Toddler with Down syndrome walking down wedding aisle melts hearts online

- This little boy with Down syndrome walking down the aisle at a loved one's wedding is capturing hearts online.

In a video posted to YouTube, Braden is seen making his way down the aisle to the surprise of teary-eyed wedding guests.

According to his mother, this is something Braden has had to work towards.

"Down Syndrome doesn't define my son, but it does create challenges that he works through every day," his mom, Jenny Mayer, said. "We do therapy at home once a week. We worked for months learning how to walk: something most parents take for granted, including me with my first two children."

Instead of being defined by his challenges, his mother adds that he'll instead be defined by the support of his family and friends.

"He walked down that aisle like he owned it!"
