”Hello… how bout that ride in? I guess thats why they call it Sin City. haha. You guys might not know this but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one man wolf pack. But when Beth Anne brought David home, I knew he was one of my own. And my wolf pack, it grew by one. So there… there were two of us in the wolf pack. I was alone first in the pack and David joined in later…” — Gary Maier (aka the funniest and coolest father-of-the-bride and best speech-giver EVER!)
So, yeah, that was the start of Gary’s speech, and he absolutely nailed it. Needless to say, it was a hit with everyone! Hearing the father-of-the bride start his speech with lines from “The Hangover” movie was definitely a first for me. I was laughing so hard I could hardly hold the camera still. The photo below of Dave & Beth Anne’s initial reaction to Gary’s speech is one of my favorite images from their wedding.
