It was Brittany Peck’s big day in Ohio, she had been planning her wedding day for months and now the day had come. She was ready to walk down the aisle with her husband-to-be but something was not quite right. She had to pick which father would walk her down the aisle, Todd Bachman is her biological father and Todd Chendrosky is her step father who has been looking after her since she was a child, but she only had to choose one and that made her feel uncomfortable. She spoke to her biological father a day before her wedding telling him that “Dad, something’s bothering me…” and Bachman knew she was torn inside and didn’t want her to feel that way.
So as the special big day arrived, the guests were all sat down at the lovely outdoor ceremony waiting for the bride to make her appearance. Within moments Todd Bachman went over to Todd Chendrosky and asked him to walk their daughter down the aisle together. This was a shocking moment because they had never seen eye to eye for years, Todd Chendrosky got very emotional as he thought he would have to watch his step daughter being walked down the aisle while he would have sat in the audience. So the idea of walking her too made him very happy, the guests immediately started crying knowing the two men’s history, yet sharing a beautiful moment of respect.
Bachman said “For me to thank him for all the years of helping raise our daughter wouldn’t be enough.. there is no better way to thank somebody than to assist me walking her down the aisle.” He appreciated all those years that Chendrosky was there for his daughter and he wanted to share that precious moment between a father and daughter. He had planned this from the movement he knew something was bothering his daughter. What a lovely surprise for his daughter on her special day!
Photographer Delia D Blackburn did a great job by capturing the beautiful moment that she wasn’t expecting to capture, yet she managed to photograph the emotions just in the right time moments before the bride was walked down the aisle with two men by her side. Brilliant!
