Apologies in advance guys. Because you’re probably about to cry.

Yesterday, we were sent this gorgeous wedding film by the lovely Jarrett + Heather of First and Foremost Productions and within a couple of seconds of pressing play, we were reaching for the tissues!

Because not only is it a beautiful Washington wedding, with pretty details, sweet speeches and lots of love, but it also contains the most touching wedding vows ever.

Not between a husband and wife, but from a father to his new daughter. (We’re welling up again at the thought of it!)

‘You make me a better person, and I promise to always love you, protect you, treat you with respect, and most importantly, love you as my own.’

Scroll down for the full film, (and more gorgeous pictures by Nikki Closser Photography), but first up, we’ll let Jarrett + Heather of First and Foremost Productions tell you a little more about the the story behind it…

From the Filmmaker

This film highlights a beautiful couple and a gorgeously executed day, but most importantly it captures a new family joining together in the most precious way.

Our bride Macy has a 10-year-old daughter named Lia (who walked her down the aisle!), and her groom Ryan wrote the sweetest vows that he read to Lia during the ceremony.

Their wedding film captures his promises to his new daughter and you can see their obvious connection in the ways they interact throughout the day. It has us tearing up every time we watch it.

Stunning bride, Macy gives us a few words on her favourite moments from her and Ryan’s big day…

From the Bride

There are so many! However, two of them stuck out more than the others. 

First of all, walking down the aisle with my daughter was one of the sweetest moments I’ve ever experienced.  She was so excited and we both could not stop smiling! 

To see the look on Ryan’s face when we met him at the alter was a moment I will never forget.  We chose not to do a first look and I am so grateful that we waited!!  

Secondly, after all the thought and hard work that went into planning our big day, our favorite part was watching all of our friends and family truly enjoying themselves…

Everyone was laughing, dancing, and eating their hearts out!  It was really amazing to see it all happening before us.

Witnessing our two families becoming one was such an emotional experience and we just wanted to soak it all in.  As we sat there eating our dinner and looking out to everyone who came to celebrate US, we realized it doesn’t get much better than that! We couldn’t stop saying how lucky we are.

Are you crying yet? Us too! Again.

What a beautiful wedding, what a special family, and how cool is Ryan? I just love his sweet reading for Lia too, such an incredible keepsake for Lia when she grows up too.

Thanks so much to Macy, Ryan, Lia, and of course First and Foremost Productions for sharing it with us.
