Kirk Franklin’s oldest daughter, Carrington got married over the weekend to her boyfriend of over 5 years Maxx Nakwaasah. And this is what we know so far about the private nuptials that were held in Dallas, Texas.
The Losing My Religion singer walked daughter, Carrington (she looked amazing) down the aisle, and officiated the wedding as well.
Kirk posted the following message to his social media account, just hours before he walked Carrignton down the aisle.
“She’s getting married today…..and I’ve spent an hour and a half rewriting this. Crying, smiling, and preparing to let go, ….of my little girl. I will walk her down the isle, then I will officiate the wedding. Why? Because I’m selfish, for my little girl. And she asked her daddy to! How could I say no?! I pray I don’t make a fool of myself and cry more than I speak.
God, it’s so hard to release her. If I could I would keep her a little girl, FOREVER. Selfish, I know. But at this moment, I want to be. I want to go go- kart riding, jet skiing, middle school basketball games, movies over and over again….just me and her. This is hard as Hell. She has no idea, cause she’s not a daddy. I am. A proud one. I hope I was a good one. I’m sorry for that one spanking you got that killed me more than it did you! I’m proud and love your future husband. Jealous, but proud. He comes first now. I’ll have to get use to that, cause I’m selfish, for you.
Only pictures get stuck in time, not people. They grow, and need to be let go…. I’m going to try really hard,…but please, when I see you with your new life, let me hold you every now and then, and pretend….that I’m never letting go. Forever daddy’s girl.”
A girl’s daddy.
The photographer captured this beautiful moment with Kirk and his beautiful wife Tammy Franklin after the ceremony.
But it was the awesome father/daughter dance that has us all saying “Come thru Kirk and Carrington!”
Kirk get’s the coolest dad award for sure!
