Petra was drop-dead gorgeous, as always, and as happy as I have ever seen her. She married Marcus Kennedy, a man with a heart so huge you can see it in his smile. They have a papable love and respect for each other that every best friend, sister, or mother would want for her nearest and most beloved girl.
Surrounded by the best friends anyone could ever ask for, our girl was so happy and felt so adored and supported, I am still floating on the cloud of love that carried us through the weekend.
The gorgeous flowers were by our darling friend Amy Music who owns and runs Posy, and Petra, Rachel, and I all had our hair and make-up done by the sweet and talented ladies of Jolie Laide. Both are local businesses in Columbus, Ohio that brought an elegance and beauty to the lovely day.
Here we are all together, the Kennedys and the Coles, at the wedding party table after being announced and joining everyone inside. It was truly an amazing night that we will all remember forever.
I wrote and performed the most important speech of my life with my Maid of Honor toast. Honestly, Petra is everything to me, and all I wanted was to do her and our lifelong friendship proud. 30 years of love fit into a seven-minute toast, and I poured out my heart to my darling girl without crying. I am proud and happy that the words I wrote seemed to resonate and ring true to those who were there. For those of you who could not attend and have asked to read it, click on the post to read my speech after the jump.
Good evening, dear friends. I am Meg, and next to Marcus I am the luckiest person in the world, as I am the maid of honor and best friend to our sweet Petra. I am married to that handsome man over there, Will Cole. But before my husband, before anyone else ever touched this heart of mine, I already had a soul mate. For the last 30 years of this life, Petra Rossner has been my closest companion, my dearest and truest friend.
