The Wedding, Part 2

Weddings are much like Christmas...you spend so long preparing, anticipating, looking after the tiniest details to make sure everything is perfect... then all of a sudden, it's over. Within a few short hours the entire thing is over and all you have left are the memories. And hopefully some good photos.
But it's worth all the effort and preparation, when everyone gathers together to witness the happy event and surround the couple with love. We were so happy to finally meet many of the good friends we have heard about for so long. Three of the four attendants travelled considerable distances from Montreal, northern Ontario and Alberta to be with Ian and Tiff for their special day. All four attendants are best friends from High School days or earlier. It was evident from the speeches given that they all share a very special bond of loyalty and close friendship that has endured for years, and will no doubt continue to do so.
One can't help but wonder where the time goes, when seeing one's own child grown and taking on the responsibilities of marriage. It seems like just yesterday that 10 year old Ian was wearing a cute little tux at our wedding. Time is moving too fast, methinks....
I cannot believe that I didn't get a family photo with me in it- I guess that's what happens when you're the person with the camera... at least the "real" photographer took several of our family- we'll have to wait a few weeks to see those.
Since it was Thanksgiving weekend, the wedding meal was a full turkey dinner. The first course was a delicious Harvest Squash cream soup and the warm Chocolate Almond Coconut Cake for dessert was a fine way to finish off ! And then, of course, there were the Truffles...
My favourite moment of the day? Watching Ian's eyes "fill up" when Tiff came down the aisle....
Peace,
Linda
Love is patient, love is kind; love never ends.

Oh, how sweet. I thought of you last Saturday as we were at the Pyramids. Did everyone love the truffles. The food is so so here and I could use a chocolate fix. I can't wait to see more pictures.

Holy cow! One never knows what surprises can turn up on these computers. Beautiful affair! I was thinking of you Linda while in my post-op bed at DECH. I also had a happy time with wonderful staff from Oct. 7 to 12th. I am a happy woman. Lorraine
