It’s a familiar scene and one which plays out at countless weddings: after a long, emotional day, the bride takes center stage for the bride-and-father dance and is overcome, breaking down in tears as the music plays. However, thanks to her brother’s extraordinary gesture in the face of a devastating tragedy, one bride’s wedding dance not only had the rest of the guests reaching for the tissues but has melted the hearts of millions of YouTube viewers, too.
