A Brazilian engineer named Jose Victor moved his wife to tears when he invited her students with Down 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 as 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 were shy 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.
In less romantic and more hilarious Briefly.co.za news, a Chinese woman made headlines after bringing 23 members of her family on a blind date to test her lover. According to the Daily Mail Online, the unknown woman tagged along with her large clan to the romantic occasion without informing her date in advance.
After enjoying the meal, the man decided to teach the woman a lesson and fled away after receiving the bill which amounted to R49k (£2,3k). According to a report by a Chinese newspaper, Taizhou Evening News, the anonymous woman went on a blind date with a 29-year-old man identified as Liu in eastern Chinese province Zhejiang.
Reports indicate that the date was organised by Liu's mother, who was worried about her son who had been single for long. The man had offered to pay for the meal with the thought that it would be a romantic dinner for two but he got surprised.
