A wedding celebration is one of the few things in life that brings everyone together-a place that truly connects. There is power in this connection whether it is re-uniting with long distance relatives or forging new core memories with those we hold dear. At Marissa & Jon's Edgewood wedding, the connections were so thick, you could cut them with a knife. The sheer joy was palpable. Every guest in attendance loved Marissa & Jon beyond words and some guests just couldn't contain their excitement for Marissa & Jon's new journey together as husband and wife. The party was in full swing when Tara spotted Jon in this sweet moment with his proud uncle on the dance floor. There is no denying the love & pride in the way Jon's head is cradled in his uncle's hug. Moments like this are the real magic of a wedding celebration-the power of a non-verbal gesture that binds us a human beings.
