We had our second wedding today. It was for one of Alberta's relatives. With the last wedding starting so late (2-3 hours after the proposed time) we decided we'd plan for a late start so we wouldn't have to wait around in a stuffy church. The wedding was supposed to start at noon so we left promptly at 1pm. Unfortunately we didn't account for Independance Day Weekend Traffic and ended up missing the entire ceremony except the closing remarks. After that we headed straight for the reception. I felt like a wedding crasher. This one seemed a little more like the weddings I know (but then again I missed the ceremony) The bride was in a gown that I could undoubtedly see in the U.S., the cake was tiered and there was a tossing of the bouquet. The groom and his guys sang barbershop quartet style to the bride and there were plenty of toasts and remarks from family and friends. Similar to the other one, the music was loud, the people were dancing and it was definately a celebration.
