My name is Horace Mungin. I am the oldest uncle of the groom.
Today it is my most pleasant duty to bid you all greetings on behalf of the Moses family and the Lewis/Cornelius family – on this very special occasion – the joining together of two families from distant parts of the world.
This is a momentous achievement in itself – but not nearly as consequential as the fact that two young people have offered each other their eternal love before us all and God.
After dinner, the bash was on and the guests romped and celebrated long into the night. The bride and groom spent the night in the wedding suite at Langverwagt Farm. The next week, when the rest of us had returned to the United States, the couple went on a two-week honeymoon at the Misty Beach Hotel in Hermanus, a whaling town off the coast of Cape Town. “We spent our days at Hermanus giggling and going for long walks,” the 23-year-old bride recalled some months later. For her new American family, it was a trip and a wedding we shall always cherish.
