Viral video has WNY connection

RIPLEY, N.Y. - Have you seen this heartwarming story?  

U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Joshua Newville and Senior Airman Emily Leehan got married this past weekend in Western New York.  It wasn't so much the wedding itself that has everyone talking.  It was the special vows Leehan wrote for her soon-to-be stepson Gage during the ceremony.

“I was thinking ‘don’t cry’ and was just trying to comfort Gage," Sgt. Newville told the Today Show. "It truly means something when someone who has no involvement in creating Gage loves him as if she did. I was just very proud and happy and excited.”

The couple married in Ripley, NY at Quincy Cellars.
