Dear Marco,

Some time has passed. Abhi and I had about 10 days to ourselves on a small “honey moon” trip to Dresden, Görlitz, Prague, and the Bayrischer Wald. Now, we are back at home in Asheville and are sinking back into our routine. And we have been back at work for about a week.

We wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for you speech at our ceremony. I don’t think we have the words to fully express how happy we were with your speech and how grateful we are for how straightforward and easy you made the process leading up to the ceremony. I do believe I speak for everybody in attendance that your words were moving, personal, and ultimately perfect. Literally, all guests asked about you and how and where we found you. Everybody found something in your speech to which they could relate and empathize. Abhi’s parents expressed that they felt like they finally know us — and Abhi’s mother even claimed that after your speech she knew I am ok and right for her daughter.

Initially, we were a bit concerned as to what a complete stranger could possibly say about us — for 45 minutes, and without ever having met us in person. We were afraid that things would be awkward. We shouldn’t have doubted you. You made the ceremony and we will forever cherish the memory.

I hope you are well,

Peter and Abhi
