On their wedding day, a wheelchair-bound bride surprised her groom by walking down the aisle

“For this moment today, I wanted to do something I had always dreamed of,” Chelsie, the bride, said in her wedding vows.

Chelsea Hill, a 29-year-old woman paralyzed from the waist down, surprised her husband, Jay Bloomfield, by walking down the aisle on their wedding day.

“Chelsie Hill, who is paralyzed from the waist down and uses a wheelchair, tied the knot with Jay Bloomfield on Sept. 24. But before they exchanged vows, Hill, 29, took Bloomfield, 34, completely by surprise when she stood up to walk down the aisle,” wrote PEOPLE.

Hill became permanently disabled in 2010 after being involved in a terrible car accident when she was 17, and she has been confined to a wheelchair ever since.

“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. That was just really something really important to me personally,” she added.

After her accident, the Los Angeles native did not give up on life; instead, she became a boss woman, founding a dance team for all people who navigate life in a wheelchair.

Chelsie met Jay for the first time in 2014 and fell in love with him right away.

“He loves me with all my strengths and weaknesses. He is the sweetest person I’ve ever met,” she said.

“My whole life, I had imagined standing eye to eye with my husband on my wedding day. After my accident, I wasn’t sure if I would ever find someone who truly loved all of me.”

“But Jay accepted me fully, honored me, and adored all parts of me.”

Hill, 29, decided to surprise Jay on their wedding day, despite knowing that Jay disliked ‘surprises.’

“The couple’s wedding was at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach and was planned by The Wife of the Party,” The Insider wrote.

Hill used leg braces and a walker to fulfill her dream on her wedding day.

“Additionally, her custom Galia Lahav wedding dress featured a removable skirt to make the transition easier.”

She claimed that she planned the entire wedding so that Bloomfield faced the aisle with his back to her.

“His jaw dropped as soon as I saw him,” she told the outlet.

“He was just in shock that I was walking because he had no idea.”

The Insider also reported that Hill’s wedding photographer filmed her entrance and captured Jay’s reaction on TikTok.

“I just felt like that whole time our souls were locked in on each other. “

I didn’t notice anyone else around me. I just happened to see him.”

Rolletes’ founder and CEO also decided to include properly choreographed dances in her event.

 “She and her dad shocked guests with a dance choreographed by Phil Wright, and Hill and other professional dancers performed a number choreographed by Brinn Nicole for Bloomfield,” Per Insider.

“That was so amazing,” she said about the dance performances. “I love that no matter how hectic my life can feel, Jay will always make me feel like I have time to still stop and smell the flowers.”

Chelsea is also a wheelchair user advocate who uses social media to spread positivity and raise awareness. Her Instagram account has over 208K followers.
