I’ve known Alex since we were wee little ones running around the playground playing tag, or swinging on that good ol’ tire swing at Cliff Drive Elementary. (I’m sure they’re banned for kids now…). We went through grade school together, in and out of the same classes, and then completely separated after graduation; her going down to the US on softball scholarships, and me running away to Nova Scotia – where half of my heart still lies.
After almost a decade, I was absolutely thrilled to hear from her and that she was getting married to Tyler, one of the kindest and gentlest souls out there. I met up with them in their Olympic Village neighbourhood one evening to go grab ice cream and get a few shots for their engagement. As I write this post (it’s back dated!) their wedding has already happened, and let me tell you… it’s one of the most amazing weddings I’ve been to.
