Then it was time for the father-daughter dance. Thankfully, I was not nervous about dancing with my Dad, like I was dancing with Lucas, as my Dad and I have been dancing together since I had learned how to walk. He introduced me to all of the jazz greats — our favorite being Frank Sinatra — thus there was no other artist I would even consider dancing to other than Ol’ Blue Eyes. Together, we chose the song, “The Way You Look Tonight.”
Oh, how I never wanted the song to end! I think my Dad felt the same way?
When you have three brothers and you are the only girl in the family, you are destined to be “Daddy’s little girl.” Even though I am now married that does not change a thing, as I will forever be his princess.
About halfway through the song, I felt a tap on my shoulder. Alex, my brother/Man of Honor, had cut in and asked my Dad’s permission to finish dancing the song with me.
No one in this world makes me laugh harder or fills my heart with more joy than him.
After the song finished, it was time for one of the highlight’s of the evening: my dear friend, Nathan Leigh Jones, performed his song, “Beautiful You.” If you do not know the endearing story behind our friendship, you can read it here.
I am certain that you can tell from the expression on my face in the following picture just how deeply I was moved by his performance. It is not only my favorite song of his, but the fact that he flew all the way from Australia to Argentina to sing it on my wedding day is something I will never forget!
After the song I could not resist running over to Nathan and giving him a gigantic hug of gratitude.
Once I returned to my seat, Lucas came over to me to let me know that it was time for everyone’s favorite part of the night.
