Wedding in pictures

Ginette and André's wedding went just as planned on Saturday. Yes, we had hurricane Danny show-up at around 9 a.m. Saturday morning and he stayed until midnight but that did'nt bother anything. Everyone had fun and a good time.

I wanted so much not to cry but I could'nt help myself. I was a wreck entering the chapel.

Putting a rosary on the line the night before is suppose to bring nice weather for the wedding. I will have to tell my mom that the date on her rosary has expired.

Ginette and Denise putting labels on the wine bottles two nights before the wedding and Puss is supervising.

Getting the chapel ready Thursday afternoon.

The bride getting her do the morning of.

The bride with her maid of honor - drinking champagne at 10 in the morning.

Dave and I all dressed up (can you tell I haven't really slept in almost a week).

Luc and Liette.

Maid of honor pretending it was sunny outside.

The cake - marble pound cake.

Something blue.

Sunday morning, Dave and I hosted a brunch for both families for the opening of the gifts.

My daughter worked so hard (and long hours) getting everything ready for the wedding. I was here to help her whenever she needed me. But you know what - it was all worth the hard work.

It was a beautiful day and an even more beautiful couple.

Great photos. Sorry to hear about the weather. Wish I could have been there. Sounds like a wonderful day.

Thanks Colleen. It was very much a wonderful day. You know what, the weather did'nt bother us at all. As Ginette said that morning when she saw the rain coming down "we are not getting married to have the perfect dress, weather, pictures, or anything. We love each other and want to be with family and friends". I have never seen such a calm bride in all my life.

Sherrie, Kim, Niki, Alli - Thanks so much for your lovely comments.

Sherrie - the saying is that if it rains on your wedding day you will have a long and happy life together... with the amount of rain they got from hurricane Danny they should be set for life.

Congratulations Vickie!!! I was just thinking about you and Ginette the other day- wondering if the wedding was happening :) Looks beautiful- i adore her shoes and the cake... and that church is so special and beautiful (from my childhood memories!).

Congrats to Ginette and Andre :) (geez, wish I had the french keyboard activated!).

Many Blessings!

Vickie LeBlanc said...

Hi Eco Yogini - thanks for the best wishes. Yup, the blue shoes - that's Ginette for you; a little something different than the usual bride. She also did'nt have a veil. The cake was soooooo yummy.

Barb said...

That cake looked gorgeous and so delicious.

Loved Ginette's shoes. Does that girl have a sense of fun about her??? Barb xo

Vickie LeBlanc said...

Thanks Barb. The cake was delicious. There was no way that girl was going to wear white shoes with her wedding gown... it's just not her. She sure is free-spirited.

Gi said...

Thanks for the great comments everyone. André and I had a perfect wedding day! We did work hard to pull it all together, but it was all worth it. Thanks mom for all your help xoxox.

Vickie LeBlanc said...

Not a problem my dear. It seems like so long ago now. I love going back to the pictures and seeing that great day.
