What a spectacularly cold day! I’ve never been to Dubai before, but from what I am told it could be characterized as warm; hot even! So if I thought that it was cold here after weeks of adjustment, I can only imagine what it must have felt like for Sheena and Kyle who came home for a few weeks to get married in Fernie. Now, Sheena is a local so its not like she’s never experienced this kind of cold before, but I have to think that it came as a bit of a shock after regularly experiencing temperatures of +30 C. What I found truly amazing was that she was able to be out in the deep-freeze (-30 C) in a shoulderless dress and not even look cold! Duane and I were both bundled right up (thank-you long-johns!) and it still was uncomfortably cold.

But enough about the weather – we felt really blessed to be a part of Sheena and Kyle’s wedding. A beautiful couple with beautiful venues and backdrops and best of all, right here in our home town. It was an absolutely perfect way for us to close out 2008!

I had never been in the Anglican Church in Fernie before this week. It was definitely a pleasant surprise to find such beautiful architecture!






 Ok, ok. I know I mentioned the cold. Did I also mention that it was beautiful?











Stay tuned in the next little while for a new twist on the slideshow! (Hint: It has something to do with our new cameras!) Also, another reminder to keep the votes coming for our contest. I am sure that the winning couple will thank you!
