The wedding took place at a historic antebellum mansion in Dallas
with a string quartet
and lovely flowers with greenery from the yard of her parent's home
her sisters stood with her
their vows were written by each of them
but the most amazing thing came by way of something unexpected
~the toast of the best man~
*my sister told me that Adam was very regimented and he had a to-do list that was very specific
We are supposed to eat the gourmet cupcakes at 8:05 PM. And he means 8:05.
The best man said this at 9:15
I have known Adam for over 10 years and now Mary almost that long.
Adam is a man of habit.
He is a man of good habits. He does good things and he does things right.
And then I met Mary, and she fit in so well with him because she is also a person of good habits.
But this couple is special, because together, they have created a life in which they will do good things and do good things together.
Their habits have made a lasting impression on me.
Their marriage will be one that is an example to all of us sitting here right now...
they have made a habit of kindness for each other
They have made it a habit
when I told my sister in law the toast her response was this
It's just not that hard
I think this new generation is going to change the course of marriage in our country
I happen to agree
