Andrew and I got married on a lake at my families cottage in Thunder Bay, On. August 2012. It was a simple but beautiful day. Our friends and family sharing in our small rustic cottage wedding was a moment in time I will never forget. It was perfect. My heart was overwhelmed with love for our friends, our families and for Andrew. Everything from the photographer Alvis Plavins of Bliss Pictures, our rustic homemade cakes by Kathryn, our sweet chef Rhonda from A fine fit catering with all of her fresh local creations and our officiant truly love what they do. This was really important to us in finding the right people to share in our intimate day. This passion illuminates from them and shows in their work. This energy is contagious and brought out the best in us. They truly live what they love. So thank you so much for being a part of our day!

I always wanted to get married at the end of the dock.
We are married and sealed with a kiss!! The sun was so nice. It felt like we were in our own little world.

Vanilla, chocolate and lemon cake. Delicious and rustic! Thanks Kathyrn. Andrew took these two photos as Alvis left before dinner.
The food was local, fresh and beautifully presented. The tarts were so pretty! Thanks Rhonda! Rhonda was super cute and such a good chef.
There you have it! A few of my favorite pictures. Love is fun and I have fun with Andrew and that is all that really matters. Both of us were really happy before we met each other. I think that it is important to fully be happy in yourself and love yourself before you can truly and unconditionally love someone else. It took some time but I final got it. Happiness comes from within and no one person can make that happen. Happiness in our own lives brought us to each other. Like attracts like. We compliment one another and bring out the best in each other. I am grateful for having him in my life and each day I love him more and appreciate and support the person he is and the person he wants to become.
Live today and appreciate each moment as for right now is where I want to be.
have fun out there!
