On September 10th things were well enough here, with my Mum that I felt safe making the 2 hour drive and overnight trip for my childhood friend Andrew's wedding. Andrew and I were neighbours as kids in Montreal, we are 6 months apart in age (I'm older) and we've known each other forever. In 1987 my family had to move to Texas for a couple of years and when we came back to Canada, we relocated to the National Capital Region. No matter where Andrew and I have been in our lives we've always known where the other was, how to get in touch and we'd drop life in an instant for the other. It was important for me to be there and I'm glad I was able to make it.
Not only was it Andrew & Yan's Wedding day, it was Andrew's 35th birthday, and Chelsey's 100th Day Celebration. What an auspicious day!
Here is a small selection of my shots from the day, a few you already saw when I posted Andrew & Yan's wedding sampler happy dance.
Andrew must of had a word in with the weather gods, what a beautiful day and a beautiful setting for a wedding
