By Lannan M. O’Brien

While the couple may be the star of their wedding day, their “I dos” involve many more people beside themselves. From that day forward, their families, friends and loved ones are linked as one– so why not celebrate it? Here are some clever ways that real couples have honored those connections using photos of the special people in their lives.
