Of Dads and Love and a Wedding Golf Cart - at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary
The handsome man you see sitting inside this tricked out golf cart is the very proud and happy dad of a bride I married yesterday. Ally and Glenn were married at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary and Ally’s dad is the golf pro there. I was able to linger a bit after the wedding before having to go to another commitment and while sitting in my car, getting all my files ready for the next wedding, I looked up and saw Ally’s dad heading across the parking lot with a camera hanging from his shoulder. I thought that odd since the cocktail hour was still going on inside but figured maybe the photo-taking had moved outside and he was heading over with is own camera to get some nice shots. A few minutes later I heard a honk and looked up to see Mr. Conner, with a HUGE smile on his face, sitting in this beautifully decorated cart in front of my car.
It turned out that he had planned all along to surprise the happy couple with a decorated cart for after the wedding and he had even done the flower decorations himself. One of his artistic staff had made the sign for him, which included pink peonies to match the peonies Ally had carried in her bouquet. Ally and Glenn knew nothing of this wonderful surprise and what luck that I had not yet left so I could share this happy moment with him as he drove his amazing get-away car up to the door of the Club for the newlyweds to find later. I would have loved to have seen the looks on their faces when they saw it. They must have been so touched.
Weddings are generally put together by the ladies in the families and the grooms and other male family members tend to take a back seat, letting the ladies lead. But that doesn’t mean the dads aren’t every bit as proud of their sons and daughters who are marrying as the mothers. Often dads add much more than just their wallets and best wishes to the festivities. Many provide a special touch of their own to let their children know how much they love them and Mr. Conner’s sweet surprise is a perfect example of that love in action. The love one sees at weddings will warm your heart forever.
Let’s hear it for all the dads out there who steadfastly support their families from the background. I am so glad I was able to share in the joy this dad took in creating something very special for his daughter and her new husband on their wedding day.
