Witnessing two people in love starting their life together and saying ‘I do’ is always a delight.
As expected, when they attended the wedding of US Marine Corps sergeant Joshua Newville and Senior Airman Emily Leehan, the guests were looking forward to having a great time, but little did they know that they would witness one of the most memorable scenes there are.
When Leehan started reading her vows, she had prepared some for her stepson Gage as well. The sweet little boy was over the moon seeing his daddy getting married, and it was obvious he not only approved of his future mom, but he was truly happy with his father’s choice.
As his little eyes starred at Leehan, she turned to Gage and started reading her vows to him.
Her speech was so touching that everyone in attendance went ‘awww.’ There were tears of joy on most of the people’s faces, but it was Gage’s sweet reaction that stole the show.
As he kept listening to his stepmother’s words, he broke down in flood of tears and wrapped his arms around her.
“I want you to be safe, and to try your hardest and to be a good person,” Leehan said. She then said, “Don’t cry baby,” because she noticed that the emotional moment was too much for that child to bear.
“The last thing thing I hope you learn is that you are a special boy,” Leehan went on to say. “You are so extremely smart, handsome, and kind to others. You have helped shape me into the woman that I am today and I may not have given you the gift of life, but life surely gave me the gift of you.”
After collecting their emotions, the couple proceeded sharing their vows.
Right after the memorable ceremony, the newlyweds were reported to have remained on active-duty immediately. They postponed their honeymoon because they both had to return to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
