Here is the handout graphic and text:
I am the Father of the Bride.
I watched my daughter learn to walk and ride a bicycle. I bandaged scraped knees and let her cry on my shoulder when she was hurt. When she learned how to drive, I sat in the passenger seat while she drove around the county.
It was my responsibility to provide all that she needed. As I walk her down the aisle today, I will turn that job over to someone else. I am not losing my daughter today, but gaining a new member of my family.
Please pray with me that they will have a happy and joyous life together.
