Okay, technically, when this post goes live, Matt and Erin will not officially be married, but it will be just hours away. I didn't want to wait until the afternoon.
Today is a celebration. Matt and Erin will become husband and wife in front of family and friends. The young couple will officially begin their lives together.
I can't believe how time has flown. Suddenly it seems, Matt is a fine young adult. Where did the time go? It also seems just yesterday he started dating Erin. I think it has actually been more than seven years.
I am very proud to be standing up next to Matt as his best man. It is an honor and will be a memory that I will cherish.
Matt is a great kid (since he is unmarried right as I type this, I can still call him a kid). Together they will be a great couple. I wish them a lifetime of happiness. I hope you join me in sending good vibes and all that stuff their way.
Matt and Erin Parker in in Woodridge, IL-August 2015.
