For many teens, prom is supposed to be the greatest night of their lives.
And for many of their parents, being able to capture that moment on camera is just as important.
Vanessa Macedo’s dad wanted nothing more than to see his daughter off to prom in her dress.
But unfortunately, he had to work and couldn’t see her on prom day.
Vanessa’s sister texted her later in the day about how upset her dad was that he wouldn’t be there. So they decided to come up with a plan.
Two hours before prom, Vanessa went to see her dad at his fruit truck to surprise him.
“My sister and I planned on doing this literally like two hours beforehand, she was the one texting me that he was upset and he wanted to see me,” Vanessa tweeted.
When Vanessa opened the door to the fruit truck, her dad stood inside, speechless. The look on his face really did say it all.
“My dad was not expecting me to take time out of my day to surprise him so he was really happy to see me all dressed up,” she said.
Vanessa’s boyfriend caught the entire moment on video, and it is sure to melt your heart.
The video quickly went viral, and has since racked up over 215,000 likes and 39,000 retweets on Twitter.
“It was such an unforgettable moment for me,” Vanessa said.
We’re sure it was an equally memorable surprise for her dad as well, and it will definitely be one they both will cherish for years to come.
