The many views of Love

We are home. Husband and wife. Married.

I didn’t think ‘being married’ would really be all that different than living together. I thought it would just be a formal/legal kind of thing that didn’t change anything.

I was wrong.

Something did change. Shifted. Moved. Tilted. Expanded. Deepened.

There is something different in this place called husband and wife. Something deeper. More solid. Stable. Safe. Complete.

I am surprised. Awed. Excited.

I am home.

The entire week at Therapy Vineyard & Guesthouse was amazing. Natalie Winsa, our host and wedding planner made it all so carefree, so fun, so beautiful! Her partner, Kasey Alladin, ensured that everything we tasted, from the Friday night snacks at the Open House to the wedding buffett not only was delectable and delightful but visually stunning too. And the team at Bench 1775 Winery were amazing. While Sonya, Aaron and crew aren’t actually responsible for the incredible views (Thank you Universe!), they definitely did everything possible to ensure we could savour the vistas from every point of view no matter where we stood on one of their decks or in their tasting room.

Surrounded by incredible scenery, long vistas across the lake and billowy white clouds above, no matter where you stood at our wedding, every view spoke of friendship, family and above all, Love.

There isn’t a single thing I’d change. Not a single moment I’d re-do, except of course, I want to experience it all again and again!

I’m still savouring. Still processing. Still breathing into the beauty and awe of it all. So rather than put words to my feelings and thoughts, I’m sharing photos from our wedding most of which have been provided by the amazing Tamara Z. Thank you Tamz. Your thoughtful ideas on how to capitalize on the views and space and your help in setting up made everything a perfect dream! Between you and Tim W. Sr. this girl never had to worry about a thing! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

  1. So awesome. You guys look so happy. Al was single for 15 years before we got married. I asked him after if it was weird calling me his “wife”. He said he liked it very much.

  2. Congratulations to both you and Charles! How wonderful for you both to have made that transition – I too know there is a difference though it is so difficult to catch the essence of it in words. You both look so happy; it makes me feel joyful to look at your photos.

    • And I am so grateful for you Lorrie. Tamara has an amazing eye — all the photos were taken with her IPhone. Ross, our official photographer, is still wading through the 2300 photos he took! 🙂 I can’t wait to see them. in the meantime, I shall, live with my heart full of beauty… and laughter! ❤


  4. I have been thinking of you and your husband so often. What a beautiful day you had, I am sure. And, the new adventure begins…. together. And, what is better than that? Sharing life with someone. And, I agree, there is a depth after the vows have ben said and the promises made. Oh, I wish you such happiness and love, now and always. xo

  5. This is beautiful. Reading this blog has been a beautiful journey. Thank you for sharing.

    I may not understand the love part, but I don’t have to in order to see other people happy.
