dad to do this for Nicole. Her reaction is simply beautiful.
Watch dad surprise his daughter with a message from the heart in the touching video below.
