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.

Both the bride and groom in this Australian wedding have been traveling to popular and picturesque Lake Tinaroo since they were children—so it was a natural choice for their wedding location. The father-of-the-bride, who now lives on the lake, admitted he was going to be emotional during the ceremony from the get-go, says photographer Matthew Evans, and lifting his daughter's veil after walking her down the aisle was no exception.
