A few posts back, I shared pics of the gifts I'd made my friend for her wedding shower. I was actually in Amelia's wedding, so in mid-August I headed up to Vernon, BC to help her celebrate the big day (and the several days of events that came before the big day!)
Despite the somewhat sketchy summer weather Vernon (and most of the province!) had been having this year, the weather gods made sure we had plenty of sunshine for the wedding. So of course we had to hit the beach at least once...
(here's Amelia and Harrison, the happy couple to be)
(I'm hiding from the sun, in case you're wondering - I burn really easily, and I didn't want to get a sunburn 2 days before the wedding!)
Amelia grew up in Vernon, but now lives in Toronto. Since so many of us had to travel to the wedding, her Vernon friends were kind enough to host a wedding shower for her.
Later, the post-shower bachelorette party required yet another costume change... and since we didn't want Amelia to get into too much trouble, we made sure that Harrison was present to help supervise! :)
The night before the wedding, we had a BBQ at another local beach
And then is was the big day!
I love the father-daughter dance - and Amelia's dad is such a great dancer! That's his band playing too - he's also a great musician.
Amelia's wedding was amazing, and we all had such a great time. And just to prove how fun it was, we even had the cops come by and close down the dance-floor due to the city's noise restrictions - apparently you could hear the band all the way downtown! :)
