Elise, Andrea's matron of honor and sister told this story to open up her toast. "When we were little, Andrea and I used to ride the bus together. One day I noticed a friend's cat outside and saw it hobbling down the street. The cat only had three legs! I turned to Andrea as I laughed at the cat's misfortune. However, when I turned to her, Andrea wasn't laughing. 'Elise', she exclaimed, 'That's not funny! How would you feel if you only had three legs? You wouldn't want anyone to be laughing at you!'" Elise went on to describe Andrea's kindness and selflessness towards others; how she and Cory make a perfect pair and how much they love others and each other.
It's true. Andrea and Cory are some of the nicest people I have ever met. Greeting you with smiles and hugs, they always find a way to make you feel welcomed and loved. What a joy it has been to get to know them over these past few months. They are the type of people you feel lucky just to know. They really are a special couple.
Their wedding day was a joyous celebration; a unique mixture of Cory's Jewish and Andrea's Catholic faith. More importantly it was a reflection of who they are; a day filled with love, family and good friends. Cory and Andrea, I am so grateful to have been able to be a part of your day.
Despite a few butterflies for Cory, both were more than relaxed on their wedding day. Andrea confidently and excitedly floated around the room with her girls while Cory ate a leisurely breakfast and chummed it up with his best men. What a way to start the day!
Cory got ready at a rented home right on the water, while Andrea and her girls dressed at the beautiful Hodgdon Island Inn where the wedding took place. *note to brides looking for a wedding location or anyone looking to get away for the weekend, check this place out! With a beautiful location right on the water, and the most hospitable owners, Pam and Richard, this Inn is almost close to perfection!*
