Here’s a wedding story that will touch blended families everywhere.

When it was time for Father of The Bride, Todd Bachman, to walk his daughter, Brittany, down the aisle, he sprang a wonderful surprise.

He told wedding photographer Delia Blackburn to be on her toes, he was about to do something wonderful.

Bachman sure delivered!

WKYC reports that Bachman walked up to his daughter’s stepdad, Todd Cendrosky, and told him it was time to walk THEIR daughter down the aisle.

I love this story because in our own Modern Family, we have a made a conscious decision. We have no “step,” “half,” “kinda sorta” labels.

We are simply family.

When we got married in 2012, I asked the parents of my husband’s late first wife to be my in-laws. Two sets of in-laws for one marriage? Talk about a deal!

Is it perfect?

Absolutely not.

But I believe so much of this is a choice.

I wrote about my father-in-law in this column, “The Man Who Has No Business Loving Me.”

What choices do you make in your family? I’d love to hear.
