In fact, the reception ended up turning into the roast of Kate & Ryan, with each toast bringing another hilarious and embarrassing anecdote from the past about Ryan and Kate. Even the parents got in on the act, sharing touching speeches while not holding back any great stories. Underneath all the jokes and laughter, however, are a loving couple and their loving friends.
