The Big Day


I don't have my hands on many of the pics from the big day yet.. but thought I'd share the one I do have. Here is Evan thanking everyone for a terrific day. We had tons of support from friends and especially from family. Everyone was accommodating of our wishes for a relatively waste-free wedding, even if it meant lugging crates of rented dishes and glasses around. Impressive. We had a beautiful wedding cake with red currants from the bushes in the garden behind us (the reception was in Evan's parents' back yard). We ate quiche made from local free range eggs and spinach from the garden, wine from the Okanagan (that's as close as we can get, ah well..), and even some Ethiopian-style home brew mead. A good time was had by all.
