Maybe I’m just a Daddy’s Girl at heart, but this incredible father-daughter dance has me crying like a baby.

Here at Little Things, we know well that sometimes the most touching moments of a person’s wedding day don’t always happen between the bride and groom. This mother waited 20 years to give her daughter a touching surprise on her big day and the result was unforgettable, but there’s no denying it’s usually dear old Dad who brings on the wedding waterworks.

At most weddings, I always find the father-daughter dance way more emotional than a couple’s first dance as newlyweds. 

, some brides don’t realize just how lucky they are to have their father present on such a special occasion.

Andrea Stockton probably would have done just about anything to dance with her dad on her wedding night and no one knew this better than her brother, Nick. Thinking she would nix the traditional father-daughter dance, Andrea was shocked when Nick revealed he recorded “Butterfly Kisses” and would be stepping in to dance with his sister, along with some other important men in her life.

This song gets me every single time, but I think you’ll agree that this time it was used in the best possible way.
