A Bride and Her Daddy

I have been browsing wedding blogs all week to find inspiration to start planning my own when I came across a re-cap of a beautiful wedding on Hey Gorgeous: Daily Wedding Pretties and Advice that included this photo and caption:

"Priceless. Rachelle tells me that this was one of the most touching moments of the day when Melissa's Dad saw his daughter as a bride for the first time. The photos above are so sweet and moving. I think every father dreams of the day he gets to walk his daughter down the aisle, no?"
Those photos and emotions are priceless and it makes me extremely sad. I will not have that experience on my wedding day. The chance of it happening was taken away from me by my Dad so many years ago when he made those damaging decisions to destroy our family.

I know I will be surrounded by love on my wedding day with the people who matter most to me, but it breaks my heart when I realize that the dream of having my Dad walk me down the aisle is dead. It will never come true.

All I can hope for if I ever have a daughter of my own, is that she is able to live out this dream on her own wedding day.
