Teacher Invited Down Syndrome Children To Her Wedding

Kinsey French, a special education teacher from Kentucky, not only got engaged in front of her whole class, but also invited her students, all with Down Syndrome, to the ceremony. On June 3rd the whole class from Christian Academy Rock Creek became flower girls and ring bearers and led their teacher down the aisle.

“They were like family to me,” French told WLKY. “They were my first class and they’ve been my only class and so I knew I couldn’t have a special day without them.”

Later, the students told that their favorite parts were the food and the dancing. Take a look at the adorable photos below.
