On a beautiful surprise for their big day. The 29 yearold woman who was brought up in Pacific Grove had chosen that she would walk down the aisle with the help of leg braces and a Walker. I have stood up before with leg braces.
I have walked around with them, but nothing like a long dress on and not being able to see my legs. So I had to practice for about six months with the leg braces to know that I could stand there and walk with my eyes forward and not fall at the ground the whole time. The wedding happened in the high out Regency Huntington Beach Hotel, California, but she got nervous about going through with her plan because it rained before the ceremony. She was worried that the carpet she had to walk down was wet and would certainly feel different from the one she was used to. Chelsea was concerned that the walk wouldn’t go as practiced.
However, she decided to stick to her plan because she was determined the Californian would not let the bad weather ruin her big day. What happened next was mindblowing.

I remember looking at him and he was like, you got this he gave me so much energy. She said. It is safe to say that these two lovebirds were made for each other. The professional dancer only had her eyes set on her groom and she wasn’t aware of what was happening around her. She didn’t notice the entire hotel balconies were full of people standing there and applauding in awe.
Chelsea States that walking down the aisle was one of her favorite moments of her life. I just felt like the whole time our souls were locked in on each other. I didn’t see anybody else around me. I just saw him. Her vows read, after my accident, I wasn’t sure if I would ever find someone who truly loved all of me.
You have accepted me, fully honored me and adored all the parts of me. Isn’t that beautiful? She hopes that a wedding tale shows that love is love. Chelsea believes love is not biased against what one likes or how one talks. And you can’t help but agree with her.
