Bride Whose Father Died Gets Unforgettable Surprise at Her Wedding (VIDEO)

andrea bride brother surprised her father daughter danceMaaaan, viral wedding videos are a dime a dozen these days. And everyone seems to think their First Dance, Mother/Son Dance, Father/Daughter Dance was The Best and is destined to be a YouTube sensation. (Even if it were dimly, drunkenly shot upright with an iPhone.) But every now and then, you find a video of a wedding dance that is heartachingly beautiful and tearjerking. That's probably the only way to describe this one that has been making the rounds online since July.

When bride Andrea's father died before he could walk her down the aisle, her brother decided to step in and prepare an amazing surprise for her. He recorded the song "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle and played it for Andrea as she danced with family and friends instead of her late dad. Better bust out the tissues, cuz it's about to get blubbery in here ...

So heart-wrenching ... That could not have been easy for Andrea. But how amazing is it that her brother did that for her? Just like the cake-cutting or the tossing of the bouquet, the father-daughter dance is one of those wedding traditions everyone looks forward to. And instead of trying to brush it under the rug, Andrea's brother created an incredible memory for his sister, the bride, and a beautiful tribute to their late father. It truly was an unforgettable surprise.
