We went to a wedding at the Warplanes Museum in Hamilton, Ontario- it was really neat! The wedding itself was in a meeting room, and the reception was in the museum itself. (the groom is a pilot-so that was the connection) The bride and groom, at an earlier date, had taken a staged photo- he was beside the Lancaster(big, rare airplane) (my husband actually had a hand in restoring this one- there are only 2 left that actually fly-this is one of them) in a WW1 pilot's uniform- she had a flowing dress and her very long hair down, flower on the side- and the scene was one of her saying good-bye to her pilot husband, maybe for the last time. The photo was done in a tonal sepia print- very, very cool. (I think they used it as their engagement photo). The place cards were printed boarding passes, and the little gift at each seat was a little wooden airplane (the bride apparently made all of them- from kits, but still!!!!!). The music was upbeat-with some of the war songs thrown in. If you are planning wedding- this was very interesting. The service was impeccable. The setting for the reception was fascinating- we were sitting there, between these airplanes-couldn't beat that. We stayed in a Holiday Inn Express overnight (only had to tell one group-a family, it looked like, to go and yell and chat outside their own door)-and came back home on Sunday. Today, I had planned to go into school (it does start soon) but I need to take my daughter to a birthday party- at this child's family cottage- up near Chaffey's locks!!!!! So- can't really drive her there and then go to school, then come back and get her (at that point, I am closer to Perth or Westport) So that messes up a day. Well, I will go in tomorrow- and go and see what's up. Sean will be taking the little doggie in to see what is wrong with him- he has a hard time keeping his food down, and he coughs. I am so worried it is something really serious. I won't be able to talk about it if it is.
