The teacher, Kinsey French, invited them to serve as ring bearers and flower girls. All of the students have Down syndrome.

“They did such a wonderful job,” French told InsideEdition.com.

Kinsey's husband, Josh, actually popped the question in front of the students. So, it made perfect sense to them in the wedding. 

“They already feel like family to me. I knew I wanted them there," Josh said. "I knew how important it was for Kinsey to have them there. It was a no-brainer for me.”

“Being able to have them [as] part of our special day was like the ultimate dream for me,” said French.
