When Brittany was 12, she dreamed of having a big wedding! Unfortunately, her little brother and father had been involved in a terrible car accident. Her little brother passed away and her dad, Paul, became paralyzed. Before the accident, Paul’s favorite thing to do was dance.

Paul was so terrified that he wouldn’t be able to do it and embarrass her father, but he reluctantly agreed, knowing how much it meant to her daughter.

When the wedding day finally came, everyone didn’t know what to expect…
