Ashley had always dreamed of having an outside wedding ceremony and even though the rain was falling from the grey skies above, she was determined to have the wedding of her dreams. And I am so glad she did. When the ceremony started we passed around the umbrellas and made the best of a wet situation. The rain didn't dampen the spirits of anyone who came to celebrate this marriage. And if rain on a wedding day is good luck, then these two will have a lifetime of wedded bliss.
On a beach overlooking the lake we gathered to witness Ashley and Dawid begin their life together. Under a huge willow tree they exchanged vows and rings, then sealed their covenant with communion and a kiss. In the garden we took photos and had a good laugh. And on the Sicamous we continued to celebrate into the night with good food, good music and great company. By the end of the night I had made two new friends.
