    We are back from our WONDERFUL wedding and honeymoon at WDW, and although I am so sad that it is all over, I am so excited to be able to share all my memories with so many of you who have helped me along the way! It may take me some time to get everything up, as I am finishing up one job and looking for another (and still planning my at home reception) so please be patient with me! I’ll update the index below each time I post something new! I hope everyone who reads along enjoys!

    Are you from Saskatoon? I was born there! Although I haven't been there for almost 20 years :rotfl:

    I don't know how long it will take to get the prof pics back....I am working on getting pics from my guests, but a lot went right back to work so they have been busy, many didn't take pictures (since we had 2 photographers) and some just might be sick of me and not answering :lmao:

    I'll try and do reviews later tonight or tomorrow night!

    Haha yeah I've only lived here for about three years though. I'm from Winnipeg originally. I guarantee it probably hasn't changed much since you were here :goodvibes

    I can totally understand you not wanting to harass your guests anymore lol. I'm just super excited to see pictures from a ceremony at the Canada pavilion. We are thinking about it as a potential location thinking that it might be a nice tie to home.

    I hope you enjoy!

    I love Winnipeg! I went to high school in Thunder Bay, so my friends and I would go to Winnipeg on group trips all the time, especially since the drinking age is lower :lmao:

    Canada is beautiful for a ceremony, and I think being Canadian makes it more special!

    Hi Lori! I'm glad you here since I loved your PJ (which you still need to update!!)

    :goodvibes

    OMG, we LOVED HDDR! I think it was even better going as a group. I don't know if I would go alone with just DH. The food wasn't that good, but we ended up going for free (I'll explain later).

    Thanks :goodvibes I don't really have any pics yet! I didn't take my camera with me on the wedding day, and well everyone else took a lot of pics, they haven't sent me any. Hopefully they will soon!

    Hahha :lmao: I still can't get over that they call it exotic!
