Happily Ever After

March 22, 2008 is the day that I, in no uncertain terms, got married to the most beautiful girl in the world. I raised my voice and spoke from the diaphragm so she would know that I was serious. I still have a hard time convincing her how beautiful she is, but then again that may be to my advantage, as she has decided to stick around with a guy like me. I was told that the ceremony was beautiful, and the reception was a blast. I’ve gotten a lot of requests for the slideshow I prepared for the reception as well as my speech, which are above and below this post respectively. More pictures will be posted as soon they get back from the photographer.

Welcome to the Happiest day of my life. It may be cliche for me to say that, but I’ve found that cliches have a basis in a very unique truth. It took me over a year to muster the courage to talk to Sara after I first saw her in my Beat Poetry class in University. I had no idea it would take me this far. Now, not only am I married to the woman of my dreams, I can celebrate with people I care about. I want to thank all the guests for taking the time to share in our special day. If we can impart just a fraction of the joy Sara and I are feeling right now, our day is just that much better.
Thanks also goes to the wedding party those of you who helped us stay organized and some of you who have come hundreds of miles just to participate.
I also want to thank Dan and Doug for keeping us entertained, as well as Auntie Colleen who baked us such a wonderful, wonderful wedding cake.
Finally I want to thank both sets of parents. My own for making sure I had a clean shirt and good manners in order to get me to this point. And to Sara’s for raising such a beautiful, intelligent and caring daughter, whom I thank God for every day I am with her. If a man’s gratitude is the measure of his blessings, then I am truly blessed today. I love you all, God bless.
