I didn’t write down my speech and I rambled through it but now that I’ve had time to put my thoughts down – and no one is staring at me – here’s what I meant to say in my Matron of Honor speech:
Hello everyone, I’m Sunny and I have the esteemed honor to serve Jaci as her Matron of Honor. I pulled some quotes from others who can better verbalize the incredible commitment we all witnessed on the beach this afternoon.
Mark 10:9 says “Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
Whether you’re here as part of Jaci or Brennan’s party, I’m sure each of you have stories about either or both of them that may or may not be appropriate to share. There’s no denying how perfect these two are for each other, and these stories only prove that.
Neil Diamond said “But I Look at the night and it don’t seem so lonely, We filled it up with only two. And when I hurt, Hurting runs off my shoulders. How can I hurt when I’m holding you? Sweet Caroline, Good times never seemed so good. I’d be inclined, To believe they never would”
Jaci and I had the amazing opportunity to sing that song at the top of our lungs in the grand stands in Boston while the Yanks were in town. We never turn down an opportunity to sing our favorite song.
Jaci and I were accidental roommates during my senior year at Tarleton. I don’t have childhood stories but for the last 10 years she has been my family. We’ve celebrated a lot of great times together, cried a lot of tears together and everything in between. When I met Brennan I knew he was going to be a great addition to our family. I can’t imagine doing life with anyone else.
I’ll close with one of my favorite RM Drake quotes:
“don’t think. it complicates things. just feel, and if it feels like home then follow its path.”
For as long as I can remember Jaci has been my family and her family is mine. We are all blessed to be here to support Brennan and Jaci on their big day and it’s my privilege to welcome each of you into the family. We love you guys, cheers!
Kenneth and I enjoyed every second of our week at Grand Palladium While Sands celebrating the happy couple. We spent almost all of our time at the swim up bar – shocking I know – and both sides of the wedding are now wonderfully intertwined as best friends.
Looking forward to celebrating with everyone again at the reception, lots of funny stories and memories to commemorate together again.
