Man no comments after yesterday’s blog. Burn. 🙁
Today is mine and Brent’s three year anniversary. How weird. Doesn’t seem like enough time to have two kids in already. We were going to start trying to have kids this fall and then we had Silas so then we were going to try for a second this fall but then we had Ikey so now we’re trying not to get pregnant this fall. It hasn’t seemed like it’s been three years yet but it’s also seemed longer in other ways. I do wish we had more time to ourselves before we started the parenting thing but it’s OK. We’ll have them out of the house when we’re younger and still able to chase each other around the house in the nude….did I just say that? Three years ago I was sitting in a salon, sipping wine and getting my hair done for the wedding. It looked so pretty.
Awe, we were so cute. So many girls have the same dress as I did now. It wasn’t so popular back then. Now I look usual and unoriginal in my photos. Pooo. The guy marrying us is one of my most favorite people in the world. He’s not actually….ordained. We got Courtenay’s husband to sign the papers for us. I kinda believe the legalities of it aren’t what’s most important. I wanted someone SUPER special to lead us in making this commitment. At the very beginning he did the whole marriage speech from The Princess Bride. Everyone from my family laughed and then when we showed the video at our Manitoba reception no one laughed or got it. Must be a BC thing. It’s weird to see Brent with that goatee on his face…he hasn’t had one since that day.
Yes, I had a man in my wedding party…and right beside him is the lovely Courtenay from 8minutes…all of the dresses you see were hand made. My mom made the two middle ones and my sister Jennie made the one on the far right (worn by my lovely sister Juliet). I had mine made too but from an expert. Those shoes the bridesmaids were wearing were 10 bucks each from Wal Mart and I made all the necklaces.
This amazing cake was made by my sister Jennie. Jill decorated it. Those are big broken chunks of chocolate that they tiled on with icing. It was the most original and best tasting cake I’ve ever witnessed at a wedding. Moist cake with either mocha whip or a pecan filling. It was a surprise too. Mmmm. That’s Cornelius in the background. He served it to everyone saying “I’m a vending machine”.
We didn’t have a normal wedding at all. It all took place in the Ramada Inn Ballroom. Ceremony and everything. People sipped on their wine while watching the event. Everyone already seated at tables. As soon as the ceremony ended the food was served. Big stations of food. East Indian, seafood, and picnic food. Yummy. The one thing I would have changed is that we would have held off on the food until we returned from taking photos. We slipped away for 30 minutes to take photos at Castle Fun Park. It was silly but so…us…or me. By the time we came back people had gobbled everything up almost. Except for the raw oysters…I guess they were all chicken. I wish I had my actual photos on my computer. They weren’t digital. One of these days I’ll have to scan all those in.
Hardly anyone tinked on their glasses to get us to kiss. The one couple that WANTED it to happen…booo. This is a kiss that we were challenged to do during open mike. Watch your hands Brent!!
We honeymooned in Canmore and it was beautiful there. Glorious fall weather, an amazing suite., horseback riding, fancy food, a bottle of champagne in the jacuzzi every night *sigh*. Brent and I always look back on that fondly. One day we’ll go back and stay there WITHOUT children.
Marrying Brent was one REALLY good decision I’ve made. He truly is a great husband. I was scared out of my tree that day but it all worked out well.
And there’s me being as lady-like as I possibly can be with food in my mouth and a camera pointing at me. Sorry mom…
We aren’t celebrating today. I don’t think. We’re going to have my mommy watch the boys while we go out for lunch or dinner this weekend. I hope he at least gets home early today.
