Planning a wedding is like having a second full-time job, one that often spills into overtime. You do what you can to make every detail count but sometimes you just run out of time. With the clock ticking, you have to decide on what aspects you want to focus on the most. For some brides, it's the food. For others, it's the theme.
For Holly Wolff of Olmsted Falls, Ohio, it was the father-daughter dance. A father and daughter will usually spend a few days selecting the perfect song. Some popular ones include Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight" and Temptations' "My Girl." Adele's "Make You Feel My Love" is also high on the list. But Wolff and her father, Rick Harnsberger, decided on a whole series of songs to accompany a surprise routine.

It isn't just emotional for the bride and her father but also for the guests at the wedding. Daddy's little girl will be moving onto a new part of her life.
Ohio bride Holly Wolff and her father Rick Harnsberger wanted to surprise wedding guests with one of the most epic father-daughter dances ever. They performed at her wedding reception on Oct. 1, 2016.
There's nothing wrong with the standard slow dance — it's special as is — but it's always a treat when people put in an extra effort for their guests.
Everything appeared normal as the duo began slow dancing to the Celine Dion classic “Because You Loved Me."
Guests watched the adorable bride slow dance with her daddy dearest. Suddenly, the beat changed to The Jackson 5's “I Want You Back.” The pair broke then out of their waltz stance. Rick pulled some serious moves that prove he’s got more jive than the average dad.
The audience fell in love with what they saw; they laughed and applauded throughout the performance.
"He’s danced with me before at my old dance studio and as you can see, he’s pretty good at it," she added.
But the highlight of the performance came when Rick channeled his inner Justin Timberlake with the *NSYNC hit song "Bye Bye Bye."
Everyone else was surprised and delighted, which was exactly what the father-daughter pair wanted. We loved their song choices!
Their performance was not only entertaining, it was also very heartwarming. Most importantly, it was a great opportunity for Holly and Rick to bond.
