We decided to take a road trip for the honeymoon portion of our next adventure together. Maggie is a fan of trees, mountain biking, camping and the northwest, I’m a fan of Maggie plus all that. We set off north with two weeks and a destination of Whistler in mind, all points in between open to shredding, and getting shredded, the Canadian health care system was stellar! We had “unseasonably” nice weather the entire time and fully enjoyed the trip.  This is a quick tour of our trip as I left my camera in the bag to fully enjoy the time.

So this has been a long time coming, Seven months actually. Ski season comes and I turn into a snow zombie, nothing else matters. Ah the throws of addiction.

Maggie and I got hitched after 8 years of being “together” it was great to celebrate us with our family and friends. We are so happy together and it was nice to share that in a public and official way. I wasn’t prepared for how emotional it was going to be, I am so happy to be married to such an amazing person and to spend our lives together. Writing this snippet every cliche’ in the book came to mind, and they all seem so true. I guess they’re cliche’s for a reason. The simplicity of the language lends itself to repetitive mantras trying in vain to describe the human experience.

We had a couple friend photographers come out and make some photos for us, as well as some attending friend photographers. As you’ll see we didn’t have the whole event covered but we did get the parts we felt were important.  If you have any images from the day we would love to see them, if you don’t mind please email them to Maggie or I. Our families and friends helped a ton with the wedding from cooking to setting up and taking down, playing amazing music, serving food, decorating, we wouldn’t and couldn’t have done it without y’all (that’s right, y’all…)  thank you so much!

Big thanks to Jocelyn, Fielding, Eliot and Malia. All of whom made great photos for us. Thanks a ton folks!
