After 65 Years, These New York Grandparents Finally Get Their First Dance [WATCH]
The only regret that my husband and I have about our wedding reception is that we didn't get to end the night with friends and family holding sparklers as we ended our evening with our first dance under the moon.
I will forever be grateful for those who made our wedding reception a possibility however, we didn’t have our dream first dance under the moon. As a matter of fact, we didn’t have a first dance at all. We have each other though and that's all that matters.
Another couple who never had the opportunity to share their first dance on their wedding day are Elaine and Morton. Elaine and Morton are Jewish and when they were married 65 years ago, Morton was grieving the loss of his mother.
In the Jewish faith, a period of mourning is called Shiva. When a person sits Shiva, they refrain from most activities for a period of seven days, and because he was sitting Shiva and out of respect, Morton did not dance on the day that he and Elaine were married.
Last month, 65 years after they exchanged vows, Elaine and Morton were in attendance at the wedding of their grandson Zachary Graff to Samantha Estepa. It was there that the couple finally got the opportunity to share their first dance after the bride and groom gave away their first dance to Zachary's grandparents.
You might want to grab some tissues because there is no doubt it will hit you right in the heart.
