Surgery Doesn’t Stop Couple’s Wedding Day

Jonathan Peak and Nicole Veil didn’t let surgery stand in the way of their nuptials. The couple got married at the UConn Health Center in Farmington just a week after Jonathan had major surgery to remove a mass in his lung. When Jonathan’s surgeon, Dr. Daniel Fusco, learned Jonathan wanted to get married, he made sure the wedding became a reality with numerous Health Center staff pitching in to make it a special day. Jonathan’s doctors and nurses were among those attending the exchange of wedding vows in the hospital chapel and reception afterward complete with decorations, hors d’oeuvres and a wedding cake crafted by the Health Center’s chef. Watch the video to see Jonathan and Nicole’s celebration.
