In a small town, midnight isn't really 12 AM.

Remember 20-30 years ago, everything in our family was babies, babies, babies. So it only stands to reason that now it's weddings, weddings, weddings.

Four weddings in five weeks.

This puts the pressure on the wedding planners to come up with something different to make the event unique. Dallin (and her entourage) managed to pull that off quite nicely. The ceremony was on a Thursday, after dark, in candle light, and the reception was the next day.

This of course meant it was after 10pm before the ceremony started. It was after 11 when we got to our hotel room and we were all hungry. So let's order something in. Not. A quick glance through the phone book showed us that the booming town of Quesnel closes down by 9 pm on a Thursday. Closer scrutiny revealed that Boston Pizza was open until midnight. Yay!

At 11:10 I placed the call to make my order and received this reply, "Sorry, we've decided to close." I guess midnight doesn't mean midnight in a small town.

Lighting the candles and torches in preparation for the after-dark ceremony.
The setting was beautiful to begin with, and enhanced with lights and candles.


There were enough flashes going off that I managed to get a lighted shot of the bride walking down the aisle.

Imagination was needed for the ceremony visuals. The ceremony included traditional Irish Hand-fasting and was really cool and unique.
