i do!

Being a lady in my thirties, I’ve been to quite a few weddings over the past eight years (including my own) and all of them have been in the Maritimes with the exception of one. I pay a lot of attention to the details and have noticed there are a lot of reoccurring themes going on. This is in no way disrespectful because I have loved it all, but I does make me wonder if it’s just a Maritime-thing or if everyone get’s down and parties for the bride and groom like we do here.

Over the weekend I attended a friend’s wedding and the best part about it was that the guest list included my whole family. Despite the weather, the day was perfect. A mini-reunion!

I am excited to attend a good friend’s wedding at the end of the summer in Montreal… and with no pressure to the bride; I am curious to know what it is going to be like. Will there be dance circles and sing-a-longs? Sweet Caroline? Will there be a family member dancing on the table and a sports-commentator announcing the arrival of the bridal party? Will the toast be more like roast?

I am planning to work with my friend Shannon (my wedding photographer) this summer as her photo assistant at a couple of local weddings. It will be fun to get into the trenches and observe a few weddings like a fly on the wall. Watching strangers having a great time celebrating someone’s special day will hopefully inspire me to be more involved in event planning as a part of my career. Happy wedding season, love is in the air. –xo-meg

It’s our last day of vacation in Florida (let’s not count the travel day tomorrow). We’ve had a blast… and I will be the first to admit, Florida is damn F I N E. This trip was not on my radar of places to go but our friends convinced us, and I am glad they did! I love California, I dream of living there in all its sunny glory however I have now made a little room in my heart for the east coast (Gulf Coast). HELLO SUNSHINE. Hello warm. Hello Florida.

I am in denial that we’ve barely entered Spring back home. It’s going to be cold and dreary. Dirty and brown. I think I need to start thinking positive thoughts and write lists of ‘things to do’ when it eventually warms up. I have a hard time imagining people live is this climate all year. People say you’d miss the seasons… really? Not so sure about that! I will take sunscreen over snow pants. Humidity > windchill. I would have a yard with a pool, a few palm trees and an ocean in walking distance. Bien sur!

But enough day dreaming for now… I will edit the 150 + photos and focus on capturing some great moments back home. -xo-meg
