Been busy over the last few weeks as we get married, took a week off hidden in the mountains of BC and then returned to Calgary to get back into our regular groove.  It’s been really hectic but a lot of fun.

Our wedding was in a mountain up around Abraham Lake, Alberta.  We chartered a helicopter company to take us to a little nook above a beautiful mountain lake.  It took six trips to haul our 20-person wedding party to the mossy outcropping.  The pilots gave us a great ride, even following a fantastic sepentine mountain valley river for a short while.  From the destination’s ledge the view was spectacular: a green, glacial mountain lake sitting at the bottom of two enclosing mountain chains.  There was even a small glacial waterfall on the nook that we used for all of our pictures.

There’s a surprising amount of work (and stress) to organize a wedding- even a small one like ours.  I can say one thing for sure: it’s definitely worth it.
