I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you’ve dreamed of
And I wish you joy and happiness
But above all this I wish you love
And I will always love you
These words, spoken during a speech at Douglas and Jason’s wedding, were met with both laughter and happy tears. Now, it’s normal for a wedding to contain both laughter and tears, but usually they are alternating, not concurrent. Douglas and Jason, and apparently their friends and family, have the magical ability to be deeply vulnerable and authentic while also being ironic and witty at exactly the same time.
Douglas and Jason, following you around on your wedding day was like getting to be part of one of the funniest and most emotionally satisfying movies that I wish everyone could see. Somehow you don’t take yourselves too seriously, finding the ability to make a joke (that lands) pretty much at any moment, while at the same time, you are completely present to the miracle that you actually found each other and are creating this life together as husbands.
I’m so happy to know you two, and I wish you nothing but joy, happiness, and love.
