Her parents had refused to attend her wedding because she was marrying a woman but her family managed to be there for her.
A wedding is an unforgettable moment for any individual. It is a day when people promise "forever" to their partners in front of their friends and families. Unfortunately, some people do not get the presence of their families at such a special event because they choose to follow their hearts. A study published in the Journal of Family Psychology revealed that 70% of the LGBTQIA+ community faces parental rejection.
These individuals often face separation from their parents because of choosing to love who they want. Megan also faced a similar predicament when she married the love of her life, Brittanny, but her parents refused to come due to their religious background. Fortunately, her siblings stepped up to the plate and gave Megan a father-daughter dance to remember. Megan's brother Zach Luke–who goes by @zach.luke on the platform–uploaded the whole dance on TikTok, which, in a matter of days, collected over 3 million views.
The video began with Megan and Brittany sharing their first dance as newlyweds. Both looked absolutely gorgeous and completely in love, dancing in each other's arms. As people began emptying the dance floor, Megan's siblings gave her a big surprise in the form of a "father-daughter dance." They chose "The Village" by Wrabel for the occasion. As explained in Genius, this song deals with the isolation queer community faces for choosing to live the way they want. It inspires them to continue on their journey, as the problem does not lie with them but with others who dismiss their identity.
Kelly, the eldest of the lot, was the first to pull in her little sister for the dance. After finishing her routine, she passed Megan on to Luke. During their dance, the whole hall erupted in applause. The next in line was Alex, their youngest brother. By this time, there was no dry eye in the venue. Everyone witnessing this emotional moment of solidarity and support could not hold back their tears. The last person in the sequence was Robin, Megan's new mother-in-law. Throughout the dance, they were in a heartfelt embrace with each other. It signified that she was going to be part of a family which welcomed her with open arms.
At the end of the video, Luke expressed his emotions by writing in the overlay text, "We are so proud of you Megan. You and Brittany are perfect for each other. Kelly, Alex, and I are so happy to have you as our sister." Also, the video reached Wrabel as well, who was elated to be part of such a meaningful moment. He congratulated the couple on their wedding.
The comment section could not hold back their emotions after seeing the beautiful dance. @dgot_game1 commended the siblings for being there for their sister and wrote, "Y'all, don't know how bad we need the VILLAGE when our parents 'don't agree.' Thank you for being there for your sister." Megan (@meganbaltus), also shared her thoughts on the gesture and commented, "I have the best siblings ever. Thank you guys so much for being there for me and giving me another great memory to look back on this incredible day."
