Being able to dance with our fathers or mothers at our weddings is something many of us might take for granted. Unfortunately for many brides and grooms, it's simply not possible, and Mary Bourne Roberts Butts was afraid she might never get the chance. Her father Jim was diagnosed with brain cancer last year, and he does not have much time left to live.

In a moment the family will remember forever, the professional ballerina and dance teacher choreographed a special dance with her dad, wheeling him around the dance floor, much to the tears and happiness of the crowd. Blue Room Photography also beautifully captured the occasion, and Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance" was truly the perfect accompaniment.
