This one time…at band camp…this cute saxophone player had eyes for a hunky tuba player. Things never aligned though and they graduated high school never having been a couple(much to the dismay of both mothers). Then…many years later when she was now a band teacher and he was doing some sort of grown up HR thingy….they both found themselves single. Their mothers got involved. A first date of toboganning lead to another date…and then we couple years later a proposal–at the same hill where they had that first date. Don’t you hate it when your mother is right? But, hey…you gotta love a happy ending
So, they got married in Saskatoon a couple of weeks ago. Things went off almost without a hitch…one chipped tooth did make everyone happy to have a dentist in the bridal party, but aside from that it was blue skies all day. I have to mention that I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard during a ceremony. The priest who officiated was a riot. The man should do stand up. And, it set the tone for the rest of the day because the bride and groom could just not stop smiling. A very positive start to a marriage if you ask meI also thought it was awesome that the bride waited in the music room before the ceremony. I couldn’t help noticing that the artwork from the students held some good advice…We also managed to sneak away to the very same hill where they had their first date. If you know me, you know I am a sucker for a location with meaning
A fun night for sure…and I should mention that this groom is also Bob’s cousin. Soooooo…this bride is a new member of the out-law clubThere are only male cousins on that side of the family, so all of their wives like to laugh that we belong to an exclusive club. Truth is…it’s mainly a drinking clubbut we are super excited to add another member to our ranks!!! Congratulations to Ivan and Teri!
