Likewise, the bride used sign language to exchange vows under the watchful gaze of their families. The wedding guests were also silent throughout the entire ceremony so not to disturb the couple.

“How sweet is this couple! Wishing you lots of happiness! Both the bride and groom looks so beautiful and handsome.”


A few netizens also took the opportunity to share similar experiences from when their own hearing-impaired siblings got married.

“Just like my sister! She now has two kids. Before she got married, many doubted that she will make it on her own, but she takes care of herself better than us.”

“Same! Both my sister and brother-in-law are disabled, and now they have a child.”

Even the bride’s sister wrote that the wedding was considered the most special in her family of 9 as her youngest sister was finally married.

Congratulations to the happy couple! Best wishes for a fun-filled future together.
