An Emotional Moment

Your wedding day is an occasion when even the toughest dad lets himself totally unleash emotions and demonstrate the true love for his child, who is stepping into a new and exciting life period. The palette of feelings he experiences is difficult to explain or somehow analyze. Your dad is happy that you’re marrying the man you love; however, he is also a bit embarrassed that time flies so fast, and you’re no longer that little girl he took care of. So, spend some time in person with your father, give him hugs and allow this emotional moment to become your mutually important memory.
