A Filipino woman who was born with no legs in Cebu City, Philippines walked herself down the aisle on her wedding day instead of going with her initial plan to use her wheelchair.
Rosie Babor walked down the aisle on Monday towards her groom and boyfriend of three years, Mario Perez, balancing on her hip and right hand while holding a flower bouquet on her left, according to Daily Mail.
“I wanted everything to be perfect for my wedding, so I knew I had to walk down the aisle,” Babor, who wore a customized wedding dress, said via Newsflare. “It made the day so much more special, overcoming that small difficultly.”
Arvin Sumagang, one of Babor and Perez’s friends who also filmed and shared the video on Facebook, said they are happy the two can finally tie the knot. The couple had to make several cancellations and changes due to COVID-19 precautions. He also said he is happy for the bride as she fulfilled “every girl’s dream” of walking down the aisle.
“We are happy that the wedding was finally pushed through,” he said. “They had to cancel several plans because of the pandemic. Their story is inspiring and I am happy that they found each other.”
Babor and Perez were only allowed to invite a limited number of guests to their wedding, consisting only of family members and close friends.
