Happy Father's Day from limelight photography

 

We wanted to wish all the hard working, dedicated, loving father's out there a very Happy Father's Day! A father's bond with his daughter is like no other, and is nurturing like no other. They are the protectors, and the ones to go the distance to provide a child with whatever they may need. In honor of that, we asked a few of our brides to share the feelings that were exchanged with their dad on their big wedding day!

"I could go on and on about how special my dad is to me as I'm sure many daughters could. The first look with my dad was a very special moment and one I will forever remember. I don't think he likes to get too mushy and emotional with me, but at this moment, I could feel all of his emotions get completely soft as our arms folded together in a hug. He teared up. I had to hold back my tears. I'm so lucky to have him and so blessed he was present to give me away to my husband. He will forever be the first man I loved."- Lauren + Kyle | 4.30.16

"All I can really say is that I'm an only child and was always a "daddy's girl" growing up. Still am :). We are extremely close and I look up to him so much. He is a wonderful man and I always hoped I could marry one that treats me like he treats my mom. Luckily I found John! Exactly what I was looking for. Both of them are true gentlemen. I think in that moment my dad and I were just really happy and overcome with emotion that this day had finally arrived. He loves John like a son and it's awesome to know that my family really, truly loves who I married. When I was growing up I was pretty much a "tom boy" learning how to shoot guns and playing sports with my dad. He taught me how to change oil in cars, haha! So in a way, I was kind of like the son he never had, but now he really has a son that he loves to hang out with and do guy things with. It's just an all around great relationship.

"My dad and I are very close and he had been looking forward to this day (and also dreading it) for a while. When I was dressed and ready to go, I wanted to be able to give him a first look. When he walked in and saw me, he beamed. I was going to wear my grandmother’s ring on my right hand so she would be close to me on my big day and having him place the ring on my finger was very special."- Francesca + Tim | 2.6.16

"One of the most cherished moments and memories from my wedding day was my Dad seeing me for the first time in my wedding dress.  We had a few minutes together and I was able to give him the gift I had made for him.  The words I chose came from deep within my heart; thanking him for walking by my side everyday of my life and reassuring him that I will forever be his little girl.  As he later stated in his toast that night, I have been daddy's little girl since the day I was born.  A father and a daughter share a very special bond and I know that I am truly blessed that I got to share my special day with the first man I ever loved."- Christy +Mark | 2.27.16

"With so much going on during our wedding day, walking down the aisle with my dad was a great moment because I knew he was so happy to be one of the big stars of the show, and how excited he was to have my husband join our family. Many of the groomsmen in our wedding who got to spend time with my dad kept telling me how cool they think he is, and that made me appreciate even more what a great dad I have!" - Sarah + Sam | 4.23.16

"When my dad first came up to my room to escort me down to the wedding, it was an overflow of emotions: love, happiness, and excitement. It was a special moment that I'll remember forever and one of the moments that in all the commotion of your wedding day, you somehow remember every bit of that brief moment after the fact. He hugged me and told me how happy he was for me and how much he loved me. As I went to put his boutineer on, I'll never forget that extra sparkle he had in his eye- that sparkle reassured me that I was about to marry my soulmate."- Claire + Bryson | 2.20.16

"These were a few of the most amazing moments captured on my wedding day. Growing up, my Dad always carried a handkerchief. This was the perfect gift for my Dad on my wedding day! My dad has always been there for me, and is my biggest supporter. We have been through a lot over the last several years, and our bond continues to grow stronger. A father is the glue that holds a family together. These pictures mean the world to me, as they truly captured the love between a father and his baby on her wedding day."- Kerry + Stevie | 4.23.16
