As promised, here are a few more engagement photos taken by the lovely Sophia Dorozio--the poor girl had the daunting task of trying to make Roger and I photogenic!
Here's some pre-wedding prep. Mama G with her oh so tasty wedding cakes. About a week before the wedding we loaded the cakes up into her car and drove them down to Calgary where we popped them into a freezer at my parents house. It was definately worth it. I've never, ever, EVER been to a wedding where there was a 7-10 person line up for the wedding cake!
Handpicked pumpkins for the wedding.
On the Wednesday before the wedding, Roger, me and my two uncles took a drive out to Canmore to deal with some last minute issues. Here we are at the Silvertip:
Here are my uncles patiently killing time while Roger and I played around with the sound system at Silvertip. Apparently they would wander outside for a bit, then when it got too cold they'd jump back inside to warm up.
Next stop, florist:
and finally, a quick stop at A Bear and Bison to show my uncles our accommodations during the wedding:
We told the bear to stay out of the shot, but I guess he couldn't resist. Some bears will do anything to get into a good picture.
After our impromptu rehearsal at the church Thursday night, we had a family dinner at the Bonavista Peking house.
The delicious appetizer: Jelly fish, baby octopi, surf clam and some type of meat.
Bridget and Lars getting a little worried that this was all there was to eat and wondering where to get a hamburger.
This is my Uncle Francis and Auntie Gim Ai. They had arrived just 2 days ago and when exiting the plane, Uncle Francis took out his cell phone and was taken aback to find a message on his cell phone saying "Welcome to Roger's Wedding!" He was very curious as to how Roger and I could have broadcasted this message on his phone, however upon adusting his glasses better he realized that it actually said "Welcome to Roger's Wireless!"
