It’s Father’s Day! To mark the occasion, we want to say thanks to Dads everywhere :)
In addition to being honored today, many fathers also play a big part during the wedding day. Whether it’s tearfully walking his daughter down the aisle, or showing off some funky moves during parent dances, Dad has definitely earned his moment in the sun.
To celebrate the unconditional love Dads provide, we’ve gathered a few of our favorite photos of “Dads being Dads” on the big day. Enjoy!
One special way to honor Dad on the wedding day is with a First Look. By setting aside a little quiet pre-ceremony time together, you can show Dad how important he is to you. For example, at Allison and Justin’s wedding at Condor’s Nest Ranch, we captured Allison’s father’s reaction to seeing her for the first time (below).
During Anjali and Jay’s wedding at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego (below), guests surprised Jay’s father with an impromptu outdoor dance. As Jay looked on, we were able to quickly react, and grabbed this fun crowd scene.
We love capturing unguarded expressions of joy and emotion. For example, at Allison and Adam’s ceremony at La Valencia (below), Allison’s father shared his excitement with a huge grin. These moments, endearing and genuine, always leave a soft spot in our hearts.
If couples have little ones, we love finding fun and creative ways to include these “mini me’s” into the day’s photos. At Shara and Giovanni’s wedding at Grand Tradition, Giovanni’s son was dressed just as sharp as Dad, and rocked these adorable baby moccasins (below).
During Morvarid and Sahand’s reception at the Metropol Banquet (below), Morvarid and her father entertained guests with a lighthearted, traditional dance, which capped off the night’s activities.
