Man With Down Syndrome Asked to Be Bride's Ring Security

A bride and her friend with Down syndrome have warmed hearts after she assigned him to be the "ring security" at her wedding. Chelsea Barton Kelly said that she and husband Hayden knew her friend Ian Terry would be perfect for the task, and so they planned a surprise to ask him to do them the honor. After Chelsea, 32, from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, had received a firm "Yes" from Ian, 35, they headed off to get him fitted for a suit to go with his specially-made t-shirt, outlining is ring-bearing duties. Ian and Chelsea have known each other for five years, having met a World Down Syndrome Day celebration, at RISE Center, in Tuscaloosa. Since that moment, the two have remained close, and each year on March 21 (3/21), they celebrate how unique the triplication of the 21st chromosome is, which causes Down syndrome. On Chelsea and Hayden's wedding day, on September 25, 2021, the couple said they were filled with emotion about how much pride Ian took in his duties.
