Congratulations Jani and Rob!



Today was the day that my youngest sister got married. I have never seen her more radiant than she was today. She was glowing, and beaming, and smiling from ear to ear. (isn't she gorgeous?)
It is obvious how much love her and Rob share. And despite a host of things that made taking their pictures a major pain in the butt (including what has been discovered a dislocated rib on my part), I think that what we did get are amazing. (If I do say so myself...)

The Cronquist House

We started at one of the landmarks in Red Deer; the Cronquist House. It is in Bower Ponds, and it is significant to our family. It was the first house my grandfather sold when he started in real estate. I love that we got to use it as a backdrop.We also went to the water treatment plant.... seriously. The water treatment plant. And the funny thing is, we weren't the only wedding party at said plant. Anyhoo, there is a wicked awesome red brick wall at the back of the building, and so we snapped a ton of pictures there. At one point I made the professional comment of "I am so good, I almost want to vomit..." I have no idea what that means, but it did generate several laughs.
Finally we ended up back at the church for some family shots. It was a great day, and even though my mouth was so dry not even four bottles of water could help..... we got the stress of pictures out of the way before the ceremony.
The reception was so good too. I only wish that Grant could have been there with us to share their joy (and to help chase down the kids... Cohen disappeared more than once. At one point during the day he was nowhere to be found. Needless to say... there were tears. My tears. I was terrified. And the lesson I learned is....... even though people say they will watch your kids so you can go and take wedding pictures, they don't really mean it. I don't know how many times I returned to the table, and had to ask others where he was. Great feeling.
Anyhoo... here are some pics from the day.
