Father Overcome With Emotion During 'First Look' With Daughter on Her Wedding Day

Playing Dad Overcome With Joy Seeing Daughter in Wedding Dress

A father couldn’t hold back tears as he saw his daughter for an emotional "first look" on her wedding day.

Gladys Salinas, of Texas, was minutes away from marrying her long-time boyfriend Miguel Salinas when her dad entered the room where she was getting ready before she walked down the aisle.

At that moment, everyone in the room was overcome with emotion. 

“We hadn’t planned on doing a 'first look' with my dad; our photographer set it up," Salinas told InsideEdition.com. "She had one of our bridesmaids go get him. They let him in and that was pretty awesome. I was expecting to see him emotional, just not to that extent. It was tear-jerking.”

She said her dad tried to laugh off the tears, but it didn’t work. He wasn’t able to get any words out during their special moment.

Salinas said she’s always been attached to her father at the hip.

“Wherever he went, I was there, from a very young age," Salinas said. "It was always us two." 

Salinas was married in a Dallas Spanish Catholic Church on Dec. 2.

Salinas’ sister, Rosa Moran, shared the moment between father and daughter on social media, where it quickly went viral.

The video has been retweeted more than 70,000 times since it was posted on Salinas’ wedding day.

It’s a moment the family will truly never forget.

Salinas said she plans to move to North Carolina where her husband lives. The two spent their entire relationship as a long-distance couple.
