A Wichita school teacher who

to all 16 of her students, also included them in on her special day.

Ashley Hicks, a kindergarten teacher at Enterprise Elementary School, was married Sunday and had all but one student at the ceremony.

“We spend 8.5 hours of the day with them -- sometimes more with them,” Hicks said. “They become our family; we cry together, we laugh together, we celebrated together, we've picked each other up when we made mistakes, and so they're family to me, and so I just want them here to celebrate a wonderful moment.”

The student’s parents said they were happy to be a part of a moment like this.

Hicks said she had planned this back in February and asked the parents during parent teacher conferences.
