After the ceremony, guests relocated for cocktails at a bar set up in the location where Kate Upton and Justin Verlander had their ceremony. At 8:00 p.m., there was a call to dinner. Everyone took their seats at one long table under a canopy of greenery strung with lights and hanging candles. “The setting is already so beautiful; we thought it didn’t need too much, so we did low flowers on the table,” Caroline explains. A three-course dinner of Italian favorites was served while speeches were given. All of them were exceptional but, as it should be, David’s was funny, moving, and filled with love:

“Caroline and I really believe that we are the sum of who we are surrounded by, and with these family and friends that are gathered here today, we’re very lucky and that’s something that’s very special to us, so thank you for coming out,“ he said before telling his version of how he and Caroline met. “It’s November 2015...we’re playing against the Miami Heat. I can’t remember who won or lost, which probably means we lost by 30 points. I go out to dinner afterwards...they say every relationship begins with a miracle...the fact that [you were out at] dinner past 7:30 p.m.—because normally you would be asleep 8:00 p.m.—was a miracle.” They got to talking at dinner, and eventually David (realizing he’d forgotten to get her number) followed her out of the restaurant. They took the Fisher Island Ferry back to her place, hung out for a bit, and then he went to sleep in the guest room.

The next morning, he woke up hoping to get breakfast together, but she promptly informed him that she had practice. Thinking their shared status as professional athletes would lead to further bonding, he offered to come watch. “People don’t watch practice,” she responded. He then suggested breakfast, but that wouldn’t work either as her coach was on his way over. That’s okay, David thought: “I have a coach, you have a coach. I can eat with your coach.“ “That won’t work either,“ she said. “My coach is my dad.“ Everyone erupted in laugher. David then went on to hilariously describe his “ferry walk of shame“ home, before getting more serious as he addressed his new wife:

“The dedication you have to tennis, your daily routine, everything you do to be the champion that you are, it’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. Even above that is the class and the principles that you live by, and that means more than any match you could ever win, any tournament you could ever win, and it’s for that reason that young girls look up to you, the whole world looks up to you for what you do and what you stand for, and why I look up to you so much. As a man you’ve made me a better person. I love you with all of my heart and promise to treat you like the most special woman now and forever.” Cue the tears.
Sweet, touching words from David. He is really in love with Caro. And a funny story :lol:

Credit to Rory sensing that both of them will be better off with a different lifetime partner and pulling the plug even though it was extremely uncomfortable in the public limelight

^^ Yeah but he could've done it without being a complete and utter coward. (Think it was over the phone with no hint there was anything wrong beforehand?)
Sure, this was emotionally avoidant behaviour. Maybe there was a hint, we don’t know or she didn’t acknowledge the hint as she was in love. But at the end of the day, better outcome for all involved, including any potential kids

How are Wozniacki and Nicole Gibbs friends? So random. Definitely lowers my opinion of Nicole in any case.
This was my biggest question too when I saw the bachelorette party, just can't see where it would stem from.

She is friend with Serena and may be it is for that..she was also at Caros party before..
Even if this is the case, why are Serena and Gibbs friends? I like Gibbs but Serena was a megastar while Nicole was way off the radar playing NCAA, I just don't really get where they overlap to form a friendship.


Anyway congrats to Caro he's definitely an upgrade from Rory!

this must be kinda weird for serena. the others are childhood friends, but is serena friends with the rest?? i mean serena is a social person but it must be weird hanging with your rivals (and ula)
I doubt it considering she is a social butterfly. Venus always stated that Serena would make friends easily, because she is not shy. Besides this was about her friend Caroline, and so she was just being there there for her.
