I wish I had my grandfather around to walk me down the aisle.
As does Fu Xuawei, a 25-year-old entrepreneur from Chengdu, China. Unfortunately, her grandfather fell seriously ill last year due to which he might not survive to see his beloved granddaughter getting married. It has been his everlasting dream to see his little girl in a wedding dress as Fu has been living with him and her grandmother ever since the divorce of her parents when she was just 10.
That being the case, miss Fu decided on a little something. Well, not exactly “little,” but it sure was something. She arranged for a wedding photoshoot to give her granddad some part of his dream. Yes, that is correct. She wore an enchanting white wedding gown just to dress up as a bride and got the $475 (3000 yuan) photoshoot done for her 87-year-old grandfather.
The most interesting part of this is that there was no groom present. That’s right! A wedding photo shoot without any groom. That’s because she has no immediate plans of getting married in the near future.
Fu’s grandfather fell ill last September, and the doctors gave them no hope of his survival. So she kept this plan confidential and took her grandfather for a regular check-up only to reveal later that they would be taking some photos together. But he had something else coming his way. Something very exceptional.
Miss Xuawei shared her memorable experience online, and it is spreading like wildfire. Take a look.
This is Fu Xuawei from China. She is 25 and an entrepreneur.
Her parents got divorced when she was only 10 and ever since she has been living with her grandparents.
As her grandparents have raised fu, she is quite close to them and is insistent on taking care of them herself.
Sadly, her grandfather has been extremely unwell since last September.
It has always been his dream to see his granddaughter in a wedding dress.
So Fu undertook it that she fulfills her sick grandpa’s wish, worried that he might not be around long enough to walk her down the aisle and watch her getting married.
And so she planned a wedding photo-shoot for her grandfather to see her dressed up as a bride.
She wore a beautiful white wedding dress for the shoot in spite of no groom existing.
Miss Fu Xuawei hugged her grandfather as they walked down the aisle.
Even though the whole arrangement was a complete surprise, her grandfather looked crisp and dashing in his suits.
After knowing about her grandfather’s illness, Miss Fu’s perspective on life completely changed. She wants to revere every moment spent together. Below is the photo of the church where they did the shoot.
Even though her grandfather might not live to see the special day, Fu got a tattoo of her grandfather apart from the bridal photos to treasure their undying memories.
I had my grandfather’s portrait tattooed on my arm in January because I want my new friends and my children to be able to know what he looks like in the future
