When Kinsey French was planning her wedding, she knew it wouldn’t feel complete without six very special people being involved: her class.
French is a special education teacher at Christian Academy’s Providence School in Kentucky, and she truly seems devoted to her job. Not only did she invite her six students, who all have Down syndrome, to her wedding, — she put them in the ceremony as flower girls and ring bearers.
“They were like family to me,” the bride told local news station 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.” The photos are seriously adorable.
“It was so exciting, it was really special for Josh and myself just to have them a part of the day, and have them come with us and celebrate with us,” says French.
Just judging by all the beautiful pictures shot by Lang Liechhardt at the wedding, it’s clear that the kids were thrilled to be there for their teacher, too.
