Upcoming Nuptials

DS1 has found his soul mate – K is a fabulous person and they’re just so happy together!  Take a look at this engagement picture:141

Their friend took the pictures, and will be following them to Nova Scotia for the wedding to do the honors there.

And so the planning has started – first step for us was to meet the bride’s parents, who flew out to Alberta last week.

We had a wonderful time, and have made some new friends.

The women went wedding dress shopping – such a thrill to be included in this special day.  Here’s one of the dresses, not her first choice as that has to be a surprise – but doesn’t just seeing this make you want to get married all over again:


We had lots of fun at the shops, and couldn’t resist taking a shot of her feet:

It’s amazing what can be hidden underneath all that lace and tulle and sparkle and elegance!

Lunch at a retro restaurant helped us get through the day:350351

The real working juke box had an amazing selection of tunes from Elvis to Frank, Shania to Ian.

While the women shopped – the men bonded over beef jerky, beer and cigars:
