A 25-year-old made a beautiful bride, but it wasn't her wedding day.

Instead, it was her surprise birthday party!

Ricchina Drande's mother planned the wedding-themed birthday party for her daughter who has down syndrome.

She says she wanted Ricchina's birthday to be special. They had recently been to several weddings and Ricchina always asked when it would be her turn. Her mom says she would be upset for days, wondering why she wasn't a bride.

The celebration was complete with invitation, a DJ, a wedding cake and a photographer.

Ricchina says her wedding-themed birthday party made her feel very special.
