To have and to hold...

Proud parents Wendy and Grant

I thought you might like to see a few photos from Emily and Brad's wedding. Brad is the younger son of my good friend Wendy, and I've known him since he was a wee boy. Wendy and I have been friends for 40 years (!!) I know, I know - you're probably in shock because you didn't think I was even 40 yet, did you?! ha. Wendy and I became friends at university and despite being on opposite coasts most of our adult life, have remained close. She and her hubby Grant are both retired from the RCMP now and have just finished building a beautiful retirement home about an hour from here. This was the site of Brad's wedding. Emily and I have become good friends as well, through Choir.

She has a beautiful soprano voice and joined the Fredericton Ladies Choir several years ago. So I felt close to both the bride and groom - how lucky am I!
It was a lovely wedding. Small, very simple, just what the couple wanted. The day was perfect- warm sunshine, a little breeze, not too hot. BOTH bride and groom were radiant - you could clearly see their love for each other. Brad was glowing just as much as Emily was! I didn't take a lot of photos but did get a few good ones, I think. Emily's dress was not the typical white wedding gown but I loved it. Isn't it beautiful?
Best Wishes Brad and Em for a long happy healthy life together!! Thanks for including us in your special day!

Hi Linda! I think you took some great photos of your friends wedding. The bride's dress is very different but I love it. It looks like it was a beautiful wedding day. I think every day this summer was a perfect wedding day don't you? I've been away a lot so am checking around blogland. I hope you've had a good summer. Take care. Pam
