Dads & Grandads,
You are the careful straightening of a bow tie in the mirror, the gentle exhale as you see her in white for the first time, the arm that holds your little girl up as she is overcome with joy, and the quiet wish that the father daughter dance could last just a few seconds longer...
You are the careful straightening of a bowtie in the mirror, the heartfelt well wishes over bourbon with the groomsman, the bear hug right before you watch your son take his place at the front of the aisle, the quick swipe of a happy tear that falls during the vows...
You are the secret heart behind weddings. You watch and listen and hug and dance. You support endlessly and love tirelessly. Today is for you. I hope you know how much you are loved and appreciated today and always.
Dads and Grandads, I hope you have a beautiful Father's Day this weekend.
A huge thank you to my second shooters, who hang out with the gentleman at the beginning of the day and capture so many special dad moments :)
