My son and his wife just recently celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary. Because his wife already had two daughters from a previous marriage, the groom surprised everyone, including the bride, by asking her daughters to accept him as a bonus Dad in their lives, giving them each a ring as a symbol of his love and desire to be there to support them. The two daughters are the mini-bridesmaid in the white dress and the redheaded bridesmaid directly in opposite him in the picture below. There wasn't a dry eye in the church, including the bride. Poor girl was unprepared for that gesture and had to wipe away tears with her hand.
