Bride Surprises Blind Fiancé With Tactile Wedding Dress
Weddings are invariably special occasions. Not just for the couple, but for two whole families. There are no expenses spared, and there are a lot of dreams fulfilled. But the wedding we’re about to depict here, was a whole league apart.
When Kelly Anne Ferraro got married to the love of her life, paralympian Anthony Ferraro, many were moved to tears; among them was the groom. But why did that happen? Well, you see, Ferraro is blind and has only seen Kelly in his imagination! So, to make him feel special and help him experience the joy of getting married to a beautiful bride, Kelly decided to pick a gorgeous tactile embroidery gown for her wedding day, that had textured cotton flowers and lace custom-made, so that her husband could touch and feel the embroidery and picture how she really looks. Yep, we can almost hear you go aww…!
We don’t know about you, but in our opinion, she wins the title of the “Best Bride of 2021” hands down!
What was the groom’s expression like?
Anthony may be blind, but he is an inspiration in himself. FYI, he’s a paralympian in judo, a motivational speaker, and a musician.
When interviewed on the occasion of his wedding, Anthony told USA Today that Kelly has always been an extremely important part of his life. In fact, she’s his eyes to the world. But what she did on the wedding day was extremely special. The happy groom shared that his bride especially got her dress custom-made just so he could touch and feel the fabric. And needless to say, it meant everything to him!
Anthony carried on by saying that he could feel every inch and even the slightest details of Kelly’s dress, and he proudly stated, she looked absolutely gorgeous!
Like every other bride, Kelly too was super excited for her wedding day. She remembers the time when she was walking down the aisle and couldn’t hold her excitement to make Anthony touch her dress. Kelly recalls that the entire time she was whispering to him “touch the dress,” and it made her super happy that her idea worked. Anthony could feel every single detail of the dress and enjoyed it as much as she did.
The thought behind the wedding dress
The inspiration behind Kelly’s wedding outfit was taken from an attire that she wore on her first date with Anthony. It was at the time when they attended his documentary premiere in New York, A Shot In The Dark, which is based on the story of his life. For the date, Kelly intentionally decided to wear a velvet dress so that her then-boyfriend could touch and feel the fabric. This sentiment and the thought behind this practice rooted so deep in their relationship, that Kelly decided to incorporate the same idea for her wedding dress as well. She wanted to go for more touchable fabrics while selecting her gown at Loulette Bride in Brooklyn.
The moment of truth!
The few moments before Kelly joined Anthony at the altar were all butterflies for her. As for Anthony, he recalls that the moment she got next to him, she took his hands and put them around her dress. It was a mind-blowing and surreal moment, such a touching moment that he couldn’t hold back his tears. It helped him create an image of Kelly and how beautiful she was looking. In the end, all he could say was that his bride looked like an angel!
