We had landed in Calgary some days before and now it was time to drive to Okotoks, a town about an hour drive away. Andrea and I arrived at the Cannon Estate navigating on gravel roads. We had doubts of where we were but soon the canopy of the tent emerged from behind the trees and we knew we were in the right place. Andrea and I pulled up along the gravel driveway to the sight of family and friends calmly buzzing about getting the last batch of the preparations done for the festivities the following day. The family and friends were enough to get us excited but there were a few other things that made this wedding so cool:
1) The ceremony was held in the vicinity of a gazebo that the groom's father had built himself (and was even still putting the final touches on that week). Basically he thought, "I've always wanted to build a gazebo; I guess the wedding would be a good occasion to finally get it done". I wish I could just build a gazebo
2) The reception was done entirely in a giant tent (enough said).
