Dying Father Sees His 11 Year-Old Down The Aisle
April 2, 2014
Knowing that he wouldn't be there for her wedding, a terminally ill father walked his 11-year-old down the 'aisle' years early with the pastor sweetly pronouncing them 'daddy and daughter'.
The tear-jerking event was staged by photographer Lindsey Villatoro, who heard about the Zetz's heartbreaking story and decided to do something special for their final days together.
"You see about 4 days before this event I contacted Grace and asked her what she thought about having a mini wedding for Josie. She mentioned she was so emotional about her dad not being there for memories down the line so I figured we would make some now. I told her mother I was coming over with a dress from Macy's, dinner for some close friends and I'd do her makeup. Well low and behold I actually had a FULL blown wedding up my sleeve. Not to mention the press was even there. I planned every detail with my rock star team that had NO IDEA they were even helping. From the hair and makeup, to her designer dress that was drove to me that morning from LA fashion week, flowers, a vintage set, an evening totally catered, his suit, a ring for goodness sakes, a pastor, gifts and the best dessert table ever! Grace told me Josie said the following morning, "It was the BEST day of her life." - Lindsey Villatoro
