Before getting our shaves and haircuts, we grabbed a coffee next door to John’s at The Human Bean. They are a locally owned coffee shop that serves all kinds of delectables. Check out their site, or just go down. They are a great place to relax, and they serve all kinds of Fair Trade and organic coffees.
Sebastien from SA Photo accompanied us around for the moments leading up to the big event, and did a fantastic job of capturing these wonderful moments. Thank you, Sebastien.
We then made our way to Cobourg’s Buy and Sell, a really cool pawn shop, to get the swords for the most amazing wedding photo shoot. As you probably guessed, that shoot never happened, but the folks at the store were still awesome to deal with and were extremely accommodating. Give Adam a call at (905) 377-8889, or head down to 47 King St. W in Cobourg and meet him in person.
Well, it looks like I’ve overshot another post. I guess I’ll have a part two, and maybe three coming out soon. That will depend on Mrs. Birdman and whether she wants to do one of her and the girls getting ready.
I didn’t realize that I had these photos, and looking back through them, I couldn’t help but think about my amazing friends, and how lucky I am to have them. Since hooking up with a photographer, I understand that pictures are important to people for preserving memories, but it wasn’t until I looked through my wedding photos that I realized just how much good photos truly mean. I have sat here, flipping, smiling, and occasionally crying while looking over what was the greatest day of my life.
I get it now, baby. I get why you always want a picture whenever we do anything. I’m sorry I ever groaned when you pulled out your camera, and said “Okay, now you get in here beside me.” Sebastien and Ruby have given me something here that I’ll never be able to repay. Not in a million lifetimes. I think about the emotions I feel, mere months after the wedding, and I know how important they will be in 5, 10, or even 50 years.
I also want to thank my groomsmen, Joe, Randy, and Dustin as well as my honorary groomsmen, Steve Tackaberry and Chin Daddy for making
myour day go so smoothly. I know we had a lot of help, but if it weren’t for Tack, I would have been running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off for two weeks prior to the wedding, and Chin was sober enough to make sure we had enough booze to properly entertain our guests.
This brings me to the one half of my Groomsmountain (thanks, Kari), Aaron. He came from BC, and constantly went above and beyond what was expected of anyone. I’ll never be able to thank him enough for his perpetually cool head, his big heart, or his friendship. He and I have been through a lot in the short time that we’ve known each other, and there isn’t a day goes by that I don’t appreciate him, and all he has done for me. I love you, buddy, and if there’s anything you ever need me for, say the word and I’ll be there.
Even though we have spent our lives charging up the wrong side of the hill,
