There were many toasts/blessings at our wedding. It was awesome. I’m glad our family members were able to speak to us and they were so eloquent. There was never an awkward moment and we truly appreciate all that was said.
Greg and I were just handed our champagne flutes and we are enjoying them 🙂
Greg’s mother, Mary, welcoming everyone to the reception and telling us that Jay (his dad) was hoping to share a few words and a prayer with us
Jay had such a wonderful speech and a beautiful blessing prayer
Mom’s turn. She thanked everyone for coming and blessed us as well!
Josh’s best man speech. It was awesome. He definitely had some comic touches but was also touching!
Russ’s best man speech. Same thing with him – he was funny and also touching. We appreciated it!
Colin hadn’t originally planned to speak and didn’t prepare anything, but my mom insisted he talked, which ended up being awesome. He had some wonderful things to say, especially how the boys in our family weren’t outnumbered anymore!
Us enjoying the toasts
Christine’s maid of honor speech
She included my favorite quote from the Real Housewives of New Jersey: “Happy Wife, Happy Life!”
I really enjoyed every aspect of the toasts/blessings. We have such an incredible family and feel so blessed to have them come together to make one big happy family!
