It's a day your Dad has been equally dreading and dreaming of—your walk down the aisle, your dance, your good-bye. Here, some of the most loving moments captured between brides and their fathers.

"The bride Tammy's father is a retired fireman and not the type you'd think would be overly emotional," says photographer Jody Sie of Better Together Photography, who captured this special moment. "He was trying so hard not to cry during the father-daughter dance. I caught him just as the first tear was about to fall." Tammy and her father danced to the song "I Loved Her First" by Heartland. "The bartender and I cried so much that we went through a whole stack of cocktail napkins during their first dance," says Sie. "I'm actually shocked I could see well enough through my tears to get this shot." Photo: Jody Sie of Better Together Photography
