Father Daughter Dance

For those of you that were not at the wedding I thought we would share this. This was my daddy daughter dance. My dad wrote about it and put it on youtube.

Here are dads words:

April 10, 2010, Oklahoma City. My awesome and beautiful daughter married a great guy on this day. She and I had planned on doing a funny, unexpected daddy-daughter dance for years. I picked out all the songs and the section of each. My (now) son-in-law did the mash up on his computer. We choreographed it together and practiced for about a week before the wedding. It was GREAT!!! What a memory!

What you don't know is that my daughter's best friend in high school, her bridesmaid, was tragically killed in a one car accident 92 days before the wedding. Julia was a truly amazing girl. It was a tremendous loss for all of us. She absolutely LOVED Lady Gaga and her music. So, the last two song clips, Poker Face and Bad Romance, are a tribute to Julia. Lady Gaga will never read this or see the video, but she definitely lost one of her very best Little Monsters on January 8, 2010.


  1. I didn't know your dad was such a HAM! I love his choice in music--Dancing Queen, Jesse's Girl, Journey, Come on Eileen...Awesome. I wish I could have been there to see it in person. This video is going to be such a cool memory for your to keep forever.

  2. Mom and I just watched this and looked up at each other when it was done and both had tears in our eyes. Love you all to pieces!!
