Weddings are a happy event for everyone involved, but it is also an emotional day especially during moments like the exchanging of vows.
It is often difficult for couples to express all that needs to be said through traditional vows, so many are choosing to write their own unique promises. Recently, a bride decided that not only did she want to say vows to her groom, she wanted to do the same to another special person in her life.
Senior Airman Emily Leehan and US Marine Corps Sergeant Joshua Newville got married at Quincy Cellars in Ripley, New York with a beautiful ceremony that left no dry eyes in room. But, it was Newville's 4 year old son Gage's reaction at the altar that caught the attention of the world.
After saying her vows to her groom, Leehan proceeded to read a list of vows written specifically for her new stepson and the entire emotional exchange was caught on camera.
“I want you to be safe, and to try your hardest, and to be a good person,” Leehan told Gage. “I know that you and I will butt heads, but—” she continued, but was interrupted by Gage's adorable sobs.
“Buddy, it’s okay,” the youngster's father said in an attempt to calm him down, but his cries were uncontrollable.
"When she started reciting the vows, that's when the emotion took over and he lost it," Newville told ABC News. "The whole day was pretty emotional, so I was just trying to keep myself together and keep him together."
