Home, warm home...This will be long....


Well here we are back to the REAL world..... back to Reality! The wedding is over..... hard to believe but anyway it was amazing! I will share a little bit of our week and then share a couple of pics! I don't have too many, I left it up to Tere, our photographer..... who was absolutely amazing! We left Calgary on Wednesday in the 30 degree heat and arrived in Salmon arm to rain! We go to the cabin and Manda said the forecast was for rain all week! I was like great, then I thought there is no way it can be beautiful in Alberta and rainy in B.C. it just doesn't happen! So Thursday we woke up and it was pouring..... and it pretty much poured all day! There was a little bit of a break in the afternoon, so everyone went out in the boat and did a little bit of wakeboarding. Thursday night the weather seemed to get a bit better but they were still calling for more rain! We came up with a little bit of a plan 'B' incase of rain on Saturday. Friday morning we woke up and it was pouring again! We were too busy Friday to worry too much about it except that we really wanted to set everything up on Friday.... We had lots to do so off we went to pick up rentals and groceries and so on. We arrived back to the cabin and it was pouring harder than ever but we thought well stuff still has to get done so we were under a canopy and tried to do our best and get a little bit accomplished. There were still people arriving and there were also people that were delayed on the highway due to normal highway activity but most had arrived by Friday night safe and sound! There was no setting up on Friday night because of the rain and we left the cabin at about 11 for Salmon arm. We left a few details of how things should be done and left Annette in Charge( She is absolutely amazing, and without her it would have been a disaster!) Saturday morning was gloomy, very gloomy and damp but not pouring! Then the hair appointments started at 8. Tere came and joined us and the day began....


We had the sweetest morning ever and still no rain so we thought ok hope for no more rain! we arrived back at the cabin about 15 minutes before the ceremony was to start..... no rain, the clouds started to break up a bit and it was absolutely amazing! Everything was beautiful and perfect! No rain..... Sunday morning we woke up to rain! It truly was a miracle! Here are some of the pics and when I get more I will post them!






Hope everyone has a great day, and when you are all dying off in the heat just think of the rain and cool temperatures in B.C. and you will all be fine!
