You know the saying, "life is full of surprises"? It really is.
Canoe cuff links for the wedding - what a nice AND smart
touch! Coming from passionate paddlers
themselves, not surprising!
Ray even made the paddles for the guest to sign. Isn't it
obvious Ray thinks and breaths canoes? I think
I found a kindred spirit!
The happily married couple, Ray and his lovely wife Jenn,
hamming it up for the photographer in a
classic red cedar canvas canoe.
Look familiar? Much like Ray and Jenn, we were getting
married almost at the same time and location.
Who would have known?
Post Script: After getting their permission to share this story, I personally spoke to Ray to get some more details. Here's another kicker. We both planned to get engaged at the 'peak' of something, on a canoe trip no less. Anita and I, on the highest point of Ontario, Ishpatina Ridge. Ray was originally going to propose on top of Silver Peak, (Killarney PP), but due to getting a dog the week before, couldn't go on a canoe trip with their new young Burnese Mountain Dog. So instead, got engaged to Jenn at the peak of the Lookout Trail in Algonquin. Oh, and one more thing. I almost had a coronary when I found this one out. I failed to ask them which year they got married, as I was so scattered brained when I found out we practically got married on the same day. Yup, the same damn year! 2012!!!! (Excuse me, I think I'm going to faint!)
