Akhil Jhaveri wanted to see his daughters get married before he dies.


Suffering from ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), Akhil was not sure he had enough time left on earth to see his daughters marry the love of their lives.

"We don't really know (how long he has), but they're saying it's any day," Corinne Jhaveri, one of his daughters was quoted as saying in a KVAL report.

Akhil's family devised a plan to fulfill his wish. It was an idea that didn't require a groom.


It would be a mock wedding and Akhil would walk each of his daughters down the aisle.

Less than a week after they came up with the idea, the mock wedding was held at Vintage Gardens, a wedding venue in Ridgefield, Washington.

Akhil's family got help from neighbors, who shelled out money to rent the venue, purchase flowers and gowns and others.

On the day of the wedding, Akhil found himself in his three daughters' company who walked down the aisle with a bouquet and in a white wedding dress.


The three women were all smiles. It felt like a real wedding. Akhil's wife, Laura, was emotional to see him witnessing the mock wedding.

Family and friends couldn't hold back their tears as they witnessed the bittersweet moment.

"We've had a lot of time to process the fact that he is going to pass away, and that it's going to be hard," said Jordan Jhaveri.

"It's been difficult to see my dad, who I remember as this vibrant, hilarious human, sleeping as we go down the aisle together," Ashley Jhaveri said.

Akhil, who has been battling ALS for seven years, is unable to talk or move on his own.

ALS is a group of rare neurological diseases that mainly involve the nerve cells responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement.
