When the boys surprised Omar (and me) by announcing to the wedding that he would be giving a speech! Omar rose to the occasion despite and gave a heart warming speech despite having been put on the spot.
It’s so hard to pick! I’d have to say the entire day. It was just perfect. Also the cigar photos are pretty cool…
