It takes a special kind of person to be a teacher – someone with a lot of patience and love. Many of those special teachers say that they come to love their students like family.
That being said, it’s absolutely how one exceptional teacher is to her students. She loves them so much, and she is quite loved by her students just the same! Luckily, her fiancé knew that her students meant a lot to her. So he organized something in secret – a tribute that would be performed during their wedding ceremony.
Liz, an instructor at a theater and dance place known as the Jaykays Dance Company, located in Warwickshire, United Kingdom, got a little upset upon realizing that her man, Ollie, was trying to delay their wedding ceremony. Of course, every bride wants their wedding day to go as planned, so it is understandable. Little did Liz know that she was in for a special surprise.
Before the big day, her students were beyond thrilled to hear the news that her longtime boyfriend had popped the big question to Liz. They were eager to celebrate with the two of them!
In the video, the couple can be seen standing at the altar preparing to say their vows. Suddenly, an odd commotion is heard at the back of the church. Ollie then turns Liz around and told her to look up towards the balcony to show her what was happening.
When she did, she knew that it was worth the delay. Liz was stunned to see all of her amazing students on the best day of her life. You can tell it meant the world to her!
Unbeknownst to Liz, Ollie had teamed up with Jaykays Dance Company and her musical theater students to rehearse a tear-jerking rendition of “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. “The children were amazing at keeping the surprise a secret!” the photographer wrote upon sharing the video on YouTube. The footage has immediately gone viral, getting millions of views from people all over the world.
