Note: The last week has been quite busy and I didn’t have a chance to post this until now, though I wrote it a week ago.

My friends Ken and Margaret got married a week ago this past Friday (June 22nd) and I had the honour of being the best man for their wedding. Of all the weddings I’ve attended, I think this one went off with the least number of hiccups and last minute problems. Ken and I spent a fair bit of time earlier in the week replacing all the brakelines on the 1954 Pontiac Laurentian Coupe they used and I’m happy to report it stopped when needed. 🙂

To pass the time before the wedding, the groomsmen, me and the groom, met up at one of the guy’s farm and shot clay targets for an hour or so before heading to the church. I’d never shot a shotgun (or any other firearm) before, and found it was a lot of fun, particularly as I managed to hit some of the targets.

The ceremony was very nice and didn’t drag on like a couple of weddings I’ve attended. Afterwards, we made our way to Strathmere for pictures and the reception. The food was amazing and the band was incredible. I gave the toast to the bride and groom, which, based on comments from people afterwards, was well-received. They had a trio that played music during dinner and a band for the dance afterwards. If you ever need a band for something, you should definitely consider The Stevens and Kennedy Band. “Wow!” is a good way to sum them up.
