Couple having their first dance.

Jacque and Chris eloped at 18, missing out on their own first dance. But their little girl was determined to rewrite history on her big day. And so, with family and friends as witnesses, Zoe made a tender announcement.

“As some of you may or may not know, my parents ran away when they were 18 and got married in secret,” Zoe said. “They never got their own first dance. So, we would like to give that to you guys as a thank you for always being there for us.”

Jacque is then led to the dance floor, finally getting her first dance after 25 years of marriage. This bride’s wedding surprise not only fulfilled a dream for her parents but also created a memory that everyone present will cherish forever.
