Bride’s Dad Stops Wedding To Invite Her Stepfather To Walk Down The Aisle With Them

Parents can have their disputes, but when they overcome them for the sake of their children, they show their true parenting chops. At Brittany Peck’s wedding, her biological father stopped the ceremony to invite Peck’s stepfather to join them in their walk down the aisle – a gesture that none of them will ever forget.

“He came up to me, reached out and grabbed my hand and he said ‘hey, you’ve worked for this as hard as I have, you deserve this as much as I do, you’re gonna help us walk our daughter down the aisle,'” step-dad Todd Cendrosky told WKYC in Cleveland, Ohio. Peck’s biological dad, Todd Bachman, said, “What better way to thank somebody than to assist me walking our daughter down the aisle?”

Their 14-year relationship has had its troubles; “It hasn’t always been peaches and cream by any stretch of the imagination,” Bachman said. Fortunately, they were able to put their difficulties aside for this unforgettable day – and the beautiful moments were all captured on camera by wedding photographer Delia Blackburn!

“He came up to me, reached out and grabbed my hand and he said ‘hey, you’ve worked for this as hard as I have, you deserve this as much as I do”

Step-dad Todd Cendrosky had no idea about biological father Todd Bachman’s plans

“What better way to thank somebody than to assist me walking our daughter down the aisle?” said Bachman

“I got weak in the knees and everything, I couldn’t have had anything better in my life, It was the most important thing in my life,” said Cendrosky

“It hasn’t always been peaches and cream by any stretch of the imagination,” said Bachman, but it looks like it was on the day that mattered most!

That's so beautiful. It makes me so happy, but also sad to think that the world is broken and messed up enough for people to even have stepfathers. I am so privileged to have only one, and i wish others had that opportunity.

There's nothing to be sad about. Those people have parents who chose a different path in life. That doesn't actually make them any less 'priviledged' than you.

No one will ever know all the facts except this one that stands out as a 'fact of life'. Live and let live. What a legacy for this lucky woman that two men Love her above any/all differences they made have.

That's what a dad does. This should be the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Too bad they couldn't have done it (for the sake of the daughter) years ago.

Yes very touching, and in 25 years she will give away her daughter/son with a step mom in the pic... more than 50% of marriages end in divorce
