Prom night is a big deal for most high schoolers, but it was extra special for Hannah Schmid and Garrett Chaney. The long term couple both have serious disabilities and were crowned prom king and queen at their North Dakota high school on April 11.

Hannah has cerebral palsy and is non-verbal, while Garrett has a neurological disorder called Cohen's syndrome, which requires him to have help with everyday tasks such as eating and getting dressed. Although Hannah can't speak, Garrett gravitated towards her when they met more than 13 years ago, immediately sitting next to her.

Now, they spend almost every weekend together and take trips to the zoo, People reports of their romance. Both of their families were touched that their children were chosen as potential prom king and queen candidates by their classmates.

"The fact that they were nominated says so much about their high school," Hannah's mom Brenda says. "But we were speechless when they were crowned king and queen." What a heartwarming story...congratulations to Hannah and Garrett and their caring classmates!
