Welcome and thank you all for joining us today on my daughter’s special day. I am sure you can all agree it has been a beautiful celebration so far. It is an honor to be here and see so many of you who have come from near and far to join us.
My daughter has grown into a beautiful, smart, and strong woman. Her love for life is contagious and I am so proud of her. As a young girl she dreamed of her wedding day and it is so wonderful to see it come to fruition.
I am also so thankful for her partner who has been a part of our family for years. They have been through many experiences together and have been there for each other through thick and thin. They are perfect together and I am grateful they have found one another.
I would like to take this moment to offer some words of advice to the newlyweds. Love one another deeply and stay true to yourself. Remember to show each other kindness and always stay humble. Cherish each other and never take your love for granted.
I have watched my daughter learn and grow throughout her life and I have witnessed her strength, courage, and determination. Congratulations to you both on this new journey and a lifetime of happiness.
To my daughter and her new husband, I raise my glass and offer a toast. Here’s to a future full of love, joy, and laughter.
