Even More Pictures: A Kid’s Perspective

Tara and AaronAs you can see by the counter on the right, it’s been a while since we were married. Well, we finally got around to developing the last of the photos from our big day. When we were planning the wedding we decided it would be fun to hand out disposable cameras to the kids so they could participate in capturing some of the event highlights.

In Spite of Ourselves

As some of you may recall from our wedding, Tara and I sang this John Prine song together. Recently on a little vacation at a farm near Meaford, Ontario, we were inspired to record a new version for your enjoyment/amusement.

Thank You

A huge heartfelt thank you to everyone who was involved with our wedding. I for one underestimated the immense amount of work that goes into planning a wedding, and we couldn’t have done it without the help of family and friends. Apologies for the long delay in getting these out…I guess that’s what happens when two expert procrastinators get married. Plus we just bought a house.

More Pictures!!

These lovely photos come by way of Kurt Uriarte and his fancy-dancy Nikon D5000. After a couple of months of married life it was really nice to be reminded of what an amazing weekend we had with everyone. Thanks a lot Kurt!

_untitled_-1472de22Well, despite the rainy weather, some great wedding moments were captured over the weekend. We actually feel very fortunate about the weather considering the torrential downpour followed by the sweltering heat on Sunday, and the tornado that blew through Durham a couple of weeks later.

Love Birds


Our lovely love birds in the nests Tara made

We hadn’t really thought about topping our wedding pie (yes, we’re having wedding pie) with any sort of ornament until we were inspired by these irresistibly cute little creatures . We loved the idea, but it just wasn’t at the top of our ever-expanding to-do list. Until fate intervened when we attended Phog Fest , a music festival at Phog Lounge in Windsor.

Wood is Forever


Our lovely juniper heart wedding bands

When it came to choosing our wedding bands, it took us some time to figure out what we wanted. Our original plan was to make white gold wedding bands together at a workshop in Toronto. We signed up, paid the fee, went to a jewellery store to get sized and…it just didn’t feel right. We weren’t ‘gold’ people (except for our hearts of gold of course). So we cancelled the workshop and regrouped. Read the rest of this entry…


musicIf you know Tara and I well enough, you know that music is a significant part of our lives. Which is why we wanted to have a wedding that incorporated as much live music as possible. We are fortunate to have many musical friends and family and they have graciously agreed to share their gifts with us for our wedding. Read the rest of this entry…

Deep Thoughts by Tara

econest_with-treesWoohoo!!! My first ever blog entry (and marriage). First off, let me say another welcome! We are so excited to bring our family and friends together to sing and dance and celebrate with us.

Planning this event has been a wonderful opportunity to ask “hmm…how can we reverse climate change and save humankind?” Or, perhaps more realistically, how can we create a life together that is gentler on the planet? In turn, we have been inspired in ways that we did not anticipate. So as not to overwhelm you with gratuitous inspiration, I think I will write a series of shorter ‘deep blog thoughts.’ Today’s inspirational topic is the love, love, lovely EcoNest® at Riverstone Retreat Centre (where our parents and Aunt Judy will stay for the wedding).
