Kaley West's father David Jean West passed away in 2015, and the young woman - the only girl in a family of 6 siblings - was particularly close to her father.

Kaley felt her loss even more deeply as she planned her wedding to Andy Young in 2018.

Kaley knew that her dream of dancing with her father at her wedding could never come true. Or could it?

Her 5 brothers decided to make a plan and their sweet surprise was posted on Facebook/WSYXABC6 and has garnered over 16 million views.

“I know people joke about having an out-of-body experience but that is what it truly was being in the middle of the ballroom and surrounded by my family, and my husband’s family, and our friends and people we care about with my brothers stepping up. It was an incredible moment.”

5 BROTHERS DECIDED TO BRING HER FATHER TO THE WEDDING IN THE ONLY WAY POSSIBLE

Kevin, Dustin, Danny, Derek, and Kasey West remembered that David had spent a lot of time videotaping every family event, and decided to go through the footage, looking for suitable voice snippets.
