Father-of-five Kelvin Peters was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer and given only months to live. When he got the news, the 46-year-old immediately thought about all the things he'd miss out on, namely his three daughters' weddings.
"I went through a period where I was mad, I was saying, 'Why me?' I've got my whole life. I want to live. I want to live and be here for my family," Kelvin told KTVB news in Idaho.
His eldest daughter, Kaitlin, 21, felt the same way. "I went to a wedding and broke down when the bride had a dance with her father," she shared. "So I just thought that maybe I could pull something together, for my little sisters and I."

With the help of Idaho Event Professionals, the venue, the girls' dresses, the photographer and the decorations were all donated to put on the faux-wedding.
"I know that I have a limited amount of time, and so I'm taking advantage of that," Kelvin said of the celebration.
On the big day, Kaitlin and her two sisters — Kendle, 15, and Isabella, 13 — each took turns sharing an emotional father-daughter dance.

Nate Peters, Kaitlin's brother, also made a heartfelt speech. "We cannot express our gratitude enough," he said on the windy fall day. "We are so thankful and so blessed, even in a time of trial to have so many people that are willing and able to help us."
When describing the moment she shared with her dad, Kaitlin said, "I don't think that brides should take this moment for granted. I think that it should be something that should be cherished."
