Sometimes the happiest time of your life can also be the most bittersweet.

Earlier this summer, Little Women: Terra’s Little Family star Terra Jolé and Joe Gnoffo tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in Chicago.

But the final weeks leading up to the wedding were extra emotional for the reality star, who lost her father, Richard Odmark, in October 2013.

“It’s really hard not having him here on a moment like my wedding and Penelope‘s birth and just life moments,” Jolé says in an exclusive clip from this week’s episode.

In a touching conversation with her brother Bourn, the new mom asks him to walk her down the aisle on her big day.

“I used to think, like, it would be weird to ask my dad like, ‘Should I cup his arm or should I hold his hand?’ ” Jolé says, speaking through tears. “Now it’s like, I can’t even ask him, but it’s nice having my brother there because even though he jokes all the time, he loves me, and he has been like a rock for me.”

Immediately agreeing to his new role at the wedding, Jolé’s brother gives her a few key pieces of advice: “Just don’t trip. You can’t fall and don’t wear any high heels!”
