Wedding, bar mitzvah and retirement party toasts are usually boring, scripted or lack sincerity. Not so at Katherine and Chad’s wedding last night in Pinehurst, North Carolina. Katherine is FOF’s talented art director and photographer and Chad works for a theatre company in New York. When Chad’s younger brother, Will, brilliantly toasted the new couple, he mentioned being worried that Chad would be lonely when he went away to college. “But Katherine took away that worry,” Will explained.
Will praised Chad’s abilities, sensibilities and good humor. But it was one line that Will brought up during the toast that went right to the heart of Chad’s big heart.
“Be good to everyone,” Chad once advised Will.
What a statement! We should all take heed.
