But there’s a lot more to being [positive personality trait driving weird behavior] than [aforementioned weird behavior]. We’ve all seen [groom’s name] bring his [positive personality trait] to his work as a [groom’s profession] and to his pursuit of [universally recognized hobby or pastime]. And it’s definitely been a driving force in a friendship that has lasted [length of time of friendship], with a lot of years yet to come.
And, in any case, we all knew that [aforementioned weird behavior] wouldn’t last forever. (At least we all hoped it wouldn’t!) If it had, then [bride’s name] probably wouldn’t have given [groom’s name] a second look at [venue of their first meeting], where they first met. Walking into [venue of their first meeting], I’m sure neither [groom’s name] nor [bride’s name] expected it to be the start of a journey that would lead us here today. After all, [bride’s name] was so busy with her [estimable occupation/hobby/passion of that time], while [groom’s name] was so busy with his [ridiculous/juvenile hobby], that neither thought that they had room for another person in their life.
On [approximate date of first meeting], destiny changed their plans.
