Get me to the rocks on time ...

Last Saturday, my dear friends, Amy and Mickie,  finally did the deed -- they got hitched.

Better still, they chose to be married on the rocks at Hartlen Point.

It was a lovely, intimate affair, as I was one of only four guests, not counting the photographers.

As they exchanged promises, a knot was tied in a sash, linking their hands, for each promise made.

Their profound love for each other was a beautiful thing to see, as they celebrated their union.

OMG they looked beautiful !

After the ceremony, we headed to nearby Fisherman`s Cove to take more photos.

The forecast had been uncertain all week.  We were prepared for rain, with a collection of rainbow umbrellas.  They proved to be a marvellous prop.

After a wonderful lunch at Emma`s, in the Passage, we took a boat to McNab`s Island.  There, we explored the ruins of one of the two forts on the island.

Did I mentioned that Remi, the dog, was the ring bearer at the  wedding ?
Walking down the island, we made our way to the grounds of the abandoned "Teahouse", for a "dessert picnic".

Amy and Mickie had made lovely, chocolate, tofu cake and brought a tiny stove to heat water for tea and coffee.

I am so grateful to Amy and Mickie for letting me share this very special occasion with them.

Without a doubt it was one of the best days of my life !

And I think Trey would say the same.

... and they lived happily ever after.


  1. Happy happy news!

    Now for the obvious .... "...before we knew, the marriage was on the rocks!" Sorry, just way too obvious. But then, I AM the Queen of Obviousness. Happy for your friends


  2. I am lovin' this! Glad it was one of the bestest days in your whole life. I can feel the joy pulsating all the way over here. May they, may they indeed, live happily ever after.

  3. Thanks Bonnie.

    ITC -- You are forgiven.

    Kathy, I sure slept like a log at the end of the day.

  4. Thank You Dearest for forgiving me. It looks like it was a blast of a day. Your photos were amazing especially the red building and the ladies in front with the umbrella and I absolutely adore the last shot of the boats at sunset.

  5. This post was a wonderful gift to your friends. May they read it again with joy on their 50th anniversary.
