This bride's emotional dance with her terminally ill father in a wheelchair gave us all the feels!

WARNING: This video will make you cry a tear or 5,000!

Let's face it, the dance between a bride and her father is always a sentimental moment.

But this father-daughter dance was particularly poignant.

Alabama bride, Mary Bourne Butts (née Roberts), was determined to share a dance with her father at her wedding, despite the fact he was diagnosed with an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer (called glioblastoma) which has left him in a wheelchair.

The three-minute clip, which has since gone viral, shows Mary guiding her father, Jim Roberts, around the dance floor in his wheelchair to Lee Ann Womack's 2000 hit, 'I Hope You Dance'.

The song has special meaning to the duo, as they used to "dance around the kitchen to this song" when she was a child.

After agreeing it would be the song they danced to at her future wedding, the lyrics took on new meaning in May 2017 after Jim was diagnosed with glioblastoma.

Mary told Fox News that her father said that the dance "meant so much."

"It was such a good thing to happen to him,” Tracy Roberts, the mother of the bride, told AL.com.

"He was overwhelmed with pride and the love he feels for her. It was a great day for him, a beautiful, perfect day for all of us."

The video had already been viewed over 420,000 times on Facebook and shared over 3,600 times.
