Recently, a bride went viral for stopping the wedding and insisting on waiting for he dad to arrive – even if he only managed to reach the church after more than 15 minutes!
In a wedding, having your parents by your side is truly a dream come true. In fact, a lot of brides and grooms insist of letting their parents walk by their side even if the two have long separated, because there’s really just something about having them both at your side at the wedding that makes the event extra special.

Of course, there are circumstances that make this difficult to do, particularly in situations like what happened at the wedding of Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli who had to keep the ceremony a secret because the bride’s mother wouldn’t let her 31-year-old daughter get married yet!
In a post that brought tears to many netizens’ eyes, photographer Jamel Ara Pasilan shared what happened during the wedding of Hermo and Tin that he and his team at NQ Modern Photo were covering last February 28 at the San Agustin Church in Manila.
With the church being known for being very strict in its schedules, the tension was palpable as the bride refused to take one step further without her dad by her side. But the family couldn’t contact him.
According to Pasilan in his post, they were all wondering what happened to the bride’s dad, but theyhad seen him head out of the Manila Hotel ahead of their vehicle.
“More than 15 minutes biglang dumating si Daddy humahangos…
… and the crowd was clapping and cheering, and everyone was so happy, and I cried. We’ve been shooting weddings for almost 10 years and now, it sinks in really hard… it all goes down to that one special thing, FAMILY…
Who will forever stand by your side, together… walang iwanan, kahit ano pa yan.
You know what happened to Daddy? Hindi daw sya pinayagang magpark sa San Agustin for some reasons, so he went back to Manila Hotel to park his car. Tapos nag Taxi na lang sya, at nung feeling nya hindi sya aabot, basta na lang sya nangharang at biglang umangkas sa kung sino mang motor na nakita nya. Nagalit ang may ari ng motor nung una. “Pasensya ka na! ikakasal ang anak ko kailangan ko umabot.”
He might be thinking his little girl is waiting for him.
And yes, she is waiting for Daddy in the middle of the aisle.
Everyone had tears in their eyes as they watched the bride, now smiling and happy that her dad was finally there and able to walk her down the aisle on her big day. It was the sweetest, most wonderful thing!
