This story will melt your heart.

Kinsey French is a special education teacher at Christian Academy’s Rock Creek campus in Louisville, Kentucky who provides speech and occupational therapy to countless students with Down syndrome and other special needs.

Her story went viral when her students got to take part in her proposal at the school and when she invited her entire class to later join her as part of her wedding party.

French told CNN, “When you’re working with students in that close a level you develop a special relationship, and I wanted them to be part of this special day.”

You can read more about her story along with seeing the adorable photos on CNN.com here. We applaud French for this as her students looked like they had an amazing time.
