Terminally Ill Father Walks His 11-Year Old Daughter Down The Aisle

(PCM) Be sure you grab a box of tissues before watching the absolutely heart-breaking video of a terminally ill father walking his 11-year daughter down the aisle.

62-year old Jim Zetz has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and knowing that he would not survive long enough to see his 11-year old daughter Josie get married, he was able to make that dream a reality by walking her down the aisle during a mock wedding ceremony.

The beautiful and heart-wrenching ceremony took place in the backyard of the Zetz’s family home in Murietta, CA and the family pastor presided over the ceremony, pronouncing Zetz and his daughter “daddy and daughter”.

The wedding idea was conceived when photographer Lindsey Villatoro was hired by the family to photograph one of their very last family portraits. Villatoro rounded up the help of all of her vendors to donate everything needed for the ceremony in less that 72 hours, no easy feat!  The vendors were able to rally together and donate everything such as Josie’s wedding dress, the cake, flowers, hair and make-up and food.

Villatoro filmed the wedding ceremony and posted the video titled “Walk Me Down The Aisle Daddy” online and it almost instantly has become a viral sensation. It was amazing to see the community pull together to make a family’s dream come true and it is something that young Josie will always cherish as she is growing up!

Two Couples Wed At The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival

Bacon-festival1(PCM) Recently, two couples were able to share both their love for each other and their love of bacon when they both had their wedding ceremonies at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival in Des Moines, Iowa.

Tricia Snider and Tom Watson were the first couple to wed at the festival on Saturday and then Craig Rouch and April Davila said their “I do’s” at the very same festival a little while later. 

The ceremonies were officiated by former Big Brother contestant and host of the Travel Channel show “Bacon Paradise” Adam Poch. Poch, himself, had a bacon themed wedding and jumped at the opportunity to unite more bacon lovers into wedded bliss.

The couples wed in a bacon themed chapel that overlooked a floor full of vendor below who were selling various types of bacon-filled food. The brides carried bacon rose bouquets and guests were able to nosh on bacon-wrapped pork loins. The couples vows even hilarious added the line to stay together “in good times and bacon”, but other than that addition the ceremony was kept fairly traditional.
