Nervous Bride Stares At Deaf Groom Across Aisle And He Loses It When She Lifts Her Arms To Sign

Elizabeth and Scott tied the knot on January 27, 2018, in Sydney, Australia. But before exchanging their vows, Elizabeth had a very special surprise for her unsuspecting groom.

The gorgeous bride stopped to take her place across from Scott at the opposite end of the aisle. Suddenly, Christina Perri’s hit song, “A Thousand Years,” began to play in front of their friends and family.

Scott had no clue what Elizabeth was about to do. You see, he began losing his hearing at 5 years old. By the time he was 8, he was deaf.

The pair met on Tinder two years ago, and Elizabeth was so in love that she quickly started to learn sign language.

According to, “More college students are now studying American Sign Language than Chinese and Russian combined. In 2009, ASL was the fourth-most popular language for college students to study, falling behind only Spanish, French, and German.”

Three months before their nuptials, Elizabeth — a mother of two — secretly taught herself the lyrics and sign language to their special song.

As soon as Scott realized what she was doing, he burst into tears. She says he has watched the video back at least 100 times.
