The Wedding Party
Maid of Honor
Growing up Mellissant and I were polar opposites: She liked orange juice, I liked guava juice. She liked chocolate ice-cream, I liked strawberry ice-cream and the list goes on.
Being three years older than me, she wanted her privacy and I longed to be noticed by her. I admired her and I wanted to be her friend, not just her sister.
Over the years, I have come to realize that not only do we have far more in common than I once believed, but we also have a special bond unlike any other relationship. Melissa has such an encouraging nature and a truly generous heart. She is consistently there for me and she always accepts me just as I am -no matter what pickle I find myself in.
I am so proud to call her not only my sister, but my friend and Maid of Honor as well.
Thank you Mel
Charles is my big brother, my first hero and the man who had my back growing up more than I realized — sometimes not
by choice but by imposition.
The first time I slipped into the Blanco River, too young to know I was about to be swept away and drown, it was his hand that plunged into the water to grab and save me.
Growing up, I wanted nothing more than to be “a big boy” just like him. I never felt more special than when sitting next to him in his Chevelle SS, running down North New Braunfels
with the 8-track blaring the Stones 'Exile on Main Street' or whatever he had in the deck. He gives me reason to return
to my home town, where he lives in San Antonio, Texas.
He has made himself a successful professional and among the most respected leaders in international merger and acquisition practice and tax policy in the United States by his sheer
talent, determination and grit.
Many times he provided needed cover for me, in a difficult home environment, without which I would not have had the opportunities I've had. He appreciates a good glass of
whisky, premium cigars and good music. He loves fast high performance automobiles, is a dead shot, works a pump shotgun like a machine gun, and has been gracious to me in reconciling misunderstanding.
I am privileged he is willing to stand beside me.
