A wedding is one of the most special days in any individual's life. It is the day a couple celebrates their love before their close ones. However, for Tessa Chavez, the day didn't go as planned. Till the last moment, she held hope for her father's arrival but her hope remained unfulfilled. Due to his religious beliefs, he refused to give Chavez his blessing on her wedding with Cyn Wang. Though the gap left by him can never be completed, the meaningful gesture made by Chavez's brothers left everyone emotional. The gesture posted by Wang on @cynandtessa shows how the brothers stepped in for the father-daughter dance with their sister so that she still feels enveloped in love despite their father's absence.

The siblings are all supportive of the relationship and have grown so close that even Wang considers them her siblings. In the caption she wrote, "When my father-in-law decided not to attend our wedding, our siblings stepped up." The video begins with Chavez and Wang walking down the aisle together. The love between them was evident in their eyes. Chavez gave a sweet kiss on Wang's hands as they were stepping in. Wang in the text overlay wrote how Chavez was feeling due to her father's absence, "My wife was devastated but she tried not to show it."

Thereafter the video shows Chavez enjoying a dance with her brother. Wang explained, "Instead of the father-daughter dance, her brothers stepped in for sibling dance." The first one was Guillermo. Both of them were as upbeat on the floor going with the beats. They were grooving with laughter, perfectly matching the spirit of the event. The next one was the little brother, Diego. Diego is not only a brother to Chavez but also her best friend. There was a playfulness in their dance, which perfectly encapsulated their relationship. The next portion had all three siblings enjoying their hearts out on the dance floor. The text overlay read, "It was beautiful and meant a lot to us." Chavez on her Instagram post expressed her feelings, "Best sibling dance I could ever dream!"

The ones that step up and fill that spot are the real MVPs! So happy you have her brothers. Congratulations again you guys, keep building your chosen fam." @yo.eri was really elated for Chavez and wrote, "Happy to see her surrounded with the love of her brothers." @janejanethisisjane commented on her thoughts about the father, "Having a daughter is a precious gift. I’ll never understand a parent who wouldn’t attend their daughter’s wedding."
