One of the most important moments in any girls life, is on her wedding day when she gets to have her dance with her dad. There is something about that moment that will forever bring tears to on-looking eyes, and especially in the moment that went viral between Rachel Wolf and her father. In September of 2011, Rachel’s father, Dr. James Wolf, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. For the past two years he has undergone extensive treatment, and is coming up on the end of his battle.
Although Rachel is not even engaged, she knows that when that day comes, she would forever regret not having that special moment with her dad. So, she decided to surprise him with a faux wedding so they could have their last dance and when the day comes, she can play that video. “It meant more to him than I ever thought it would,” Rachel explained to ABC News. “The joy that I saw in his face when he saw me was amazing.”
While the video has gone viral, Rachel has explained that she does not want to watch it until her actual wedding day. In the event that her father would not physically make it to one of the biggest moments in her life, for her, now he still can be. “I was completely taken aback,” Dr. Wolf explained. “It was a special idea to remember her father at her wedding day.” Although his interview was brief, a lot of his energy was drained from the dance, but it can be seen on his face in the video that he has never seen his daughter look so beautiful.
