Next thing you know, the father begins lip-syncing and signing to “I Loved Her First” by Heartland, and the bride put her hands on her face in complete astonishment.
Nicole herself is not deaf; however, as a language interpreter, this selfless act meant the world to her as one can see by her priceless reaction.
The bride started to cry and could not contain herself. Heavily breathing and hand on chest, it was clear that Nicole was in utter shock and feeling a variety of strong emotions. Even the groom was all smiles and had to wipe his eyes.
It turns out, Nicole’s father had been learning how to sign to “I Loved Her First” for the entire year Nicole was engaged, to give her the surprise of a lifetime.
The plan to surprise the bride on her wedding day was an absolute success! Since we’re honest here, the reactions from both the new husband and wife had me in tears myself.
The video posted of the sweet reception surprise has reached a whopping 26-million views and counting, and we can see why.
Even years after this heartfelt gift, Nicole admits she still cries when she replays the video.
