When friends get married



it was a beautiful wedding in yorkville, toronto; the weather was spectacular, the music was touching and the ceremony perfect. and the dancing. oh the dancing. my feet are going to be sore for a few days – but it’s a small price to pay to the dancing/dj gods who happened to play all the best dancing oldies you could ask for at a wedding. (my absolute favourite!)

it’s pretty amazing when your friends get married. it makes you believe in a love story because you’ve had that special privilege of watching it unfold right in front of you.

when i think of the group of us all getting older over the years, going down different roads doing different things, it brings me a sense of comfort to know that you two will be there together, just like it should be. i feel so blessed to have been included in this amazing day.

here’s to the happy couple!! ❤

Road Trip

We’re off on a road trip this weekend to see two wonderful friends from grad school tie the knot! The suits and dresses are packed and we are ready to dance. Cliff respectfully declined the invitation in lieu of spending time with my parents and sister’s family 🙂

Have a great long weekend!

Wedding in the Hills

Friends of ours got married at the most beautiful location this past weekend – it was just 45 minutes north of the city in Quebec’s beautiful Gatineau hills.

The trees are basically on fire at this point in the season and the bride and groom were married on a ledge overlooking the valley. It was absolutely breath-taking to say the least.

I think shows like Four Weddings and Say Yes to The Dress can cheapen what it means to get married. Not only are you supposed to get married but we’ve been made to believe that  a wedding is a competition that you have to be the BEST at. And we’re so used to seeing pictures of “perfect” weddings on Pinterest that make you think a wedding has to fit inside a template which screams magazine catalogue. Don’t get me wrong – there’s no wedding show or picture of DIY wedding favours that I wouldn’t get sucked into… But when you see two people do it for the right reasons… it’s really refreshing.

I think what I mean to say is, it’s just so lovely to see close friends get married. Congratulations to the newlyweds!!
