I had vacationed in British Columbia in 2002, visiting Victoria, Vancouver and Whistler. It was an amazing trip. I marveled at the beauty of every place I went, from cosmopolitan Vancouver to the wilds of the train ride to Whistler, prior to it getting 'gussied up' for the 2010 Olympics. I just knew that my youngest would love to visit this spot.
So, when he and his fiancee decided to have a destination wedding in BC with a few close friends and family, I was excited. Many of my friends questioned foregoing the big affair with a few hundred folks, but this was the bride and groom's day and I thought they should do what would make them happy. As it turned out, they got to spend the entire day with us and actually got to sit down and enjoy a meal (I know you have seen weddings where the bride and groom spend the entire time wandering from table to table and then sudenly realizing that the day is over).
The site of the wedding was Hatley Castle on the grounds of Royal Roads University. Here are some photos from the day.
