This past weekend can only be described as a beautiful, emotional, hilarious train wreck.
It was the best wedding I've ever been to.
My closest friend, Tony, got married to the love of his life. I was the best man, but due to health concerns, the pastor couldn't make it. Now, about 9 years ago I got ordained as a joke and in the time since then I completely forgot about it. Tony and Amy (the bride) did not.
The thing about officiating your best friend's wedding is you are already emotionally invested so anytime someone starts crying you can't help but cry. And I cried a lot.
Like a whole lot.
I was standing there and I heard sniffling to my left; Tony was teary mess and when he made eye contact with me it was like a faucet opened. I'm pretty sure we cried more than anyone else at the wedding.
All this is to say, I saw my brother get married this weekend. I got to be a part of it and I'm ecstatic to add another chunk of people to my family.
TLDR; I'm not crying, you're crying!!!
