Mr. and Mrs. Tucker!

Since there wasn't a time for toasts at the reception, I'd like to do mine now!

(pretend we're still at the reception and grab a glass of something)

Let me just start out by saying, that I've known Mandy for a long time....and I have all of my life...seen Mandy as happy as she is today. Bradley, I think you might have a little something to do with that!

About 10 years ago, Mandy and I found a coffee cup with a Mary Engelbreit quote on it. We loved it so much that we adapted our own version. It says...

"Now listen and believe me, I am not just saying this because I am your friend–you are the prettiest, nicest girl in the entire town, not to mention the brightest, and if you don’t believe me just look in the mirror. I happen to know that there are dozens of young men who would give their eyeteeth to go out with a wonderful girl like you. Boys are shy too, you know. Don’t you worry, someday your ship will come in."

Now I know that Bradley recently had his wisdom teeth taken that's pretty close to eye teeth right?

Today has been a beautiful wedding day....and Mandy, it was on honor to be standing next to you on the day that your ship came in.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Tucker!

It was a great wedding!
I didnt even think about the toasts either, until you just mentioned that.

Post some video if you have it.

Looking forward to seeing pics of you with your family...

So sweet! You remind me of my MOH who just made my day even more wonderful. I'm sure Mandy feels the same way about you!
