It was a very special day for bride Kinsey French, not just because it was her wedding but because she was able to share a major life moment with six of her very special students.
French is a special education teacher at Christian Academy’s Rock Creek campus in Louisville, Kentucky. When it came time to plan her wedding, she knew she wanted to have her students, who all have Down Syndrome, involved.
“They were like family to me. 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,” French said.
The students told WLKY News that their favorite parts of the big day included the food (“mashed potatoes!”) and the dancing. French’s students took to the dance floor to show off their dance moves, including the dab and the whip and the nae-nae.
“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,” French said.
