Rohling was left paralyzed from the waist down after a motorbike accident, so he was certain that his dream of that special first dance will never come true. But his family came to rescue and gifted him the magical moment that later became a worldwide sensation.
So when the moment came, the couple performed a few choreographed movements and Zanuni, in her stunning wedding dress, set on her beloved’s lap.
But then, to the surprise of the guests, the groom’s brother and father walked over and helped him to his feet so he could dance with his new wife face to face. Zanuni gently places her head on his chest, and the lovebirds rock gently as the Sam Smith's ballad Make it To Me played on the background.
The moving movement was captured by a guest and shared on social media. Since then, it has become an Internet sensation viewed by over 4 million people across the world. Watch the touching video below.
