7: I would like to thank everyone for being here. I hope everyone is enjoying themselves. We’re here to celebrate with Amanda and Ryan, and I have a few words to say about them. First Amanda. It was about 7 years ago when Amanda first came to our house to see Ryan. I was at the back door when Amanda came up the driveway and said "I’m here to see Ryan." I told her "That would be $5.00." She stood there with this puzzled look, wondering who is this guy?! She didn’t pay up but I still let her in. Amanda, I’m glad you continued to come to our house even if it was to sleep on the couch as Ryan and I would watch a really good episode of Star Trek. And remember you’re always welcome to come over and watch Star Trek with me. It’ll be a really good one. And Ryan. What can I say about Ryan, other than Ryan is Ryan. As I was thinking about what to say about Ryan, I thought about his hobbies – his own beer tasting list that is categorized and ranked, or his 3,000 songs for his MP3 player, or his 2 bikes that he spends hours on tweaking to perfection. Then there are the washer boxes that Ryan spent 3 months on, drawing up the prints, cutting & gluing the wood. Then sanding, staining and varnishing the boxes. Then sanding and putting on a wood finish. Sanding, then a coat of urethane, then sanding, and polyurethane. Not once but 3 coats. And recently his hot pepper garden, with 6 different peppers and heat intensities. And then I realized I’m overanalyzing Ryan. But the truth is, Ryan is successful in everything he does. And I wish Amanda and Ryan a successful life together.

10: The Boys

12: My Aunt Susan made beautiful handkerchiefs from Grandma Jeanette Sura's wedding dress material with our two initials intertwined to form the shape of a heart. They had beautiful detailed beading from the dress itself and it was a touching way to have Grandma Sura with us on our special day.

16: A Letter from Ryan to Amanda on Our Wedding Day | I didn't have to think twice when I asked you to be my wife. I knew you were the one for me. I feel a connection that is hard to put into words. I just know you are the one for me and we will always be together, I love you with my whole heart. I have never trusted anyone the way I trust you. I know deep down inside that you feel the same way for me and with that you will never break my heart or let me down in anyway. Thank you for everything and for everything to come and I hope you receive everything you deserve. I will love you until the end of time. Always and forever, your poogoo bear, Ryan. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH !!! | Dear Amanda, Ever since English class I knew you were a friend worth keeping. And ever since you were my best friend I have been smiling. Smiling at our fun memories together and our silly pet names. I smile every time I take a shower and use "sham-poogoo," and it's all because of you. I'm so happy you came into my life. You are so caring, loving, and faithful. You are the love of my life. I know you love me for who I am and I love you even more for that.

17: A Letter from Amanda to Ryan on Our Wedding Day | Dear Ryan, The next time I see you we will be getting married. The sun will rise on our wedding day as it does on every other day, but when it sets I will be “Mrs. Amanda Sura.” It hard to believe that little boy struggling with his vocabulary words behind me in English class will become my husband today. Our friendship and our relationship up to this point has brought forth its amazing memories, its challenges, its laughter, and its tears, but despite it all we are still together. Today for me a new life will begin, I will be walking towards a person and a love so familiar to me, but also towards the unknowns our marriage and our new life will bring. I can’t promise our life will be easy, life never is simple and easy when it comes to you. You drive me crazy sometimes and I don’t always like you, but I always love you more than anything on this earth and I just know I always will. But today is so much bigger than us, I get a second family and my first sibling. I can no longer call things like spooge and staple sura-isms without making fun of myself, o fair. My life changed when I met you in high school, you’ve been my best friend for the longest time and now my life will change again and although I need to train you to come watch my dancers at state and you need to train me to not throw bottle caps away. I’m so excited for our new life. In the words of Dave,” you and me together, we can do anything.” And I believe that. So as I walk towards you today a new life begins, just me and you "as we sail into the mystic".

96: sense of humor. The first time I met him, I knew he was the one as he sat and went through dance scrapbooks with us. However, I know they have the foundation for a wonderful marriage; not just lovers, but lifelong friends as well. Amanda and Ryan, I want to say thank you. You guys make things entertaining and exciting for the rest of us. Every one of us is proud to be your friend, and we'd do anything for you. All in all, you two, I can see you both making a success of everything you do together, especially in your marriage. Oh yeah, with a couple exceptions; I don't know how much progress Amanda will be able to make in her efforts to teach Ryan how to dance, but at least there is hope. And I don't know how far Ryan will get in persuading Amanda to spend less time with pom girls. I don't know how he does it. Ryan, I hate to break it to you, but I do have a few requests. First, you must make sure that Amanda is happy throughout your married life and I am sure Amanda would take care of you by providing you with the fullest of her love. | Good evening. For those of you who don't know me, I am Rachael, Amanda's dance student, pom girl, and one of her best friends. I want to start by congratulating Amanda and Ryan, and thanking all of you for joining us here today. When I look at the bride and groom, I feel such a whirlwind of emotions. I know that Amanda has found her true match and I know theirs will be a marriage long standing. My heart is bursting with love for the two of them today. I never knew Ryan before he dated Amanda, so I can't tell you horrible stories about him, but I can tell you I think he is perfect for her. He is easy going, patient, and has a great | Father of the Bride Speech

99: Also, I hope you both realize that you will always have a seventeen year old at your house. That spare bedroom, is mine. On a more serious note, my greatest wish for you two of you is that through the years, your love for each other will deepen and grow. Years from now, may you look back on this day, your wedding day, as the beginning of a life long journey. Ladies and gentlemen, please raise your glasses while I toast Amanda and Ryan. Take each day and cherish your time together. Love one another and stand together. Take time to talk to one another. Put your love and your family first; your job and your hobbies second. May your love be like the wind, strong enough to move the clouds, soft enough to never hurt, but always never ending. So here's to love, to laughter, and happily ever after. Cheers!

100: If I could have everyone's attention please. If You don't already know I am Devin, Ryan's "Little Brother". I'd like to congratulate Ryan and Amanda on this special day and thank all of you for being here to help celebrate their love for each other. I'll start with Amanda. Ever since she's been with Ryan she has always been like a sister to me. | She's always been there for me with school, coaching, and just being a best friend for me that I can talk to, and she is always looking out for me (even for the wedding by putting Chad in charge of me) But now I can say, it's official, Amanda is my sister now and I couldn't be happier. And you did promise me you'd start cooking for me so I'll be waiting for and looking forward to that. | Now, when I was thinking of what to say for Ryan and Amanda and what she means to him, I was struggling quite a bit because I know she is his everything. So I thought about it, I wanted to get as specific as I could and then it popped into my head knowing who Ryan is and what his second true love is. I know he will correct me if I am wrong, but I will do my best. So I came up with this, to Ryan, Amanda is like his favorite beer, Sprecher Special Amber. | Devin's Best Man Speech

101: Like Special amber, she's a little bit hoppy, because she loves to dance. A special amber has a medium body build just like Amanda. Not a stout dark beer where she hides her feelings and emotions, but opens up to Ryan sharing her thoughts and feelings with him. This beer also leaves you with a smile when you drink it, just like Amanda did when she was introduced to our family; we were all left smiling from her wonderful personality and smile. Ryan, we have always been close growing up. I remember the days coming home from school and instantly wrestling; like typical brothers, I mean you even put my head through a wall. Guess that's true brotherly love. But the wrestling stopped once I starting outgrowing you. To this day, you still correct people that you're the oldest, even when we got our tuxedos. You truly were and still are my big brother because you always went through everything in life before me and when it was my turn I would always get nervous and come to you. You would tell me what to expect and what you did to get through and I figured if you were able to do it, I couldn't let you down. Its going to be tough not having you around as much and not having my best friend with me all the time to encourage me and help me through life's obstacles, but I know you will be with Amanda, being there for her guiding her through the tough times, making her feel more comfortable. I just want you to know that I will always be there for you and have your back for anything in life. I'm so proud of you both and wish you only the best for the future.
