When my sister Deniel moved to the lower mainland a few years ago my parents and brother were pretty sad. Micah was so sad in fact that he soon followed them and moved into their basement suite. Before he made the move my sister made a new friend Sharalee. One day they were visiting at Sharalee’s house her friend Megan was there as well. Sharalee found out that we had a brother and immediately yelled to Megan – “Hey Megs come and meet your future sister-in-law.” It was a pretty bold prediction that miraculously and lucky for everyone in my family came true!! So last August (yes I am THAT far behind in my blog posts!) Megs became Micah’s wife and our sister. Being the youngest and only boy I imagine it was pretty daunting for Megan to enter the world of our loud and always opinionated family of mostly girls. So when the wedding planning began Deniel and I told Megan we were happy to do whatever so put us to work. This wedding at Morgan Creek Golf Club in Surrey BC was a family labour – weeks of collecting cobalt blue glass bottles and vases, milk glass bud vases, doilies, silver trays, organizing flower orders, making bunting and banners and seating charts. but you do for those you love and we love them very much!! Megan loves deep blue and daisies so that led the theme and we went from there. I channeled my inner florist and with the help of good friends Erica of Rook & Rose Floral Boutique and Vanessa from Verbena Floral Design planned the floral decor and with the help of friends we did the arrangements and bud vases for the table and ceremony. My sister made all the pinwheel m&m favours, the banners, bunting, flower girls pinwheel bouquets and much more. I got out my glue gun and made the boutonnieres and mom found the perfect vintage jewelry set and reconstructed it into earrings and necklace for Micah to give to Megan at their first look. It was the most incredible day and being four months pregnant at the time I cried a lot. I was so honoured to be asked by my brother to stand up with him and when my sister came down the aisle as a bridesmaid and we looked at each other and looked at our brother it was a little ridiculous that I didn’t have any kleenex with me! Looking back at this day I am so thankful for my amazing family and most importantly for the beautiful Megs who is now Auntie Megs to my girls. You can never have enough sisters in life I am blessed to have another one. So congratulations a year later to my little budder and his Megs.
