I am sitting in the hotel in Prince George, BC and finally putting the photos from the wedding on my computer, so I figured I would give you guy a recap
The whole reason for our trip up to Kitimat, BC this summer was for my cousin’s wedding. Well, it happened this Saturday on a beautiful sunny day. The clouds had cleared after a morning shower to shine on the happy couple. Congratulations Kaitlyn, and Steve!
Every family has traditions and ours is no exception. My Mom and her family moved to Canada from Scotland when they were all kids, all 8 of them with their parents… I couldn’t imagine.
We have Horseshoe girls… who present the bride an upside down horseshoe to bring them luck in their marriage
We have a Family Song… As far back as I can remember my family has done a dance to this song at family functions, it is by a Scottish band called, The Proclaimers. I am sure most of you have heard of them… if not here is a refresher!
I love it! It reminds me of the whole Miller Clan I grew up with, and how much love and support we all have for each other!
The night was filled with many fun moments, and memories…
Family photos every time you turned around…
Speaking of dress-up, my uncle built this great wall to use as a photo booth, there were frames with cutouts and personal wedding photos of the bride and groom’s families, and photos of them as kids. As well as the wall there were props! The veil was one of them… (as well as the pig nose you see on the table to the right of my sister) we got a lot of hilarious photos throughout the night, but I am pretty sure I am not allowed to show a lot of them 😛
I can however show this one, as it is Picky Hubby and I! My Uncle is so talented!
There was a very special dress-up portion of the evening where one of my uncles brought out costumes that he and Kaitlyn and he wore MANY years ago in the Canada parade. Both their families owned the pizza place that I have talked about on the blog, and to try and get the public’s interest and some “free” advertising they dressed up as Pizza Fairies and sang “That’s Amore” while my uncle played the accordion. It became another tradition… of the parade, and telethon, and other public events that they would perform together. Kaitlyn as always was a great sport, laughing and belting out “That’s Amore!”
…and there was cake! You may remember this cake from this post…
It was a great time! With lots of dancing, visiting, eating, laughing… and kissing!
It is obvious how perfect my cousin is for her groom… and her groom for her.
