I can't believe it's been seven months since I wrote. It's been a busy seven months though and a lot has happened. The main event, of course, was Rebekah & Alex's wedding in July. What a beautiful day it was and we all felt the sacredness of the occasion. Here are a few photos to share.
This is the temple in Toronto where they were married.

The whole family
The bride and her big brothers.
With Alex's parents
Mother & daughter (it was so hot & humid that our hair turned to frizz!)
Daddy and his little girl!
Her gown was custom made. She knew exactly what she wanted. A very simple and modest dress. It did have a small train. All the flowers were fresh (the bride and bridesmaid carried clusters of Hydrangea and everyone else wore carnations. We transported them in coolers with lots of water for the 5 hour drive the day before from Ottawa to Toronto and kept replenishing the water in the hotel rooms!)
I think this event deserves a post of its own, so I will write again tomorrow and bring everyone up to speed.
