The first weekend in August was my friends, Chris and Steph's wedding. A magnificent afternoon ceremony beside Island Lake surrounded by friends and famliy. So lucky, were these two that the lingering smoke in the skies from the previous days was blown away...the views were stunning! Steph's dress was absolutely beautiful...you shouldv'e seen the look on Chris' face. Even after 12+ years these two still have that day one adoration in their eyes. We moved up to the lodge afterwards for delicious hors d'ouvers and drinks before heading downtown to the Best Western for a buffet dinner and dance. The party continued late into the evening, in fact until we were kicked out of the funtion room a little after 2am.
I finally made something for myself, a dress to wear for the day. It was an off the shoulder, fitted a-line dress made of a slightly stretchy floral fabric I fell in love with in Cranbrook months ago. Luckily it fit just right with no alteration necessary because I was still madly hemming the bloody thing the morning of the wedding whilst trying to fend off my curious children. Pretty happy with the outcome. What do you think?
