A wedding is a ceremony that commits two people to each other. It is typically a celebration centered around love, hope for the future and commitment to one another no matter what happens in life.
Most people who get married want to share this event with the special people in their lives. Including special people in the celebration makes the event memorable.
Special people might play a certain role in the ceremony, such as carrying flowers or reading a passage from a religious text.
Those people might be family members, friends or even coworkers. They are part of the soon-to-be-wed person’s inner circle of loved ones. One teacher works with a group of students who are very close to her heart.
She wanted to make sure that they could celebrate her wedding. She did not want to just choose one or two of her students. Not wanting to leave any of them out, she invited all of her students to join her wedding party and serve as important members of the event. All of the woman’s students were able to be a part of her wedding day.
The girls donned pretty dresses and headbands of white flowers. The boys wore suits. Each child looked adorable. These students are in the teacher’s speech and occupational therapy classes at the Christian Academy school’s Rock Creek campus in Louisville, Kentucky. Each of the students in the class has Down syndrome. However, they are curious, loving and fun children who should not be defined by their disabilities.
The teacher has worked with her students for more than one year and gotten to know each of them well. The students and their parents and guardians were touched by the teacher’s gesture of inclusion. The teacher’s family was also thrilled by the inclusion of the youngsters in the wedding party. They will not forget the fact that the teacher has a kind heart and wanted her students to be able to join in on this beautiful event.
