This is the adorable moment a daughter surprises her mum on her wedding day, with a stunning dance duet with her disabled sister.

It’s said that most wedding days go by in the blink of an eye, but this 12-year-old gave her mum, Shellie Lopes Boulanger, a surprise moment that is sure to last a lifetime.

Stepping into the center of the room in Foxborough, Massachusetts, USA, avid performer Angelina escorts her younger sister, Aubrey, who suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy, onto the dancefloor, in her delicately decorated wheelchair.

Beautifully pirouetting her way across the wooden floor, Angelina then spins rhythmically with her eight-year-old sister, providing her with her very own moment in the spotlight.

As choreographer Angelina kisses her sister on the hand, the duo’s heartfelt duet is met by with a wave of emotion by those watching on, leaving not a single dry eye in the room.

Shellie, who rushed to the stage to emotionally thank her daughters afterwards, said: “We were all completely blown away by this dance.

“It was after the mother and son dance, and the DJ said there was still one very special performance to come.

“I had absolutely no idea; they had been practicing it without me knowing.

“Everyone in the room was crying and were so touched.

“So many different people came up to me during the wedding and said it was one of the most special things they’d ever witnessed.

“It was just a very beautiful moment, I wish I could re-live it for the first time all over again.”
