Video of Bride's Emotional First Dance Goes Viral
It's a heart-wrenching video. A beautiful bride whose dad died of cancer dissolved into tears as one-by-one, family members step in to take his place for an emotional daddy-daughter dance on her wedding day.
Andrea Stocking's dad, Mark, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer and never got the chance to fulfill his dream of dancing with his daughter to the song "Butterfly Kisses" on her big day.
Andrea was shocked when her older brother, Nick, announced that he had recorded her dad's favorite song just for her.
Her grandfather was the first to step up to start the daddy-daughter dance, and the tears began to flow.
Andrea's grandfather was followed by her brother, Luke, and by then there wasn't a dry eye at the reception.
Then Nick stepped in to hold his sister tight on the dance floor. The final dancer was father-in-law, Scott, welcoming Andrea to the family.
INSIDE EDITION spoke to the bride, Andrea Stocking of Delray Beach, Florida, about her special dance.
She said, "You know the whole day, there's that sadness that you're missing someone very important. It makes me feel like my dad is smiling, like he's saying, 'Even though I wasn't there, this is my gift to you.'"
It was a special dance this bride said would have overjoyed her beloved dad.
