Laurel Loves || A Father’s First Look

On her wedding day, there are two love stories on a bride’s mind. One is the sheer excitement of being united with her groom. While the other is of a bond that has been forming since she was born — the one between she and her Dad.

And there’s something about when a father sees his daughter as a bride for the first time — that tells us he feels the same way.

“You fathers will understand,” recalls George Banks in Father of the Bride. “You have a little girl. An adorable little girl who looks up to you and adores you in a way you could never have imagined. I remember how her little hand used to fit inside mine.”

The anticipation, the look, the love — a sweet moment for brides and their Dads. And while it is a bittersweet moment, it’s sweet to know that a daughter’s wedding day is the start of a new bond with her Dad — not the end.

To all the Dads out there who still remember your little girl’s hand fitting perfectly inside your own, Happy Father’s Day!
