Watermarks Camp in Scottsville, VA and she agreed to shooting some video clips throughout the wedding day (and I’m going to LOVE her forever!!!! and owe her big time!). Luckily, this clip was one of those amazing moments that I NEVER want to forget…. The Daddy/Daughter Dance. I warned Jasmine a week before the wedding that just the THOUGHT of dancing with my daddy made me break down in tears and so be warned, the dancing shots were not going to be pretty! She promised to snap away before the floodgates opened wide. If I remember correctly, she didn’t have much time because as soon as Daddy took my hand, I lost it. Tears were flowing, makeup was running and I will NEVER forget my dance with my dad. Daddy and I had VERY different views on wedding decor and wedding planning in general. Daddy would have thought the reception was gorgeous if we had just had a single votive on the table! He just doesn’t “get” the twigs and vintage vases and old birdcage idea….and every time UPS delivered ANOTHER box… his response was “MORE BIRDCAGES?!! MORE?!”. Well, after seeing the reception glowing with lanterns, the tables decorated with twigs and the mahogany chivary chairs…. daddy looked at me during our dance and told me everything was perfect…. everything…. even all of my birdcages that he thought were so unnecessary. I buried my head on his shoulder and cried some more and then I got to share a little something special with him that my wonderful DJ and I had put together the week before! (Thanks Richard!)
So all brides to be, don’t be afraid to try something a little new and different for your daddy/daughter dances…. for ANY of your dances really. I worried that this idea would be a little cheesy but it ended up being one of my favorite moments of our entire reception! So enjoy and get creative!!! Love you all!….Even though I have no idea who I’m talking to! ha!
