Bittersweet Daddy Moments


Mindy and I attended a wedding on Saturday. Here is a picture of the beautiful bride dancing with her daddy...



They played "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman. As a dad, this kind of hits me on a visceral level. I don't know that there is any way to fully prepare your heart for the rollercoaster of emotions that must come on a day like this.

Watching his little girl ride away with the man of her dreams...



I guess it's kind of unusual that I didn't include a picture of the groom. They do look so happy together! It was an absolutely beautiful, joyous and wonderful wedding and reception! For more pictures, go HERE.

But this post is for the member of the wedding party that I identify most with...

the daddy.

Here's to you, Tim. Well done, my friend!

I remember this time last year. My oldest daughter's wedding was coming up in Sept. I could hear a certain song on the radio and just start crying.
It is sad seeing your children marry and leave with their new life but it's happy also ....
Hard to believe Sept. 27 Tiffany and Dustin will be celebrating their 1 year anniversary. Wow....

Also, the pictures are all beautiful. You do such a great job!
About pictures, I got me a new camera. I didn't go all out because I decided I would be happier with something I could carry around in my purse. After doing some research I got a Kodak EasyShare. It has 14 MP and 5x zoom ... that is pretty good for a camera of that size. Maybe one day I'll splurge on something bigger and take a photography class or something. :-)

Have a great day,
Tracy

Such a sweet intimate moment between Daddy and Daughter. There is such a special bond in the relationship. When our younger daughter was married they danced to "Blessed" by Elton John and I cried so hard I could barely see.
Wonderful memories and beautiful photographs!

David,
Thanks for the blog comments and the pictures. The pictures you took were my favorites. It is tough being the father of the bride, but everything about this just seemed right, which made it somewhat easier I suppose. Besides that, she married an Aggie, that's a good start right?
