Many speeches given at weddings tend to focus on either inside jokes between the speech giver and the bride or groom, or be more of a list of adjectives that describe the bride or groom. This is nice! And I know I love hearing how great I am in a carefully selected string of descriptive words - but I realized that its sort of rare to be able to hear the story of a couple and how they met from attending their wedding!If it wasn’t obvious until now, Maclean and I are big fat fans of ‘story’ (have we said that before?) So we were super jazzed (yes, jazzed) to be able to hear Juelie (Joo-elle-ee) and Andre (Dre)’s story through many different people while at their wedding. And their story is funny! Which makes sense because these two are hi-LARIOUS. Each time we met with them Mac and I would laugh our pants off! I asked Mac after our final meeting before their wedding “Can I just film Juelies face the entire day? Cause she’s TOO funny! I don’t wanna miss anything she says!” (We later decided that maybe we should film other things as well, but that it was a good idea).
Moral of the story (see what I did there?) - its fun to be able to tell a story of a story! Does that make sense? It will – watch it and see!
