As our salad course was served, our DJ, Rachel, called for our maid-of-honor and best-man speeches. I knew my sister was nervous as she had never done one of these before, but she nailed it—her speech was a perfect mix of humor and touching sentiment, and just the right length.
Note that it was written on a cocktail napkin. From OUR cocktail hour.
Then the best man spoke. His speech is a memory that will live on, as his “funny anecdote” was an amazing story about Benjamin trying to “reinvent himself” in college freshman year. The two of them went to both high school and university together, and when it came to his attention that Ben had been trying to drop his diminutive nickname and go by something more “manly,” the best man just about died. Naturally, Ben’s attempts were thwarted after that, and he was to remain nicknamed for life. Our guests exploded with (not unkind) laughter upon this reveal and to Ben’s credit, he took it all very graciously.

As I’m nearing the end of my time here on the ‘Bee, I can’t help but get a little sentimental and sad that our wedding day is over. Sheesh, Eel, it has only been six months since your wedding. Major eye roll.
While our wedding day wasn’t perfect and there were things in hindsight I wish didn’t happen or we could’ve changed, they in no way took away from the amount of happiness we felt on our wedding day. This may sound odd, but when I look at our pictures, I feel a little sad wishing we could go back and do it all over again.
On the other hand, I am so happy to have these pictures as I am able to relive each moment and even some of those that I may have missed.
