Easter Weekend Wedding

Driving Up to Kelowna

This past weekend we drove up to Taylor’s hometown of Kelowna for his sister Jaime’s wedding. On the way I took the requisite family car portraits.

A couple of hours out of the city and we were in the snowy mountains!

Kichou always knows when we’re getting close.

“It’s okay, I’ll drive the rest of the way,” Kichou says.

The ceremony was at a fancy penthouse apartment. Sym really liked the aquarium.

I bought the dress for her at Zara the other week and I LOVE IT. There’s a similar one for grown ups at Forever 21 but OF COURSE it’s not available on the Canadian site >:/

Which reminds me…

Since we had a few hours to kill between the ceremony and the reception Taylor had the brilliant idea of going for ice cream. And yes, he has Blizzard in his beard here.

The reception was fun. Truth be told, I normally haaaaaaaaaaaate weddings (pls see: my elopement). I hate assigned tables, I hate having to wait until it’s my “turn” to get food, which is always lame anyway. I hate when you’re forced to sit through the inevitable slideshow. HOWEVER. Jaime’s reception was not a drag at all. There was no seating chart, you got to get food whenever you wanted (and it was good!), the slideshow just played and you could look at it or not. I have to say, A+ wedding reception Jaime, I’ll definitely come to your next one. KIDDING ;P

Father-daughter dance :*)

Symphony signed the guestbook for us.

She also drew a bunch of pictures in a little book I brought for her. Stuff like this.

Oh, Sym.

Anyway, we ended up leaving early (i.e. 10:30) because Sym had a headache, and I ended up getting sick on the drive back to Taylor’s moms’ house. The next morning Sym was the lucky recipient of THREE Easter baskets, but we didn’t get any pictures because had to quickly pack everything up so we could head home. It was a very nice trip, but not super relaxing, so I’m extra glad I took Monday off as well!

      I’m super jealous of Sym’s dress! I’m also bummed there aren’t any good pictures (that I’ve seen) of my whole outfit; it was very cute.
