For Jeni Stepien, a Pennsylvania woman, her wedding recently was an emotional affair.
She was walked down the aisle by the man who had received her father's heart through organ donation nearly a decade ago.
Jeni's father was murdered in 2006 and the recipient of his heart was Arthur Thomas, now 72, of Lawrenceville, New Jersey.
The thought of meeting Arthur only came to Jeni after she got engaged last year to her fiance Paul Maenner.
‚ÄúOne of my first thoughts in that following week was, ‚ÄėWho will walk me down the aisle?‚Äô‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúI was thinking, ‚ÄėOh, my gosh, it would be so incredible to have a physical piece of my father there‚Äô," she told The Telegraph.
She wrote to Arthur asking him to be part of her wedding day and he agreed to it.
Here's a touching and powerful video from her wedding.
