Celebrate with this groom and his flower-loving, wheelchair-rocking bride

Let's talk about how lovely and glowy and stunning Kelly and Bart's Netherlands wedding is, shall we? First of all, there's the friggin light in their apartment while Kelly got ready for the day.

I have great respect and love for some of the people who've told me these things, but I think they're wrong. This is exactly why I won't be hiding my disability on my wedding day.
