|Deni and Courtney arrived from Edmonton a week ago, Sunday.|
|Three sisters: Darlene, Jeanette and Deb.|
|Sure smelled good.....and it tasted great!|
|It was a lovely, late afternoon, gathering where the minister guided us through our roles.|
|Walk the walk!|
|Courtney's brother, Matt, Courtney and mom, Barb.|
|Everyone was hungry so we dug into the chilly.|
|Both families had the opportunity to get to know each other.|

|Ready for the bride's arrival.|
|Courtney looked absolutely lovely!|
Was Deni surprised? Oh YES! Pleasantly so!
|After a kiss and good look at his wife to be, Deni and the group followed the photographer to numerous locations for desired photographs.|
Because this blog would run too long, I chose to show a few photos of the formal evening now and to follow up with a more substantive blog, on the formal wedding itself, in the days ahead.

|Ginette witnesses the event.|
|Matt concurs and agrees to sign as a witness too.|

And, to Courtney and her family, it's a pleasure to have you join our family. We feel very blessed.
Thanks for dropping by.
