LOUISVILLE, Ky. – When a Kentucky special education teacher got married on June 3, she invited a group of students to be part of her special day.

Kinsey French teaches at Christian Academy’s Providence School, designed for children with Down syndrome.

“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 told WLKY.

The students are in a regular classroom for 95 percent of the day, and they receive speech and occupational therapy.

Many of the students told WLKY that the best part of French’s wedding was the dancing.

French said having her students attend her wedding 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,” she told WLKY.
