This weekend we were so lucky to watch two wonderful people get married. Our dear friends, Don and Katie, had a beautiful wedding in Napa, and we couldn't be happier for them. We were both honored to be members of their bridal party and were touched that they would choose our artwork for their Save the Date.
With the weekend fast approaching, we often worried about whether or not we would be asked to make a speech, toasting the new Mr. & Mrs. Being the former event planner that I am, I had a little something planned...just in case. So here's a little bit of what the guests would have heard:
What a beautiful wedding to celebrate two beautiful people! Don and Katie are two of the most thoughtful and caring people I know and we have great memories with them. When Jason and I were moving up to San Francisco in 2012 they took us to brunch; it was the start of many great meals together, and they both know us so well. They know that Jason and I love to do everything together as a couple, from working together to design their Save the Date, to having us both be members of their bridal party. With that, I reflect upon the things that I know about them as a couple, aside from our shared love of food. I remember the first time Don introduced me to Katie right after they returned from studying abroad in Siena. If I remember correctly, Katie wore a Dior shirt and carried a Gucci handbag and I thought to myself, this girl likes really nice things. And, when I think of Don, I think about how he's always looking for some really cool tool or gadget to improve his life...or his man cave. So today, I think about how Katie has Don, who just might be the nicest guy in the world, and Don has Katie, the girl who will always be improving his life. They were truly MFEO! So, let us raise our glasses and toast to Don and Katie and being made for each other!
