The reason for me returning to Canada twice in one year? A wedding of course. My older brother finally proposed to his girlfriend of almost 10 years and they set the date for August.
When he proposed last year my tickets for my flight home in December were already purchased. If not I would have cancelled that trip and just gone in the summer. Oh well, it has been nice to be home twice in one year. David and I apparently brought the rain with us as it rained for a bit on their wedding day. Besides that our whole trip was mostly sun.
The wedding took place in Toronto with the ceremony and reception being held in a restaurant that proved to be a perfect venue for the size and feel of the wedding. It was intimate with no more than 100 people in attendance. I prefer smaller weddings I’ve decided. I’ve been to some pretty big ones and just felt like another face in a crowd. The ceremony was a good length as well. They were married by a long time friend of the bride’s family. I did a speech that went over well, or at least that is what people said. I had a great time and I especially enjoyed seeing my extended family, some of whom I hadn’t seen in years. As you see I donned my garden party outfit, any excuse to wear that fascinator again.
