Wedding Recaps - Father, Daughter Dance

About a month before our first wedding date I asked my dad to choose our father-daughter song. 
Knowing how things roll at my parents' house... I told him Mom and Kayli could HELP... 
But I would like it to be his choice. ;)
After much searching and having Kayli print him out the lyrics to several songs (so he knew what they were really saying!) he made his choice. 

I loved her first by Heartland. 
To hear and read the full lyrics to the song, click here

The chorus goes, 
"I loved her first, I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep"

In that first picture up there he was telling me, 
"Where's Mr. M (he said his name) he needs to hear this." :)
Love my dad. 

Mr. M was there... To the left, see. :) He heard. 

Little Miss Corryn joined in of course. 
She was straight up cutting a rug ALL night. :)
Cracked my dad up!!

That's my mama and Mr. M watching behind us there.
Then they joined in! :) 

She looked lovely in her pretty blue dress with her hair down! :) 
Everyone said so. 

Don't know what I'd do without the AMAZING parents I am truly blessed to call mine. 
I don't get to see them near enough... We live 3 hours apart now... 
Everyone is so busy anymore. But when I do I now know to cherish every minute! 

Love you mom and dad!!!!
