I love being a part of weddings where the groom gets visibly emotional. Here’s a secret: men are extremely emotional about things they care about. Does your man say that he’s not an emotional person? Simply watch him while he’s watching his favourite sports team is get pummelled or when they score that game-winning point — I guarantee you that some kind of emotion will be stirred up there! In other words, when a groom shows an emotional response to his bride on their wedding day, he is proving that he cares for her very much. In Deven’s (Kevin’s Best Man) speech, he talked about how Kevin automatically and selflessly puts others before himself, how that played out over time in their friendship together, and how that level of kindness works well in marriage: stories like that are so encouraging to hear.
Leslie and Kevin travelled all the way here to Toronto from Vancouver, and I’m so thankful that I got to know them, and their amazing friends who travelled from all over the world to join them here too! Because they needed to plan and organize their wedding long-distance, they leaned heavily on my personal recommendations for other wedding partners / vendors, so it was nice to be reunited again with so many great friendly faces that day: I’ve been a part of the wedding industry here in Toronto for 9 years now, so I’ve gotten to know a lot of amazing people over that time!
Congratulations, #LeslieAndKevin2017! Say “Hi” to Jetson for me :)
