Bride Dances With Significant Men In Her Life For Dad-Daughter Dance Follow Father's Passing

A bride had a beautiful surprise for her wedding guests in the absence of her late father, inviting all the important men in her life onto the dancefloor for the traditional daddy-daugther dance. There was not a dry eye in the house when Melissa Gosano, 30, from Huntington Beach, California, danced with her husband, brother-in-law, and groomsmen on her big day. Melissa's father, Mark, a retried police officer, passed away on January 14, 2015, aged 67. Ahead of the wedding, Melissa said she thought of the musician Cole Swindell, who, before he signs "You Should Be Here" at concerts, explains how the track is for important people who are no longer with us. The song always makes Melissa a little emotional, and so she thought it would be the perfect way to honor her father at her wedding, dancing with the men who support her today. The wedding took place on March 3, 2023, at The Vintage Rose, in Orange County, with friends and family capturing the unique dance on video.
