The bride and groom exchanged beautiful vows of love at the altar but what happened next was truly unexpected.
People spare no expense when they are getting married to the love of their lives. For their big day, they promise to love and cherish each other before their close family and friends in an emotional ceremony. While some go out of their way and make arrangements to make the day memorable, others keep it simple yet beautiful. Watching a pair exchanging these life-altering vows often leaves us, guests, in tears while filling out here with compassion and love. But for Jessica, these vows extended to her family as well and her partner Jefferson had a plan to include them in a meaningful way even on their special day.
They say it's the little thing that makes the deepest impacts on a person. And Jefferson's gesture, albeit simple, had a heartwarming meaning. As the two exchanged their marital vows, he turned towards one of his guests and did something that left not only Jessica but everyone present in the room in tears. The ceremony instantly became meaningful and joyous when Jefferson shared how much their love meant to him in the most unique way possible.
The Portuguese couple fell in love when they met each other and quickly decided to bind their relationship in the wonderful ties of marriage. When the day arrived, both were prepared with their vows that they had written down previously. They read out their sweet promises to each other and as the ceremony came to an end, the groom surprised Jessica by saying something that she would remember forever. He turned towards someone and said he loves her, leaving the bride in tears. It was Jessica's daughter who was standing right behind him.
Reading his speech, the man said he is not only going to share his life with Jessica but also with her 8-year-old daughter Giovanna. He vowed to love and care for the little girl as he would for his new bride. He then turned towards the girl and read out the list of things he would do for Giovanna as her dad and it is sure to make you bawl your eyes out! "If I could ask God anything, it would be to have you as my daughter. I would be the proudest father in the world to have such a beautiful, intelligent, and educated daughter like you," said Jefferson with tears in his eyes.
Giovanna, who can be seen in a video smiling at him with teary eyes, is then told that she would be loved and supported by her new father. "I also give you love, my love, to take care of you, to always protect you, and to not let anything bad happen to you," he told the girl. Following his speech, Giovanna can be seen taking the mic from her new dad and thanking him. She accepts him as her real dad and promises to always love him. At this point, there was not a single dry eye at the wedding as everyone broke down hearing the heartfelt promises. It was a rare occasion where we witnessed a pair exchanging vows of a lifetime with not only each other but also with their close loved ones. It's wonderful to see a person being so thoughtful towards not only his bride but also her child.
