Man’s Heartfelt And Tear-Filed Speech To Stepson On Wedding Day

Man’s Heartfelt And Tear-Filed Speech To Stepson On Wedding Day

A man became overwhelmed with emotion, shedding tears on his wedding day as he was giving a speech and making promises to his stepson. 

A wedding is a beautiful ceremony in which two people make a life-long commitment to one another in front of family and friends. While a wedding is about the two people standing at the altar exchanging vows, it’s about more than that. More people are involved in and impacted by a wedding. A wedding is essentially the combining of two families. 

A man about to get married was not only gaining a wife but also a stepson. A clip posted on YouTube shows the man, Eldridge Buchannan, addressing 7-year-old Kayden. He speaks directly to the young man, making a series of vows and promises to him. 

“So, I vow to you from this day forward that I’m going to love you, I’m going to teach you, I’m going to guide you and I’m going to pour into you because you are a king, " Eldridge says with tears in his eyes. “And you my king.”

Eldridge also promised Kayden that he would show him what it means to be someone of integrity, to be a leader and what “it looks like for a man to love a woman.” 

That tear-jerking moment was the result of a last-minute decision, according to Eldridge. He says that he decided to address Kayden only minutes before he was scheduled to make his way to the altar.

Additionally, Eldridge says that on the way to school, he has a series of talks and discussions with young Kayden.

“You know, we have a lot of talks on the way to school every morning about leadership and about integrity and respect and things of that nature,” Eldridge said. 

Eldridge obviously cares a tremendous amount for Kayden and is willing to put in the time, effort and care that it takes to teach a little boy what it means to be a man. 

Ephesians 6:4 “And, you fathers, do not make your children angry: but give them training in the teaching and fear of the Lord.”
