My sister Becca + her man Matt were married this past Saturday in Houston, Texas. It was a whirlwind of a weekend—full of joy…and also a little drama (always the makings of any memorable party, right?).
Here’s the story:
Phew, what a weekend. Mostly wonderful, but a tiny bit awful. I’m sure we’ll laugh about the whole thing one day in the distant future.
Oh, and in closing: my Maid of Honor speech…it’s in the form of a cheesy poem because, for better or worse, that’s my love language to Becca (see this and this for further explanation).
I have a tradition with Becca of writing her silly birthday poems each year, and so I thought, what better way to celebrate Becca and Matt then with a little poetry?
So without further ado, the wedding poem:
Becca, we have made it,
It’s your wedding day;
And as your Maid of Honor,
I have some words to say.
I’m happy for you + Matt, He loves you like no other; And personally, I’m excited, To finally gain a brother.
From triathlons to country dancing, Y’alls adventures have not been light; And now as the new Maddox’s, I’m sure it will be dynamite.
So here’s to Becca and Matt, And the love that they do carry; On behalf of all here I will say: Thank God they’re finally married.
Ok, thank you for putting up with me and my cheesy poem. In all sincerity, Becca and Matt are two of my favorite people. We all love you so much and are excited for the many Maddox adventures ahead. Cheers to Matt and Becca!
