Behind the Image: Group Hug / by Brian Surguine

Weddings are an opportunity to celebrate a momentous life event, surrounded - in this case, quite literally - by friends and family. After the morning rehearsal, Callie, her bridesmaids, and both moms gathered to pray together before getting ready for the ceremony. This was taken right after, as Callie was enveloped in an outpouring of love and support. (I can't figure out how many people are hugging her.)
