Man's Proposal Includes Sweet Surprise For Fiancé's Sister With Down Syndrome

Will Seaton met his fiance, Ashley Schaus, in 2010 at a car show. The two of them must’ve stood out to one another among the sea of concept cars and shiny “coming soon” vehicles, because they were immediately smitten with one another and almost immediately started dating. 

When they did, Ashley introduced Will to her family, specifically, Hannah, her sister  who lives with down syndrome. Ashley stressed first and foremost that if Will wanted to do anything with her, that Hannah came as part of a “package deal.” 

Ashley and Hannah have been inseparable since day one. Whether it’s sleepovers, going to the store together, visits to school, it doesn’t matter – Hannah and Ashley are doing it together. 

After years of dating, on March 8th, 2016 when Will decided to get down on one knee and ask Ashley to marry him, he naturally included Hannah in that proposal to be his BFF. 

Hannah will also have a huge role in Ashley’s wedding; in addition to being her sister’s bridesmaid, she’ll also be sharing vows with Will, too. 

She’s also going to have her own separate dance with Will to the tune of Harry Nilsson’s “Best Friend.” What could be more fitting than that? 

Hannah, who is 15, is super stoked to be named “Best Sister” at the wedding, a distinction that’s making Ashley teary-eyed: 

This wedding sounds like it’s gonna be lit. In the meantime, I’m gonna go dry off my ugly-cry-happy tears. (h/t fox 5)
