In Tear-Jerker News: Dying Dad walks 11-Year-Old Daughter Down the Aisle


This story may be one of the sweetest stories I’ve heard all year. When photographer Lindsey Villatoro learned that a father with stage four cancer wouldn’t survive long enough to walk his 11 year old daughter down the aisle on her wedding day, she decided to create the moment early.


Lindsey Villatoro is the owner of Love Song Photography, where she offers photography sessions for terminally-ill clients. After conducting a photo-shoot for the Metz family, Lindsey decided that she wanted to make Josie Metz’s last birthday with her father Jim a memorable one. With the help of many vendors in the community and her website readers, Villatoro was able to get flowers, desserts, a promise ring, and dress for the deserving little girl.
