Bride's father stops wedding so stepdad can walk her down the aisle, too

Weddings can be touchy subjects when parents of the bride and groom are no longer married to their child's other parent. 

It can be especially difficult when there are stepfamilies involved.

But one father found a way to not exclude, but include his daughter's step-father and few, if any, guests were left without a tear in their eye.

Brittany Peck was ready to be walked down the aisle by her father, WKYC reported. 

But right before they took the first step, Todd Bachman told the wedding photographer something special was going to happen and to be ready to capture the moment. 

That's when he left the bride at the back of the ceremony, and grabbed Brittany's step-father, Todd Cendrosky, telling him they were both going to escort their daughter to her groom, WKYC reported. 

"For me to thank him for all the years of helping raise our daughter wouldn't be enough. There's no better way to thank somebody than to assist me walking her down the aisle," Bachman said.

"He came and grabbed my hand, and said: 'You worked as hard as I have. You'll help us walk our daughter down the aisle.' I got weak in the knees and lost it. Nothing better in my life, the most impactful moment in my life," Cendrosky said.

Both dads, both named Todd, gave their daughter Brittany away.

They admit, blending two families hit some tough times over the past 14 years, but never imagined their happy ending would go viral with more than 12 million views, more than a million likes and nearly 475,000 shares of the original post. .
