“He struck me as somebody who knew exactly who is was and where he wanted to go in life. He rides motorcycles, his brother diffuses bombs, and oh yeah – Will saves lives for a living. If Sydney didn’t wanna date this guy, then I was gonna do it.”

Those beautiful words brought to you by the bride’s brother, who absolutely killed it officiating the ceremony. He told Sydney and Will’s story with sweetness and laughs, and a perfect balance of humility and humor. Everyone who spoke at the reception really “brought it” as well, and at the end of the day, we really knew Sydney and Will better from hearing about them through the eyes of their family. People might think that reception toasts are just a simple ritual, but for everyone present, listening to them it’s such a great chance to get to know your new family. And I wouldn’t mind being adopted into this one, they’re so great!

Will and Syd, congratulations and may you spend many more days together at the lake!
