A wedding is always an emotional ceremony when the groom takes his new bride home, but this groom not only made it official with his wife, but also with his two new daughters.
Heartwarming footage of the moment the groom and his new daughters, whom he surprised at the altar for adoption, are bringing smiles to the faces of people around the world.
The wedding took place on August 13 at the San Marino Club in Troy, Michigan, when Dontes surprised the girls. The thoughtful groom came up with the idea earlier this year while talking to his now-wife Michelle Burton, 26.
So Dontes decided to offer to make his stepdaughters his children while they were still young, and what better place to do it than at his own wedding.
So when he finished saying his vows to Michelle, Dontes made an additional request that melted his and his girls’ hearts. He says he’s grown very close to the girls over the years, and he sees them as “daddy’s girls” because he says yes to more of their requests than he does to mom.
