Wonderful Wedding Memories

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!

The Happy Couple

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

My beautiful Cousin who was the Horseshoe girl

 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!

Miller 500 Miles Dance!

The night was filled with many fun moments, and memories…

There were beautiful decorations… 

Family photos every time you turned around…

Cousins!

My Picky Family <3

Sister and her Boyfriend... Hi Cory!

Cory has been bugging me as to why he hasn’t made the blog… I teased him I wouldn’t put him on till he “put’s a ring on it” They have been living together for 5 years… and he keeps talking of a bachelor party…  Hey Cory, you need the ring first! 😉

It may be time… soon?? Right Cory?? I bet you wont be bugging me ever again 😉 I do however have to say this looks good on both of you 😛 (see below)

Bahaha... I love it!

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!

I feel like I should be on the Brady Bunch!

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!”

They are missing their wings, but still were amazing!

…and there was cake! You may remember this cake from this post

 

Incredible shrinking cake!

It was a great time!  With lots of dancing, visiting, eating, laughing… and kissing!

Aww...

It is obvious how perfect my cousin is for her groom… and her groom for her.

 I guess it is true… All you need is love!

12 years of Friendship and Fish!

Today was the 12th Anniversary of when Hubby and I met… I had kind of forgot, till he said he arranged for my Mom to watch the kiddos and he was taking me out for lunch.  The wheels started turning then, and I figured it out 😛  I am SO not a girl when it comes to those things!

Small waterfall on the way to restaurant

The restaurant we went to is in Kitamaat Village just outside of the town I am from… gorgeous views of the ocean from the tables.  If you are ever out this way check out SeaMasters!

Huge Halibut burger!!

 

I had a Halibut burger!  YUM!  with some Lemon Thriller tea and a side ceasar salad.

Tea to warm me up!

Hubby had a seafood platter, with halibut, clam strips, split prawns and calamari, with some Boston Clam chowder as his side.

Holy Fried Seafood!

While we dined we got to look at THIS!  I miss living by the water…

View from Table :)

This guy dined just outside the restaurant on some fish as well!

While we were out, my Mom and Thing 1 set out to cook their annual Salmon Dinner.  Every year they go through her recipe books and find an idea, and as my Mom would say, Create!

Thing 1 and Mom set the table...

After scraping scales, and cutting the slippery salmon into steaks, they marinated it in a cajun style sauce, and used her fresh herbs from the garden.  (I am not privy to the recipe, but all I can say it was amazing!)

A Fish Feast!

After supper I had a great visit with my aunt and uncle who actually introduced my hubby and I.  They had their little grand-daughter with them, and oh, I wish I could have stole her!  She is such a cute and sassy two year old!

Wow… it was a great day!  I love fresh fish, but I love friends and family more!

What’s your favourite fish to eat?
