Wedding in the Hills

Friends of ours got married at the most beautiful location this past weekend - it was just 45 minutes north of the city in Quebec's beautiful Gatineau hills.

The trees are basically on fire at this point in the season and the bride and groom were married on a ledge overlooking the valley. It was absolutely breath-taking to say the least.

I think shows like Four Weddings and Say Yes to The Dress can cheapen what it means to get married. Not only are you supposed to get married but we've been made to believe that Β a wedding is a competition that you have to be the BEST at. And we're so used to seeing pictures of "perfect" weddings on Pinterest that make you think a wedding has to fit inside a template which screams magazine catalogue. Don't get me wrong - there's no wedding show or picture of DIY wedding favours that I wouldn't get sucked into... But when you see two people do it for the right reasons... it's really refreshing.

I think what I mean to say is, it's just so lovely to see close friends get married. Congratulations to the newlyweds!!
