Watch the heart-warming moment a bride surprises her husband, family by signing her wedding vows

Weddings are always an emotional time – but one bride has left everyone in tears with her sweet surprise gesture.

Bride Kelsey Kulick wanted to honour her new mother and father-in-law – who are both deaf – during her wedding to their son and make sure that they felt included during the special day.

So with the help of an aunty, Kelsey secretly learned how to recite her vows in sign language and surprised not only her husband but left his parents feeling overwhelmed with joy.

"It took me a second to really realise that she was actually signing her vows," Kelsey’s husband Michael told Good Morning America.

"All my emotions caught up to me at once, and I just couldn’t contain myself."

"I surprised him and his family, and my family. Nobody knew about it," Kelsey added, revealing that she memories the signs by watching a video Michael’s aunty – who also knows sign language - had made for her.

"My parents thought it was super sweet," Michael says. "They kept going on and on and on about how special Kelsey was and how special the moment was for them."

The beautiful moment was captured by the newlyweds’ videographer and the clip quickly went viral after he shared it on social media.
