Late Dad’s Best Friend Walks Daughter Down The Aisle

Almost every bride dreams of that special moment when their dad will walk them down the aisle and give them away on their wedding day.

But Minnesota bride Allyson Eischens knew it was a moment she would unfortunately never get to experience since her dad passed away before her wedding. Allyson’s to be husband, Garrett Eischens, knew how upset she was about not having someone to give her away so he secretly started working to find a replacement.

Just before the wedding, Garrett had her dad’s best friend, Cris Roose, fly from his home in Florida and surprise her. “The kids closed my eyes… all of a sudden, I heard Chris say, ‘I heard somebody needs to be given away,” Allyson said. “I hadn’t even seen him yet but I knew it was his voice.”

“Our families were always hanging out together and after my dad passed away, I guess he kind of filled that spot as that person you can go to for anything and was always there,” Allyson said about Chris, who originally said he could attend the wedding because his wife had been in an accident and needed to be looked after.

“I thought I was going to be a total wreck walking down the aisle, but we made it,” Allyson said. “He grabbed my hand and squeezed my hand and said, ‘We got this.’”
