In a heartwarming gesture, Marielle (a tacher from the US) invited her class of around 20 kids to her wedding!
Marielle decided she wanted to show the kids how important each of them are by giving them a very important job... Walking her down the aisle!
'It was magical,' said Marielle. 'Having the children there was really special.'
'Everyone was crying when I came down the aisle but it wasn’t because of me, it was because all the kids were there.'
'Before the day I talked to the class about my wedding and they said, "Are you guys gonna kiss?"'...
'A few shielded their eyes at that moment, but it all went to plan. The girls managed not to drop the flowers and the boys walked down the aisle perfectly.'
'Teaching is my passion and I couldn’t have imagined it without them. They’re a part of who I am.'
'Marielle is an amazing teacher,' said Brooke Starnes, a mother of one of the students. 'She has created a community of all the families and is really changing the lives of the kids.'
