Fifteen-year-old Hannah Schaus has Down syndrome, and her older sister, Ashley, has always shared a close bond with her. Ashley has already been preparing to take over as his sister's legal guardian one day when her parents are older.

When Ashley found a man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with, Hannah was part of the deal. Indiana citizen, Will Seaton, 25, did something heartwarming when he proposed to his future wife.

ASKING THE BIG QUESTION

Seaton dropped down on one knee and asked Hannah to be his "best friend forever." He used the sister's grandmother's ring to ask the special question before turning his attention to Ashley.

The young man then popped the big question and asked his girlfriend of seven years to be his wife. Ashley had joked to her fiancé before about marrying "two women at the same time," and in 2017, this became a reality.

PROTECTING HER LITTLE SISTER

Ashely was delighted that her future husband included her sister in this way. He didn't think twice about making her feel part of the significant milestone. She said:

“He definitely goes out of the way for her so this was more than I could ask for.”

Ashley always knew she would need to protect her little sister, and thanks to her caring fiancé, she was able to do just that. Seaton again incorporated his new sister-in-law into the procession on the big day and ensured she got time in the spotlight.

THE EXTRA-SPECIAL WEDDING VOWS

They called Hannah the "Best Sister" because she was more than just a bridesmaid. In a touching video, their marriage officiant asked Hannah and Seaton if they would be best friends forever, and both said, "I do."

Their unique rendition of marriage vows made the wedding extra special. Later, the pair danced to "Best Friend" by Harry Nilsson. Hannah also got to wear a lovely white dress for the occasion, and her sister said: "The happiness level is infinite."
