A paralyzed bride surprised her husband in the most heartwarming way when she decided to walk down the aisle at her wedding…

Walking down the aisle is a momentous occasion for any bride on their wedding day, and one that Chelsie Hill never thought would be possible…

Twenty-nine-year-old Hill became paralyzed back in 2010, due to a drunk driving incident during her senior year of high school.

Since then, she has gone on to do some incredible things, but by far her biggest accomplishment was at her wedding to her now-husband Jay Bloomfield this year…

Hill has been with thirty-four-year-old Bloomfield since 2014, and has always dreamed that one day she would be able to walk down the aisle…

Their wedding took place at Huntington Beach and Hill decided she wasn’t going to let anything stop her from living out her dreams. She set her heart on planning one big detail of the wedding.

Despite Bloomfield’s apparent “hate” for surprises, she was going ahead with the biggest of them all. Instead of using her wheelchair, Hill was determined to walk down the aisle.

“I want to stress that there’s nothing wrong with sitting down in your chair,” Hill told Insider. “But for me growing up, I always imagined myself walking down the aisle.”

“And I just wanted to feel that — not that my disability has taken anything away from me — but I just wanted to feel that heart to heart and stand up there eye to eye with him,” she added. “That was just really something really important to me personally.”

Hill arranged to have leg braces and a walker to enable her to walk down the aisle with the help of her dad.

“As soon as I saw Jay, his jaw dropped,” Hill said. “He was just in shock that I was walking because he had no idea,” she added.

“I just felt like that whole time our souls were locked in on each other,” Hill said. “I didn’t see anybody else around me. I just saw him.”

Hill also told the outlet that walking down the aisle was the highlight of the day for her, and by the looks of Bloomfield’s reaction, it was his too…

Thankfully, their wedding photographer, Asha Bailey, made a TikTok capturing the wholesome moment Bloomfield saw Hill…

Hill shared her vows to Bloomfield on Instagram, writing: “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.” 

“For this moment today, I wanted to do something I had always dreamed of. Stand eye to eye with you as we promise our lives to each other,” she continued.

Hill also went on to use her leg braces for the first dance with Bloomfield, and it’s safe to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
