I woke up to the sound of thunder. At first I think its my imagination but then I hear it again and think there
might have been a flash of light in the sky. I can hear the rain pounding against the windows. Yup – its my girl’s wedding day and the weather is just so poetic in ways that you couldn’t understand unless you knew her.
It’s an indoor wedding and so a little bad weather isn’t going to hurt anyone. And as we all know a little rain on your wedding day is good luck! The girls and I spend the rest of the day fluttering around and dealing with make-up, hair, mani/pedis and all that jazz as we get ready for the big day. This is more than just a wedding – this is the event of the year as far as I’m concerned (I mean come on, I’m the reasoning behind table “intervention” after all!).
It was one hell of a night and I feel privileged to have been a part of it. From the heartfelt speeches to getting the groom the score for game 2 (and possibly jumping up and down when the Canucks were victorious) to table intervention yelling out the good old “BOK” …these is what we live for! All I can say is in my head it belongs on a TV commercial. Flight from NZ to Toronto: $2000….Wedding Outfit: $300…Cost of Transportation to the Venue: $3…To be there when the couple that makes you believe love ties the knot: PRICELESS.
