Two weeks from today Andre and I will be heading out on the TransCanada to Victoria (ferry’s already booked!) We’re getting married!
After planning a gazillion weddings before this (Shuswap, Hawaii, etc.) we finally settled on Victoria at a place called the English Inn in the Esquimalt area. English Inn is exactly that, an English inn that has some lovely grounds and we’ll be married outdoors in the Sunken Garden, followed by lunch al fresco – organic greens, wild BC salmon, prosecco, and vanilla bean cheesecake with a fruit salad and mint.
My brother and his wife and my nephew live in Victoria – he’s a professor of geography at the University of Victoria. They, along with a couple of aunts and uncles, my parents, and our party will be the only ones there… one big table, like a rustic Italian wedding.
We are having Foxgloves Flowers do our arrangements, ballet roses, Katherine roses, some seasonal whites, and seeded eucalyptus. We also, thanks to our laurel wreath monogram wedding invitations, will have laurel wreathes on the bride and groom chairs and perhaps winding down the middle of the table. I’ll post some pictures here later. In two weeks.
I’m thrilled but how do women do this without getting sick to their stomachs? I am nervous beyond my wildest dreams!
