LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — A groom’s touching vows to his 5-year-old stepdaughter at his wedding ceremony are going viral.

Mike Seldon and Brittany Williams were married on Oct. 28. The wedding was beautiful, but what Seldon said to his stepdaughter Heidi stole the day.

“I vow to always be fair and honest with you,” he said. “I promise to support you in every way I can. I promise to always hold your hand and brush your hair when you ask me to. I promise to tuck you into bed every night. I vow to show you how a man should treat a woman through my relationship with your mom. And above all else, I vow to protect you, care for you, and love you ‘so big’ forever.”

Seldon has been a part of Heidi’s life since she was 14 months old, according to the Huffington Post. Even though she was protective at first, Williams said she quickly realized how much he cared for her daughter.

In 2015, the two got engaged and moved in together, propelling Seldon into more of a fatherly role.

“Mike was taking a more fatherly role by doing things like tucking her in and kissing her as he leaves for work,” Brittany told HuffPost. “Though we have had our share of bumps in the road ― there’s no instruction manual for this stuff! ― it’s been a beautiful journey because we’ve all been patient, open and honest with each other. And most of all just had fun.”
