The Happiest Day of Their Lives


It was wonderful, kids! A day full of love and laughter. This is my Sunshine Girl, Stephanie. All her life, she has been my sunshine.

With Gord, as the vows are read out :
"This hand you are holding today is the same hand that
you will reach for in good times and bad....."

Listening with her heart......

A forever vow..........

Mr. and Mrs.

My fave photo from that day
See the beautiful woods all around their house?
Deer showed up at the wedding,
and eagles circled, a very promising sign.

Stephanie and her wild mother,
who refuses to be tamed

Cutting the cake

The Dance

So much love

And let us not forget the doggies
who were part of the ceremony
and the entire celebration.
They got pretty tired, but didnt want to miss a thing.
This is Sanchez.

Here is Chloe, as regal as any dowager,
already tired but refusing to buckle.

All good things must come to an end. So sad!
Stephanie sent me this photo of Sanchez, 
who loves me a lot, and who was sad when I left,
looking balefully through the gate.
This shot almost made me cry!

It was a day full of love and laughter, it rejuvenated my heart, and made me deeply happy.

Steph and Gord live outside the city surrounded by forest, and near a small lake. It is a heavenly spot, a perfect location for a small wedding, and gave me a dose of the forest, which I have been missing. That night, I dreamed of the sea, with such longing. I woke up knowing I must get there soon for an injection of the Wild.

Steph and Gord, I wish you every good thing. May the happiness you feel today be yours for many decades to come.
