An Evansville wedding was more than a celebration of two people's love for each other. It was a special reunion.

Michael Nunning and his new wife Sarah got married at the West Side Library Park on Saturday.

Michael and Sarah knew their wedding day would be a special one, not only because of their love for each other but also because of the love between seven brothers.

The groom and his groomsmen are all Marine Corp Veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"To me, it was an honor to be requested as a groomsman by my squad leader," said Julian Sanchez. "Nunning was my squad leader in Afghanistan."

After the ceremony, the local chapter of the Rolling Thunder escorted the wedding party into Downtown Evansville where they later had a memorial service.

The service honored those who could not be at Michael and Sarah's wedding.
