Now that work is finished the past week and a half have flown by with getting things together for school, baking, kayaking trips (photos to come!) - and wedding related events. yes. weddings.
Last weekend specifically was full of wedding loveliness, with two friends very sweet wedding day in Morden - pictures of which do not exist because I was too busy dancing around with glow sticks. yes. mennonites love glowsticks - and then my very beautiful cousin's engagement party the following evening.
It was a gorgeous, sunny evening at Assiniboine park, sitting on a tucked away little patio with family and watching the sun set through the lovely prairie grasses.
It was a delightful, calm summery evening with the best food and cake and a chance to spend time with my lovely girl cousins, who just happen to have matching nose piercings - you can tell we're related!
Needless to say I'm pretty pumped for their wedding. As a general rule I'm pretty pumped for anything that invovlves pretty things, dresses and dance parties. I'm quite certain Andrea introduced me to Tyler's parents as "this is my cousin, she's super excited for the wedding." yep.
So, so very lovely!
They have the sweetest engagement story, something involving surprises, explosions, hills and an inevitable yes! Although I think it happened a little more gracefully than that all sounds.
And finally, everyone's favourite part, cake! They did a very lovely job of humouring everyone cutting it, since this will be the only cake photo op!
The cake was amazing - and I have high cake standards - chocolate with raspberry buttercream in towering slices. So very delightful!
I cannot wait for their wedding, and all the lovely little things leading up to it. Next up is the shower, and mass amounts of cupcakes and other treats, perhaps you'll get a peek at it too! xo.
