A young bride named Natalie Browning, found out that her grandpa had a stroke two weeks before her big day and would no longer be able to attend her wedding. So, August 1st she packed up her wedding dress and hopped on a flight from Virginia to Florida and flew 800 miles to see her 94-year-old grandfather Nelson May. She did her makeup while waiting at the airport and carried her dress in a pink garment bag until she got to Florida — she documented her whole trip in a Facebook video.

When she got to her grandpa's house she put on her wedding dress and shoes and shared a beautiful dance with him.

"For months he'd been so excited to dance with me on my wedding night and I'm just so happy that I was able to give him that experience," Browning told SWNS. "I don't get to see him very often so it truly was a special day."
Browning, who is a jeweler based in Virginia Beach, told Fox News she is grateful she had an opportunity to make her grandpa smile.
"I run a small jewelry business called Of Great Value that is centered around reminding people that they are deeply valuable," she said. "I've been trying to implement that belief more in my own life and wanted my grandpa to know that he is incredibly valuable to me, and even though he was unable to come to my wedding, that the dance he so desired to have with me was valuable too. So, we made it happen."

Someone pass the tissue... Browning married the love of her life, Cooper, this past June.
