Wedding speeches are hard. And it’s even harder to give one that checks all the right boxes when it comes to a memorable delivery that’s laced with healthy amounts of positive humour. See also: tips for the perfect wedding toast.
But this particular speech by Naomi and Sarah Carter given at their sister Susie Kasteel’s wedding in Vancouver on July 2016, hit all the right notes, and more.
The sisters’ speech was performed to a medley of Disney tunes including Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast, I’ll Make A Man Out of You from Mulan, Can You Feel The Love Tonight from Lion King and A Whole New World from Aladdin with beautifully written lyrics that were changed to reflect their sister’s relationship.
According to HuffPost Weddings, the talent for singing runs in the family, with “music being a big part of our household” when they were growing up. In fact, their mother was an opera singer, and Naomi and Sarah were also into musical theatre!
Unsurprisingly, the speech, which was pulled off with tremendous finesse, received a standing ovation, shouts of laughter, and garnered a video (see below) that’s probably making its rounds around the Internet right about now.
