Nicole Kopsidas's July 2021 wedding ceremony was stuffed with touching moments; however, one clip of her brother walking her down the aisle as their dad waited up front sparked emotional reactions from TikTok users.

According to the National MS Society, the illness had an impact on the brain and spinal cord, which could cause unpredictable symptoms including memory loss, numbness, blindness, or paralysis.
For Kopsidas's father, his condition worsened as the years went by. Because he lived with quadriplegia, his parents and children cared for him.
Despite his condition, the bride wanted her father to accompany her to the altar. So, after she got engaged, she began looking for ways to make it possible.
During the planning phase of the wedding ceremony, Kopsidas confessed that she considered several ways that her father could walk her down the aisle. However, she did not want him to be uncomfortable.
Describing the priceless moment, Kopsidas mentioned that everyone was moved to tears.
In addition, the lady's father wished to see his daughter stroll down the aisle, so she was determined to ask her little brother to do the honors as an alternative. She told Insider that her brother had always been the baby of the house, so walking with him down the aisle was special.

Although Kopsidas's father could not understand that clips from the ceremony had gone viral on TikTok because he could not use social media, he was aware that many people had seen it and were moved. The newlywed woman told Insider:
"I knew that I would get a lot of attention from our family and friends because it is really special, and everyone loves my dad and has supported him, but I didn't think it would be seen by millions."
Now, she is focused on welcoming a baby with her husband and helping her grandparents look after her dad since they have no professional help.
