“Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, singers of song.” – Pam Brown

With Father’s Day approaching, we wanted to look back on some of the touching father-daughter moments we’ve seen in weddings in Charlottesville’s wine country. Whether it is the first time a father sees his daughter on her wedding day, or the heartwarming father-daughter dance, photos that capture those funny, loving, tear-jerking and sentimental moments convey such beautiful parent-child relationships and are sure to be treasured for years to come. So, grab the tissues, and scroll on to see some beautifully captured moments.
