I’ve waited for your wedding since the day you were born. And yet, I feel thoroughly unprepared. And though the last many days I’ve hoped for, prayed for and anticipated this, I am speechless now. You gush with enthusiasm. My throat is choked and my cheeks are drowned in tears.
I want to wish you a life full of happiness, a life full of goodness, love, warmth, joy, beauty, and fulfillment.
We are extremely excited. I feel so unbelievably happy, yet be crying at the same time. You have brought so much happiness and love to our lives. You made our family complete, and we can’t wait until you experience this with a family of your own. We are proud of everything you have accomplished in your life and the woman you have become. I remember the little girl who stole the show in the kindergarten pageant and the middle schooler who led the student council. The years have flown by so fast. There have been ups, there have been downs and while I’ll always cherish the past I hope your future is filled with more smiles than frowns.
I remember how anxious I was about this new stage in your life. How in the world were we to find your life’s partner? Who would possibly be special enough for you? Who would be the one? It seemed like a search for a needle in a haystack would be simpler.
They say that your wedding day is the happiest day of your life. Our wedding day was indeed a very happy day, but nothing compared to the day that my daughter was born. When you were born into the world, it was as if the world was full of hope again. You were beautiful and as you grew older, I learned that you were smart and kind as well. Watching you get older never got any easier, but I am proud to say that you have grown into a strong woman who has gracefully come into her own. And you have found the perfect partner along the way.
When I got married, I knew that it was the beginning of a wonderful adventure. Now that my daughter has found someone to share this adventure that is called life with her, I know that she will be blessed with a loving husband and a wonderful home.
As the two of you embark on your new life together, I wish you all of the happiness and peace in the world.
With lots of love and blessings
