When Katie Musser began dating now-husband Jeremy Musser in 2013, she soon found out that he had a newborn son, Landon, with his former girlfriend, Casey Bender. As is expected in a situation like that, things were a bit tense for all involved, but the trio eventually came together to raise Landon. Not only that, over time, Katie and Casey became actual friends - good ones.

On September 23, Katie walked down the aisle to marry Jeremy, and her vows were not only for her new husband, but also for Landon and Casey. I'm honestly getting a little teary-eyed over this.

Katie wrote on Facebook about the decision:

I wasn’t just going into a marriage with Jeremy and needed his trust and respect, but I needed Casey and Tyler’s too. One thing I promised was to be ONE family always. And I know without hesitation, we will never break that promise.

The video below of the actual vows is incredibly moving, especially because Katie addressing Casey and Landon was clearly an unexpected move.

“First I want to thank you for accepting me as your friend and allowing me to be a part of Landon’s life,” Katie said to Casey and her husband, Tyler. “I promise to be an amazing mother to your son. I will guide, teach, and love him every single day.”

Katie then spoke to Landon.

“I promise to stand by you, listen to you and love you every day,” she told the little boy. “I promise to love Daddy with all my heart. I promise to be a best friend to your mommy and your daddy Tyler. We will be one big family that I promise you will have for the rest of your life.”
