“I think I’m gonna wing it,”
I’m sat in the front of the cab I’ve taken with Maya + Jason, and Emily the photographer, from the church to the evening’s venue. That statement was from Jason, talking about the speech that he’d not written yet.
He’d tried. I’d witnessed what he could come up with at the last minute, as he wrote his vows during groom prep - he knew how to speak from the heart, which probably wasn’t hard when he was talking about the woman he loves.
And god damn, the man nailed it.
I’m not much of a public speaker, but I appreciate someone who can stand up and speak unprepared about their honest feelings. The guy brought a few people to tears as he talked about the round-the-world trip he and Maya had taken through winter before their wedding and knew he’d made the right decision to ask his new wife to spend the rest of their lives together.
