Father of the Bride Tearfully Stops Wedding So Daughter’s Stepdad Can Also Give Her Away

One wedding doesn’t go as planned after father of the bride haunts the ceremony unexpectedly.

Brittany Blackburn was getting married to the love of her life in front of all her friends and family. The young woman was blessed enough to have two loving households growing up. After her parents divorced and remarried, the families were able to peacefully coexist.

Fast forward to her wedding day, the bride is handed a difficult situation. Unfortunately, she would have to decide which “dad” would have the privilege of walking her down the aisle. She was in tears at the thought of choosing between the two.  She loved her biological dad and stepfather equally.


Mr. Cendrosky, Brittany’s stepfather, understood the logical choice Brittany was forced to make. He had prepared to support his daughter from the “sidelines.” Mr. Blackburn, the actual father of the bride, had a different plan.

The big day finally arrived. Dressed in their Sunday best, the two men and their daughter prepared for an emotional ceremony. The bridesmaids were escorted down the aisle, followed by the beautiful flower girls. Brittany’s turn was next. Mr. Blackburn had his daughter on his arm.


Suddenly, Brittany’s biological dad haunts the procession right in the middle of the ceremony. Guests were sure the wedding would take a turn for the worse. Mr. Blackburn ran to his daughter’s stepdad and invited the man to the walk down the aisle with them.

“You worked as hard as I have. You’ll help us walk our daughter down the aisle,” Mr. Blackburn told the stepdad.

Everyone in attendance began silently sobbing after the emotional moment. Mr. Cendrosky was especially touched and struggled to hold back the tears.

Brittany’s father explained it only made sense for b0th her fathers to escort their daughter down the aisle. He goes on to say her stepdad was “as much her father as he was.” The rest of the wedding went off without a hitch. Brittany’s stepfather would forever cherish the day he gave his daughter away.

“…[When] Todd grabbed my hand … that was the best day of my life, and I wouldn’t change that day for the world….We have become family,” Mr. Cendrosky explained. “…I don’t have stepdaughters, I have daughters.”‘
