Our Wedding!!

Hello out there ... Yes it is true, I am writing my first post in nearly a year. What have I been up to you ask? Well ... this had something to do with it:
We are over-the-moon excited because the AMAZING wedding blog "Style me Pretty" featured our wedding on their website! Here is the LINK.  

We are still floating along on cloud 9, having returned almost a month ago, from our wedding and honeymoon trip to Tuscany and Morocco, respectively. Everything was perfect. The weather, the beyond breathtaking scenery, the wine and food, and most importantly, the people. We have taken away from this experience a truly awesome feeling of being so loved and supported by our closest friends and family, who I must say are some truly amazing people!! Many people have asked me what my favourite part of the whole trip was, and I have so many great memories that it is really hard to pinpoint just one. However, if I had to choose, I would say that my absolute favourite part of the entire three week trip was getting to spend all day, every day, with my new husband. We are both so busy in our normal lives with work and all of life's little distractions, that it was such a treat to spend some real, quality time as newly weds, reacquainting ourselves with parts of the world that we love and exploring new adventures in Morocco, a country that neither of us had visited previously.

We are busy busy with the preparations for our Canadian reception BBQ which will be held at our home in late August. We are planning more food, drinks and entertainment and we are looking forward to spending time reminiscing with those who were able to be part of our special day and catching up with those close to us that could not make it across the pond!

Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from our wedding, taken by the always brilliant Erin Samuell of A Simple Photo. I'll do a separate post on the food, restaurants etc. and another on my review of the markets and brilliant cuisine of Morocco!
