Weddings are one of the greatest celebrations of love and commitment. For the father of the bride, it signifies giving her daughter to the groom. It does not matter the age, she will always be her little girl. One of the most traditional things fathers and daughters do is the father-daughter dance. Realizing what this implies does not make it any easier on the father. Fathers like to play tough-guys, but the thing is that giving their daughter out is one of the most difficult things for them.
They cannot help but remember when their daughter was a little baby. They would carry her in their arms and play with her. They will also remember when they took their daughter out to get some candy, sometimes without the mother knowing. For Lisa Getz and her husband Paul, it would prove to be a very special one. They planned their wedding on time and had the last-minute goose bumps like everyone else. They made out their list of the most important people in their lives. Everything was ready when the day finally came.
Finally, the moment of the father-daughter dance was here. Lisa and her dad are huge fans of Tim McGraw. When Lisa and her dad had to choose a special song, they knew exactly what they were going to pick. Lisa’s dad pulls her up to the dance floor for the traditional daddy-daughter dance. Tim McGraw’s classic “My Little Girl”. Starts playing. They could not have picked up a better song for this occasion. Lisa has always been daddy’s little girl.
She has no idea, but her father has put his hand into his old bag of tricks to come up with an incredible surprise.
They are dancing and Lisa’s back is turned to the stage. She is loving the song and is very close to tears. Everyone is very moved by the moment because they are aware of the close relationship they have always had.
A few seconds into the song, Dave finally tells Lisa to turn back towards the stage. It takes her a little while to realize what it is going on. It takes her quite a while to ascertain exactly what was happening and once she finally realized what was unfolding in front of her, she had a very difficult time keeping her composure.
She turns around and sees Tim McGraw himself performing the song live. Even the guests have a tough time following what was going on. When they do, they have another reason to be glad for attending the wedding. And a very cool story to tell their friends.
