The speech was delivered by Doug Hunt, Father of the Bride, at Michelle and Greg's wedding. The pictures of Michelle and Greg are from the rehearsal wedding eve.
A few excerpts from the beautiful speech Doug wrote:
"As a guide to our bride and groom, I caution you that they are probably the smartest two people I know and the smarts, combined with their analytical minds, can be very entertaining.
A word to the wise, ask them mundane questions at your own risk.
I can only wonder at the depth of analysis that brought them to the conclusion that they would marry each other.
I first prescribe them lots of laughter. Michelle and Greg are pretty good at it. I love to see them light up when something strikes them funny. . . and then I ask them to explain it to me. It is a pleasure to see them having fun. . . a little mysterious and very playful. It's like watching monks dancing.
Second, i challenge them to have an attitude of gratitude. The two best things in your lives will be your love and friendship. Hold on to them dearly.
Now that you are officially a family, know that your only real purpose is to develop, enjoy, grow and encourage your best friend. Agree to give and take so both can know the joy of meaningful work, but never lose sight of your real purpose. I raise my glass to Greg and Michelle and wish them every blessing. May they meet their challenges. . . and earn, enjoy and share their rewards."
