Father Of The Bride Stops Wedding And Grabs Bride’s Stepfather, Pulls Him To The Altar In Beautiful Act Of Selflessness

Photographer Delia Blackburn captured an amazing moment of emotion while shooting a wedding ceremony. The September 26th wedding of Brittany and Jeremy Peck seemed to be going as planned, until the father of the bride, Todd Bachman, abruptly stopped the bridal procession halfway down the aisle.

To everyone’s surprise, Bachman grabbed the hand of the last person you’d expect -Brittany’s Stepfather- and led him toward the aisle. Brittany’s father and stepfather walked her hand in hand to give Brittany away, together as a family.


Delia gave a first-hand account of the emotional scene below.

Grab tissues… because you will need it as you look through these pictures. Todd Bachman, father of the bride, brought his daughter to the beginning of the aisle…he stopped the procession while people were confused at his actions and he walked up to his daughter’s stepfather. Todd reached out his hand and grabbed Brittany’s stepfather and pulled him down the aisle to walk their daughter down the aisle together. NOT A DRY EYE at the ceremony..including me! Families are what we make them…make it about your kids and not your ego. Congratulations Todd Bachman on showing your kids what true love really is…love for your children. Please share so that we can spread kindness throughout!


Bachman’s humble gesture of mutual respect is moving like wildfire through the internet. The moment shows that family can come in all shades. This love is powerful!
