Bride's Wedding Tribute to Her Deaf Husband

This Bride's Emotional Tribute to Her Deaf Husband Proves That Nothing's Stronger Than Love

Liz Shoesmith, a bride from Australia, reduced her friends and family into a puddle of tears when she surprised her deaf husband by signing the lyrics to the song "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri right before walking down the aisle. And, of course, she totally knocked it out of the park — and looked gorgeous to boot.

"Even though Scott is deaf, I have never felt more heard in my life. For every joy he has brought into my life over the last two years, I wanted to surprise him with my entrance," Liz told Love What Matters. "I won't lie, I was terrified before walking into the ceremony. But the moment I locked eyes with him I never looked away and it was a special moment just between the two of us. He held it together for a few seconds before crying the whole way through the song. He has rewatched the video a hundred times since and he still cries every time!"
