Yesterday, I mentioned a wedding Paul and I went to in the Greater Toronto Area on Labor Day weekend. Matt and Andrea were joined together on August 30th! What a beautiful day that was. Here are some pictures as my ever so thoughtful brother-in-law (Peter) installed them on my hard-drive. Thanks Pete! Allow me to specify that all of the pictures that will be posted here from Labor day weekend are mostly taken by our friend JJ since the camera we brought lacked in battery power before the wedding!
Paul and I and a few others were staying at Andrea's parents place before the wedding! What great hosts they were! I was amazed how everything seemed under control and yet Andrea's mom, Evelyn, sowed the dresses for the brides maids and the flower girls, of which there was a total of nine! But that is not all, she sowed every napkin holder as well and made sure before the wedding that we all had meals to eat, and Paul and Evelyn both took time to get to know us and care for us! I know I must have forgotten other details they put together. I think what amazed me most was how it all seemed very manageable for both of them. As for me I love organizing an event but being more of a big picture girl, details seem to pass me by. Let me give you a glimpse of what the week end looked like!
This is Andrea (the bride) and I the day before the big one!
These are the napkin holders that Evelyn (Andrea's mom) sowed. Evelyn discovered the art of delegation and so I had such a great time folding napkins in an artistic kind of way! I didn't realize how therapeutic it could be!
Here she is! This is Evelyn. I don't think I need to tell you that is the only picture of her. Working away! meanwhile, JJ, Paul (my Husband), and Dan (Andrea's brother) were being artsy themselves!
There were handsome groomsmen surrounding the radiant groom....(Paul, A.J., Matt(Groom), Paul Aurich, and JJ. Sharing in his very joyful day...
There were beautiful little flower girls.....This is Alicia, Andrea's niece. There were three others.
And there there was the whole party! Andrea looked breathtakingly beautiful!
Needless to say Paul and I had a great time together and with our friends. Rejoicing in each other's union is so refreshing.... I had a great time sharing this weekend with you today and hope you enjoy taking part in our little adventures!
