Good evening everyone! For those of you that don’t already know me, I’m Chris Kijowski, this is my wife Nancy and we’re parents of the groom.
We’d like to thank everyone for joining us for Stephen and Caitlin’s wedding.
As I look at these two beautiful people tonight, I think back to when Stephen first introduced Caitlin to us. Once we got to know here it was easy to see why the two had fallen in love and why they fit together so well.
Now, it’s hard to imagine our family without her.
Stephen, mom and I are very proud of you and we love you very much.
Caitlin, you were first known to us as Stephen’s friend, then his girlfriend, his fiancé and now his wife. We love you and we couldn’t be happier to call you our daughter.
While I don’t want to hold up the reception, I do want to take a minute more and offer some suggestions to Stephen and Caitlin. Every morning when you wake up, make a promise to yourselves that today you will be the very best spouses you can be. Put each other’s happiness before your own and try to perform at least one act of kindness for each other every day. I often ask my patients to ask one question of their partner. That question is “How can I make your day better?” While this is a simple request it is one which is often overlooked and lost in the busyness of our day. If you are willing to do that everything else will fall into place.
Congratulations to the two of you and may your marriage be always blessed.
