A Special Ed Teacher Had All of Her Students in Her Wedding, and the Pictures are Everything


Honestly, I love looking at regular wedding pictures. But these? Slayed me. Not only are they gorgeous, with all of the expected frills and flowers and a glowing bride, but add these thrilled and gleeful students, and well…you’ll see.

Kentucky teacher (and bride!) Kinsey French is enjoying her first year teaching at Christian Academy Rock Creek. All of her students have Down Syndrome. When it came time to choose a bridal party for the big day, Kinsey and her fiancee Josh knew they just had to include her kids. They all agreed to be flower girls and groomsmen.

“They were like family to me,” she told 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.”

For their part, the kids had a great time (in addition to looking adorable) at the festivities. They particularly loved the mashed potatoes and showing off all the latest dance moves – including the dab and the whip and nae-nae.

I feel like Kinsey is as big a winner as the kids, because she has these gorgeous, sweet photos to look at for the rest of her life.
