it doesn’t get any better than this.

The wedding was wonderful, the honeymoon was amazing. I am the luckiest girl in the world to be able to spend my life with Cory. We got home last night from Quebec City, where we had three lovely days and nights just relaxing, walking around looking at the fabulous buildings, and generally being in love. We both needed that break to calm down from the hectic pace of getting ready for a wedding.

The wedding itself was exactly what we wanted. The ceremony was simple and meaningful, and very much a reflection of how we feel. I swear when I walked down those stairs (we had a spiral staircase rather than an aisle) with my Dad and saw Cory standing at the front of everyone with our best men, my heart was so full of love. I was shaking with happiness and I could feel the tears building up behind my eyes – it was so amazing. Fortunately, the tension was broken as Andrew and Natalie arrived at the last second and we had to send Keith (my honour attendant) to get them in. I’m sure they felt bad about being almost late, but it was perfect. It gave everyone a chance to laugh, and gave Cory and I a chance to catch our breath, smile, and enjoy the moment.

Our reception was also just what we wanted, laid back and relaxed. We got a chance to spend time with everyone there and to enjoy ourselves. Thank you to Scott and Keith (and Rochelle) for their efforts. We’ll post more pictures when we get a chance … we have about 10 rolls to be developed and that doesn’t include the rolls my dad took.

One word of advice though, if you blush easily, don’t take the chocolate body paint your cousin gave you for your wedding through security in your carry-on. They will open it up and ask what it is in front of a whole bunch of people while the two of you turn red and try to explain it without using the words “body” and “honeymoon” in the same sentance. Oh well, we’re allowed now, we’re married.
