A bride whose father died of a heart attack before her wedding chose an unusual partner to walk her down the aisle on her big day, and a video of the special moment has gone viral.

Jennifer Urs-Sullivan, a University of Miami football mega-fan, credits her late father with instilling a love for the game in her from early on. “He raised me to big the biggest football fan,” she told MyFoxTampaBay.com.

So for Urs-Sullivan, it only seemed fitting to have Sebastian the Ibis, the Hurricanes’ mascot, stand in for her father on her wedding.
