- Cintia and Jose stood in front of their friends and family, ready to declare before the Lord that they were ready to love each other forever
- Moments before they exchanged their vows, smartly dressed kids with Down's syndrome walked in and some were holding colourful bouquets
- They were Cintia's students and Jose had invited them as a surprise
- Cintia broke into tears and hugged them all when they arrived at the altar
A Brazilian engineer named Jose Victor moved his wife to tears when he invited her students with Down’s syndrome to their wedding.
The groom had more tricks up his sleeve and proved his love for Cintia Pereira when he asked the learners to stand in as their ring bearers, Daily Mail reported.
Cintia, a speech therapist, was caught by surprise when she turned around and saw her students walking towards her.
They came in twos and were all dressed in the most magnificent official wear and princess-like gowns.
Immediately the emotional bride saw her kids, she burst into tears and hugged them one after the other.
The children were equally exhilarated to see their favourite teacher and they coiled in shyness when she reached out to greet them.
The whole thing was captured in a video that was later shared on Instagram and Twitter.
All the while, Cintia and Jose’s guests watched in awe as the whole event triggered the waterworks.
“It was very emotional because I asked the priest from the church we got married to let me have the kids I had in my practice, but he said that I could not. In reality, my husband had asked him to say that because he had already planned it with the priest,” Cintia said.
As previously reported by TUKO.co.ke, Gareth and Deana proved that true love knows no disabilities or sickness as they maintain their union for decades.
Gareth Tobias and Deana have been married for 27 years despite living with Down Syndrome. According to reports from Metro UK, Gareth and Deana met and fell in love with each other when they were 17 and 19.
The couple’s friendship later developed into a romantic relationship as they started considering getting married 10 years later, Metro reports.
The lovebirds eventually tied the knot on July 4, 1992, and they are still going strong 27 years later.
