Speaking the Same Language: Christine & Tony

There's an old song that claims "to know him is to love him," but when it comes to a relationship and a marriage, I think it's really the other way around: to really love someone means knowing that person, understanding her for everything she is. And so hearing how Christine's friend described the two of them during her wonderful toast, I couldn't help but smile. "Tony is the best boyfriend Christine ever had. He gets her," she said. "He really speaks her language." I can't think of anything more perfect to say about a couple than that. Having the chance to be a part of their wedding day, watch the two of them together and with their families, and hearing what people had to say about them, I feel like I got to know them a bit, too. And what I came away with was a picture of two simply wonderful people. Christine, generous of spirit, outgoing, supportive, the best friend anyone could have. And Tony, a loving father, a man of deep passion and emotion, so overcome with feeling that he couldn't speak his vows above a whisper, but also a man with a laugh as big as his heart. What a privilege for me to get to be a part of their story.
