When we were both angry, destructive teenagers, I genuinely never thought that I’d see the day where Oliver James got married. As soon as I arrived at MU, though, I realised that I had been wrong. I knew that it was only a matter of time before I saw the two of you getting hitched. Anyone that has spent more than five minutes with the two of you together knows that you just make sense together. You have both played such important parts in my life over the years so it means the world to me that I get to be part of your special day. Ollie, thank you for being the first person to take a chance on me after the very worst day of my life. You didn’t have to take me under your wing but you saw something in me and quite honestly, I think that saved my life. I don’t think I would have survived my teenage years without you so thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Crossing paths with you again at MU has been a genuine blessing and I’m so grateful to be part of your life again. Lola, I wouldn’t even be at MU if you hadn’t seen something in me and encouraged me to dream bigger; and fight tooth and nail to get out of NYC for a fresh start. Thank you for giving me a push in the right direction and continually giving me that helping hand when I need it the most. My life wouldn’t be the same without the two of you so from the bottom of my heart, I wish you all the happiness in the world. You both truly deserve it. All my love -- Amber-Jade.
Holy shit. I can’t believe that you actually pulled this shit off, Oliver. Kudos on managing to lock it down, mate. Alright alright, it’s time to set the jokes aside and tell you both that I’m sincerely and genuinely happy for you. Lola, I’ve known you since we were both young, dumb and wild; and although I haven’t grown up, you sure have and I couldn’t be prouder of you. Ollie, I know that most people just see us dumb fraternity brothers but you’re one of my best friend and a great person to have in my corner. I certainly couldn’t hold down the fort without you as my right hand man. I love you both individually but I’ve also grown to love you as a couple. The two of you bring out the best in each other and you give my cynical heart a little hope that relationships aren’t always a lost cause. I know that you’re going to have a wonderful life together and I’m honoured that I get to be part of that story today by standing by Ollie’s side... so honoured that I won’t be touching a drop of liquor until after the speeches. We all know that I wouldn’t do that shit for just anyone. Love and best wishes to you both, today and always -- Noah.
Mr & Mrs James -- congratulations! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day and celebrating your relationship as you embark on this new chapter. There’s no doubt in my mind that the two of you are going to have a long and happy life together. I hope you enjoy each and every crazy adventure that comes your way as you continue to build your life together. -- Love, Arden.
Flying back from Australia is literally a nightmare. Seriously, who decided that Australia and America should be so damn far apart?! There’s no way that I could miss your special day, though! Lola, I’m so very glad to know you. Our friendship may have begun because I was dating one of your best friends at the time but it quickly became genuine. No matter the distance or what relationship we’re in at the time, you’ve remained so very important to me -- important enough that I flew back from Australia with very little grumbling (trust me, the grumbling could have been way worse!). Ollie... I may not know you very well but you make my girl happier than I’ve ever seen her so thank you. I’m so thrilled to be part of your special day and selfishly hope that a trip to Australia to visit me is in your near future. -- Love, Hadley.
Wow, I can’t believe that you beat me down the aisle! I think I’ll have to have a word with Cae -- it’s starting to seem like he’s bought into that ideal of not buying the cow because he can get the milk for free. Anyway, that’s not the important thing. I really just wanted to say congratulations, Lola! I may not know your (very handsome) man but I can see how happy that he makes you and I just wanted to wish you both a happy and wonderful life together. -- Love, Asher.
Congratulations to the happy couple! Thank you for not only inviting me to your wedding but giving me the honour of photographing your special day. An extra special thanks for getting hitched before graduation so that Ryder and I aren’t the only couple that was crazy enough to do that! All jokes aside, I wish you both all the happiness in the world. I feel truly privileged to have been around to see the two of you fall in love and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for the James’. -- Love, Emery.
Me writing this means I’ve been unsuccessful in my ability to seduce Ollie with my lingerie. I don’t think any of us are surprised though. The connection you to have clearly goes far beyond lingerie. Individually I’ve had the absolute pleasure of getting to know the two of you. It’s given me nothing but a clear picture of how perfect you are for one another. Jokes aside, I’ll always be rooting for you two individually and as a couple. Love, Jack
A year ago I would’ve never thought I’d even be invited to this celebration–nevermind have the opportunity to be apart of making the dang wedding cake! I don’t think either of you understand how much of an honor taking part in your special day is. The three of us have had our disagreements no doubt but, over the past few months it’s been made very clear that Mr. & Mrs. James have my back. You two are some of the most genuine, caring and kind people who deserve every bit of love the other has to offer. Today we celebrate an incredible milestone for you two, but I can’t wait to celebrate your anniversaries for years to come. Wishing you both a lifetime of love, happiness and memories together. xx President Ry Miller
Congratulations to the happy, and beautiful, couple! I never thought I would ever see the day where Oliver James got tied down. In all seriousness, I couldn’t be any happier to see you happy after all of these years. You are destined for amazing things, OJ - and I just know that you’re going to make the best husband and partner. Now onto the beautiful bride! Lola, I’ve only known you for a short few weeks, and I already have so much to thank you for. Thank you for trusting me doing your hair and makeup on your big day; it was so much fun getting to talk hair styles and makeup looks with you, and just make you feel like queen that you are. But more importantly, thank you for making Ollie the happiest man around. Thank you for showing him just how much potential he has, and how he’s pretty lovable after all. I wish you both nothing but love, happiness, and peace as you begin your beautiful life together. To the beautiful bride and groom! – Juliana x
Ollie - I can’t even begin to express my gratitude towards you for allowing me to witness and take part of such a special and momentous day in your life. I know life hasn’t always been on our side, and we unfortunately had fallen victim to my parents schemes, but I couldn’t be any prouder to simply just say that I have had the pleasure of knowing you; family or not. I’m so excited to see what you accomplish in life, and how you grow as you take on this new journey with such a beautiful bride by your side. I’m happy that you were ultimately able to follow your parents footsteps and marry your best friend, soulmate, and the love of your life. They would be so proud to see the man you have become today; remember that. And to the beautiful bride, Lola - thank you for allowing Ollie to allow me to witness such a beautiful ceremony and union of a marriage that is already more beautiful than any other that I’ve seen. Thank you for making him the happy and for always being in his corner. You two are going to have such a beautiful life together, and I can’t wait to witness it! Enjoy your magical day x – Raegan
Lolo and Ollie! I love you both so much, you’re basically like my family. I’m so glad that my best friend in the whole wide world, has finally found someone that makes her happy enough to say yes. And that’s saying a lot - I’ve seen her heart broken more than once. With all that being said…. Ollie. Please take care of her. She’s precious cargo. -Ads
It’s been so great catching up again, Lo! You’ve definitely got a girl-in-love glow about you these days, and it’s so nice to see. Save me a dance. -Gem
Lola, I still love you like a sister and I’m so happy you found someone to spend your life with. Ollie, if you fuck this up, I’ll kill you - Mel.
Lola, I’m glad that you have managed to find someone who can make you laugh like no tomorrow and will look at you as if you hung the stars in the sky. You deserve that kind of love and I guess if it HAD to be Ollie... jokes jokes. Big congrats for finding your special someone. Ollie, you’re a lucky man and remember to remind yourself that everyday because lord knows Lola could have gotten with anyone else but she chose you and stuck by your side. That’s pretty lucky. -- Adrian.
To my favourite couple, congratulations! Seeing your love for one another has always put the biggest smile on my face, and I’m glad that everyone else got to witness the same magic I’ve had the privilege of witnessing for nearly two years now. I’m thankful for both of you, the kindness, and the friendship that you both have given me. I wish you both a life full of joy, happiness, and sex that never gets boring. Love you both long time! — Rebekah
You both should know that I’ve been standing at this damn podium for the last ten minutes trying to figure out what I want to write. As someone who has known you both as individuals and as a couple, I don’t think there could be a more perfect pair. It’s obvious you two bring out the best in each other, and that you both have become better people since being together — and I don’t think I could possibly ask for anything more. I’m proud of you both, and it brings me utter joy to see two of my closest friends so happy. Lola, keep Oliver on his toes and never let him forget who he is. Oliver, don’t fuck this up. Congratulations on the wedding and celebration of your union. Here’s to a life full of nothing but happiness and joy for you both. — Bryce
