The father of the 18-year old Vanessa Macedo was quite sad about the fact that he would not be able to see his daughter in her beautiful prom dress. As much as he would like to see his daughter in her dashing dress, Joaquin has to attend to his food truck business.

Vanessa’s prom night fell on a weekend, and for those in the food business, weekends are when the business is the busiest with a lot of customers. Having to perform a father’s duty to provide for the family, Joaquin resigned with the thought of seeing his daughter wearing her prom dress in pictures instead.

Fortunately for the doting and hardworking father, his thoughtful ‘güerita’ has a sweet plan in her mind.

 “I pretty much already knew [he wouldn’t see me] because of [my parents] just starting their business and weekends are the busiest,” Vanessa shared in one of her interviews.

“My little sister was actually the one that was texting me and calling me about him wanting to see him. I just told her that before my pictures, I’d go surprise him.”
