Weasley/Granger wedding

No comments

So I was digging through some old keepsakes and came across a few items from Ron and Hermoine's wedding. I know what you're thinking, "I didn't know Jon knew any wizards." Well, it was more of a friend of a friend thing, but the Weasley's are every bit as nice a family as you'd expect.

Above is the front of the invitation (I think Ginny drew it) which I think is great, but my favorite memory was Harry, stammering his way through the Best Man's speech. When the reception was over I was helping clean up and found Harry's speech. Figured it was time to share it with the world.

I've transcribed it so it's a bit easier to read. Enjoy:
"I'm not really one for making speeches so bear with me:

Ron, we've been through some crazy stuff haven't we?! I remember how we would stay up late in the Griffyndor common room, playing wizards chess until our fingers bled. And do you remember the time you almost died in the devils snare?! Thankfully you've learned to relax by now!

You have been there for me through thick and thin. Even when we fought, I always knew you had my back. There is no one in the world I would be more proud to have as a best friend.

Hermione, where do I begin?
From the moment you popped your frizzy-haired head into our train car I knew you were special. Maybe it's the way you carried yourself, or the way you were sooo good at telling us exactly what we were doing wrong! "You shouldn't be in there!" "It's levi-OH-sa, not levio-SAH" ...

I'm only kidding of course. Had it not been for Hermione, Ron and I would have been dead on several occasions, and he-who-must-not-be-named would have probably already killed everyone in this room. And don't get me started on how much gold she saved me by always fixing my glasses!

You have grown into a beautiful, intelligent, strong woman…and falling in love with Ron just helps prove how opposites really do attract!

So, here's to Ron and Hermione! Through the good and bad you have both been there for me and I know you will do the same for each other."
