    A father walking his daughter down the aisle is a tradition usually reserved for the bride's biological father, and Cendrosky didn't expect to join Peck, according to WKYC. But that doesn't mean he didn't think about it.

    "(It) crossed my mind every time when we went and tried on tuxes," Cendrosky told the station.

    Bachman told WKYC he decided to do something special for Cendrosky as a gesture of thanks.

    "What better way to thank someone than to assist me walking our daughter down the aisle," Bachman said.
