A Beautiful Open Letter To Newly Wed Mr & Mrs Tom

These last two weekends were filled with so much excitement as I witness when two of my friends promised to spend the rest of their lives together, and I couldn’t be happier. More importantly getting the privilege to stand right beside them as they took the vows 🙂 But in the midst of the chaos of the wedding prep and actual ceremony, I don’t think I was able to fully express everything I was feeling these weekends. So without further ado…

To the happy couple Mr & Mrs. Tom,

First, congratulations once again! I don’t think I have ever been so happy for anyone. You are the finest & rare couple in the best way. I could see the love between you two from the day I met both of you and every day since. You make me want to be a better person and a better girlfriend, and I honestly think the friends that make you want to be better are the best kind of friends.

Throughout this wedding planning process, you and your families have always treated me like I was a part of the family, and it warms my heart to be included in that way. I was honored to be invited to witness your lives become one, and it was a privilege to help you prepare for your special day indirectly and directly. Seeing the love you share come together in front of all the people you love was truly breathtaking.

Now to the one and only groom. The highlight of the whole ceremony, at least for me, was seeing your reaction when you first saw her. I know you were telling people to look at her, but I couldn’t help but watch you reacting to your beautiful bride. In that moment you showed us all just how deep your love is, and it moved me to tears. You have always welcomed me with open arms and even on your day, you took the time to see how I was doing. You made sure that everyone felt being in the right place at the right time and it was a pleasure to know that true love really exist no matter how long you wait, if it’s your it will always come back ( From St.Anthony Days hehe hehe) And even though it was your day you made sure everyone felt like it was their day… Lucky for you I wasn’t drinking as I watched those beautiful drinks pouring down other people’s kidney and mine kept wondering what’s wrong with me hahaha hahaha. You are probably the most incredibly selfless person I have ever met. I am so thankful to have met you and that we have grown to be families.

To our princess (bride): Wow! I know I have seen you in many different outfits but hey on your wedding,  you were stunning no word can describe how beautiful you looked on that day. You are the most beautiful bride I have ever seen, I thank the universe that you were brought into my life. I’m not sure if you believe in fate, but I think it was meant to be that TK decided to adopt me and become the one and only manager hahaha! I only wish I could have half of your grace and beauty. Just knowing you brings me so much happiness, and you are an amazing human being that deserves the best in the world, and I believe you have found it in your husband too. I hope he fills your days with unbelievable happiness. Marriage won’t be easy, but I know you will work through all the difficulties. You are a strong woman and my role model in so many ways. God made you extra special and made your husband especially for you! I am so excited to watch you both grow into the next power couple, like Nathan and Haley, Chuck and Blair, William and Kate. Your infectious spirit filled the room from the moment you came in and reminded us all just how lucky we are to know you.

To the most vibrant and elegant bridesmaids: Thank you for being you. I love how fierce, independent and sassy you are. You are the hardest worker I know and a friend to everyone you meet. I love being able to reminisce with you about everything and anything. You have taught me what friendship is as well as created a family in me that is cherishable beyond words.  You have such an old beautiful souls and wisdom beyond your years. You are my role model and everything I hope to be someday. I love you girls, more than you’ll ever know. I want nothing more than perfect lives for each one of you. As we get older, I can’t wait to see where life takes us.

Now before you, all get tired of reading let me wind up with back to now Mr & Mrs Tom

You both inspire me on a daily basis, both as individuals and as a couple. The love you have for each other radiates and spreads to everyone around you. I don’t know what I did to deserve such amazing friends, but I am so grateful to have both of you in my life. I only wish we had met sooner! I wish I could keep you both to myself, but it would be unfair to take the magic you bring to the world and keep it just for me. I want so much for you in life. You both deserve the world, and if I could give it to you, I would (but I know you are too humble to accept it). I hope you know that even though you have each other, I am always here for you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.

Thank you for including me in your day and in your hearts. I am so proud for both of you and I am so excited to have witnessed your special day.
