To say I was nervous about speaking at my sister’s wedding is an understatement. Good thing I didn’t have to speak for too long. Organizing a flash mob was a better idea! I cannot thank Exit 82 theatre and our friends and family enough for making my MOH speech a success. All I wanted to do was make my sister smile. I think I did that! I will cherish this memory forever ❤ And I’ll be watching this video on repeat.
STORY BEHIND THE SONG: My sister, Lisa, and her fiancé, now husband, Justin, met while doing the Toms River Exit 82 theater company's production of "Rock of Ages." They both are very talented and love acting and performing. I thought that organizing a flash mob to a song from that show would surprise them. And it did!
And it was one of the most fun things I've ever done.
