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

(by Maressa Brown January 31 at 6:57 PM via

Maaaan, 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.

SEE THE VIDEO HERE (don’t forget your tissue):

Robert Zuckerman…a Photographer’s photographer.



I remember it like it was just last week.

It was the summer/fall of my junior year of college, and I was just getting myself up and running as a freelance photographer. I think every creative soul has a point in where they jump body first into a craft that they love….that’s how I was. Even though my work looked like ‘who shot John on a Thursday night’, I was proud because I was finally getting the chance to do something I enjoyed doing. I was on YouTube daily and called around to every local camera store within 100 miles of my university because I wanted to learn, learn learn!! During that time, some of my closet friends traveled NY to try out for Diddy’s “Making His Band”. Needless to say they had a HUGE surprise for me when they got back home from auditions. My friend Greg told me of this ‘dope photographer’ they all…

It’s the Edwards Family!

This fall I had the pleasure of photographing the Edwards family! This, hands down, has had to be my favorite shoot of the season — talk about fun! In fact, they probably don’t know this, but if my future husband and I have a girl down the line, I’m going to name her after the two Edwards girls…..Rosalyn Camille ( Rosalyn Edwards and Camille Edwards).

During this shoot we laughed, we hopped, we ran, and enjoyed everything in between! With a father who is a firefighter and a mom that teaches everything under the sun; you know all three kids have a very happy life! Well enough of my blabbering…..check out a few of the photos!

Peace & Photos,
