What a wonderful time for all of the family and friends of my Son Gordon and his new bride, Natalie. I have enjoyed this gathering of my family from Edmonton, Whitecourt, Calgary, Armstrong, Chetwynd and Chilliwack. It is great to see my grandsons and how much they have grown, and to see my daughter and her squeeze. I value and enjoy the benefits which come from family, and I am always thankful for the time that I am able to spend with each of them. I can feel the pull of my elders as I watch the next generation grow as parents themselves.

Natalie and Gord were married in a beautiful Chapel on Adams Road near Yarrow. The old pews and the wooden interior evoked a feeling that their marriage was based on solid foundations and good worksmanship. Their friends who acted as part of the wedding party were elegantly attired, and helped to emhphasize the beauty of the ceremony.
quence, and the sincerity of the vows reemphasized the couple's love for one another.

The ceremony and the vows were beautiful to watch, and I was glad that I was in the front row, so that I could wipe my tears of joy away....
The Churches' garden afforded an excellent venue for family photos. The weather was perfect, and it was again great to see the different families taking the opportunity to get group photos.
