Bride shares wedding with Down syndrome sister and groom makes it into the perfect day for both

They exchanged vows, to be best friends forever.

Seven years ago, Will Seaton met Ashley Seaton, and they fell in love.

When the two started dating Ashley had one fundamental rule, if Will wanted to date Ashley, he had to embrace her little sister, Hannah.

Hannah has Down syndrome and various health complications which makes 24-hour care necessary.

It turns out Will was more than happy with the rule, and the trio has been inseparable since that day.

When Will proposed to Ashley this year, he also proposed to Hannah. Will asked Ashley to be his wife, but asked Hannah to be his best friend for life, a proposal Hannah was all too willing to oblige.

There was no way they could have the wedding without Hannah being involved as well, so that's exactly what happened.

Hannah and Ashley both wore wedding dresses for the big day, and both women were read vows and shared a dance with Will.

In a short video of the big day (owned by SWNS) Will says he will be Hannah's best friend forever.“Hannah, I’m thankful you’re my sister and my best friend."

"You’re one in a million. I promise to always take you fishing, tell you plenty of funny jokes and most importantly, I promise to always look out for you and take care of you as a big brother."

Will also shared the first dance with both sisters. After Ashley and Will had their first dance, Hannah and will danced together to You've Got a Friend in Me by Michael Buble.

There is no doubt this family will be filled with love, forever.
