That was the most AMAZING wedding. Amie was the most breathtaking bride... she just glowed. Everyone looked incredible and everyone had an awesome time. It was so much fun! My Maid of Honor speech went really well, and if you're interested in reading it, it's here:

Being the procrastinator that I am I didn't actually finish writing this speech until last night. It wasn't that I hadn't put any thought into it until then, or that I had a lack of wonderful things to say about Amie and Eric, but rather it was the fact that it's hard to put into words how seeing both of them together, so happy, makes me feel. Though it was a bit stressful not having anything down on paper until then, I'm glad I waited because I've been able to spend a lot of time with the bride and groom this past week, and I guess you could say I was inspired.

Last Saturday I was at Amie and Eric's Aufruf. (For those of you who don't know, that's part of the Jewish wedding ceremony.) I saw the two of them up on the beema together and even though I didn't understand a word of what they were saying because it was all in Hebrew, my heart honestly felt like it was going to burst with love and happiness at seeing them together. We always hear the phrase "life isn't fair" but seeing Amie and Eric together makes me realize that sometimes it actually is, because for once two people who deserve the best in the world have found it in each other.

I have always thought that Amie and Eric were meant to be together. Separately they are special, remarkable people, but together they are complete. Everything about their relationship felt right from the beginning, the way they started as friends and then evolved into something more. It all felt so right as it happened and I know that the life they have ahead of them will feel just as right as it does today. You give true definition to the word soulmates. You are a perfect couple, you truly deserve each other and I know that you will have a long and happy life together.

Amie, you have been the most amazing friend anyone could ever ask for. Whether it's been four in the morning, or four in the afternoon, you've always been there for me like no one else. I'm not sure what I've ever done to deserve such an amazing friend, but I feel so blessed to have you in my life. It's been said that true friends are the sisters that God forgot to give us, so I hope that even though you've gained two sister-in-laws today, you'll still consider me the sister you never had, because you will always be mine. It has been an incredible honor to be such a big part of your wedding, and I can't tell you how much it means to me that you chose me to stand up next to you today.

Amie and Eric, you are going to have the most amazing life together. If I'm half as happy and loved as you are when I get married, I will count myself extremely blessed.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please raise your glasses once again for the Bride and Groom. May their love and happiness last a lifetime.

I made like everyone cry. I had to console Kristina for like 15 minutes afterward because she couldn't crying. *Kristina hugs* I kept getting compliments on it all night so I am glad everyone liked it. :D I was so nervous! We got it over with pretty early in the evening so at least I didn't have to stress about it.

I can't wait to see everyone's pictures as well as the ones from the professional photographer. I did manage to get a few good ones though. Here are just a few so you can get an idea of how gorgeous everything was:

Isn't she beautiful?

We are a damn good looking wedding party.

The Happy Couple

I do have to say, I was pretty impressed with how well I managed to keep it together as far as crying went. I got teary eyed during the ceremony but for the most part didn't cry, but it was definitely a struggle when Amie was walking down the aisle. I was good for most of the ceremony, too, but I definitely lost it a couple times (the Father-Daughter dance, and at the end when Amie and Eric were dancing their last dance to "I Love You Always Forever"). I just couldn't help it because even when it wasn't a sappy moment just looking at them and seeing them so happy made me want to cry with joy.

So now I am physically and emotionally drained. I really can not put into words how much the whole day meant to me, or just how much love I have for Amie and Eric. They are so incredibly perfect for one another. If they can't live happily ever after, then I really think I will lose faith, not only in true love, but in all things good in the universe. If anyone deserves a happily ever after, it's them. Gah... I can't think about this anymore, I will start crying again! I think I could sob for three hours straight and I still don't think it would be enough of an emotional release. *sigh* Anyway, I can't function right now so I'm going to go grab some Starbucks to wake my sorry ass up. I will post more pictures at some point. Later, skaterz.
