We three have been friends for 12 years! Pierre and Ariel have been together for about 6 of those and we have had lots of good times with them as a couple. They recently moved not too far from our neighbourhood so now hanging out with them is not only fun, it's also super convenient :)
Stéphane was the Best Man so we had a few responsibilities that day. Our #1 priority was to get Pierre to the wedding on time and I am happy to say that we succeeded. Stéphane and I took Liliane to her grandparents' earlier that day so we were footloose and fancy free, if a little schvitzy - man it was hot.
The ceremony took place outdoors with the happy couple tucked into a japanese-lantern bedecked gazebo. The bride came down the rose petal-strewn aisle to the theme song from the French film Amélie Poulin and accompanied by her two parents. The weather was beautiful (although did I mention it was hot?) and aside from one or two issues (it wouldn't be a wedding without a couple of last minute problems!) things went pretty much according to Ariel's detailed, very organized plan. Stéphane stood by Pierre and handed over the rings when he was supposed to, I did a reading and took lots of pictures from my front row seat.
