Meaningful Words by Officiant, Bestman, Groom
As a DJ and Master of Ceremonies it is part of my job to conduct the festivities of an event. This includes having a scripted itinerary and working with the wedding coordinator to ensure presenters are properly introduced.
At this wedding everyone spoke well. There were sincere toasts and witty anecdotes. I was particularly moved by the groom’s acknowledgement of his parents of how they had worked hard and made heroic choices to provide opportunity and a future for their children.
The Power of Acknowledgement
At the end of the evening the mother of the groom dressed in traditional Korean blue Hanbok sincerely shook my hand and said “You helped make all of us happy.” and then she bowed to me. Her meaningful acknowledgement and gracious gesture struck a timeless ideal within me.
