This Father And Daughter’s Surprise Wedding Performance Is One For The Books

There are many wedding traditions that both bride and groom and wedding guests look forward to: the cutting of the cake, the bouquet toss, and the bride and groom’s first dance, to name a few. Traditionally, after dinner is served at a wedding reception, dancing ensues, usually kicked off by a few noteworthy dance pairings. Of course, the bride and groom have their first dance, as well as the mother of the groom with the groom, followed by the father of the bride and the bride.


Normally, these are very touching, emotional moments that often result in big smiles and teary eyes. Recent bride Mikayla Ellison Phillips and her father Nathan Ellison took to the floor during Mikayla’s wedding, and while their father-daughter dance definitely resulted in big smiles, any tears that resulted were tears of sheer joy.


The father-daughter duo start out their dance together as what appears to be a traditional, sweet slow dance. Seconds later, the music abruptly changes to MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This,” as the two whip out sunglasses, suddenly making it Hammertime! This kicks off a seriously impressive dance medley through some classic songs and dance moves. While a departure from the traditional father-daughter dance seen at weddings, it’s touching and adorable in its own way, and shows that no matter how grown up a girl gets, she’s never too grown up to be silly with her father!

We know weddings are supposed to be the “bride’s day,” and while both father and daughter are killing it on the dance floor, Dad definitely steals the show!
