“I’m pretty sure the secret to our marriage... is that we’re both marrying the funniest person we’ve ever met,” was what this rebel couple said during their vows. Their guests literally broke out in applause.
Meet Avi + Jon… an Aussie and native New Yorker whose love party was the perfect mix of details, spontaneity, and some of the greatest speeches we’ve ever heard. From the start, these two were on top of every detail - from a flower assembly workshop with family and friends to talking through how the exact way they wanted to be announced (they decided on “the new and improved Avi + Jon!” Get it? They got married and stayed the same!), these rebels were all about intentionality. So you better believe that when they were doing a quick boogie down practice before their first dance and Avi said, “Forget that I didn’t want our wedding on Instagram - our love party is AWESOME!! Share it with the world!” -- she was right. Their love party was awe-fucking-some.
But the best part of it all? The speeches - seriously! We’ve heard a lot of toasts in our days, but never have we heard a mom compare her kid’s life to a TV show that “had all aspects of production - wardrobe, producers, and supporting actors”, winking at the siblings in the room. “This wedding is the season finale of what I hope is a long running series. I am your biggest fan, and I promise to tune in for every episode.”
