The Magic of Photoshop Lets Sick Dad Attend Sons Wedding — After the Fact (PHOTOS)

What's a bridesmaids photo without the father of the groom in a racing hat?

It’s right up there among the worst nightmare of any couple getting married: A parent becoming too sick to attend the big event at the last minute

It’s what happened to Brian Shoop right before his wedding when his dad suddenly fell ill, rendering him unable to be present at the wedding of Brian to bride Andrea.

But instead of wallowing in the sad turn of events, his family took charge. Brian’s sister used Photoshop to insert images of their dad in the wedding afterwards so it was as if he had been there. Well, a if he had been there wearing a sombrero, lounging in a kiddie pool, and brandishing a fishing pole.

See how one family turned their wedding misfortune into hilarious photographic memories:
