peter: she had funny looking boots, jenny: he was funny looking

jenny and peter; one word to describe the feel and pace of the day is smooth, and i’m not just talking about the soft serve ice cream that they enjoyed. from the start of the morning to the “end” was steady, relaxed, and elegant.

a few months back, jenny, peter and i went out for dinner and there we bonded through our cats (yes any excuse to talk about my cat) and peter’s sense of sarcastic humour (and for those who know me, we all know thats a bonus) from the first email that jenny sent me up until the very day, i have realized more and more how thoughtful and creative she is. the little things she does for everyone and of course peter himself are truly one of a kind, and we couldn’t be happier to be able to discover these little things with them throughout.

ps jenny + peter! we still need to go to our sushi dinner!

who knew boston pizza would be so fun!

lets not forget to mention the amazing place that they got married at – tiff light box – first year its open! i’ve always been curious as to what it looks like inside.

who said what? and what are you trying to say? :p

jenny enjoying her soft serve as you can see

you’d think that the celebration was over after the “wedding,” but nope, off to an awesome casual bbq with all their friends and family, SO sad we couldn’t make it :(

uwera + john – a day of heat, and i'm not only talking about the weather

once again, back to my favourite city in the world, nyc!! this time we got to spend it with an amazing couple, uwera (way-ha) and john. we flew in and went straight to dinner with the both of them at a malaysian restaurant, there we shared some good food and definitely some good laughs. topics of conversation included the military, as john was in the army, messy closets, cats and dogs (with photos provided), random last names, and meeting “the one” when you’re drunk. 3 and a half hours later we realized the restaurant was closing and we haven’t touched base on any plans for the wedding (oops!) we walked outside and we STILL weren’t done with each other, we stood outside the restaurant talking till they turned off all the lights us. “you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here” basically.

it was a VERY hot few days, about 100 degrees! but our couples always make the reality of it all, much less painful :)

we got to witness a very important and interesting african tradition for a marriage, a gusaba; where the groom’s side of the family go and negotiate with the bride’s side for her hand in marriage. in true rwanda form, this could take up to a week, this was a few hours.

there were negotiations for each sheet of fabric laid on top of uwera

it was beyond hot that day

uwera trying so hard not to cry and ruin her makeup after her bridesmaids had some really nice things to say about her :)
