Meet Jeni Stepien.

She tragically lost her father, Michael Stepien, when he was murdered outside of Pittsburgh in 2006.

Following his death, Michael's organs, including his heart were donated to Arthur Thomas, who had been waiting 16 years for a suitable donor. 

When it was time for Jeni to get married 10 year later, she was given the opportunity to be walked down the aisle by Stepien. 

In an emotional interview with a local CBS affiliate, Jeni said, "We've been talking to him and writing letters and calling and receiving flowers and sending gifts for the past 10 years and now it's finally here."

In a beautiful twist of fate, it meant Jeni still had her Father by her side on her wedding day.
