Hilary and Calvin got married in August on a day that started out cool and cloudy and ended up really hot during the ceremony at the top of Mount Tolmie. The heat was worth enduring for a sweet ceremony in a gorgeous setting. I loved Hilary’s unconventional custom-made dress. Also awesome – a bunch of men in kilts, including an uncle playing the bagpipes. This wedding was a lot of fun, laid back, and full of surprises.
I kept hearing that Calvin loves to dance and was looking forward to seeing some moves at the reception. Hilary and the wedding party stole the show though with a surprise for Calvin: a choreographed dance, which featured a medley of pop songs including the Spice Girls and paper masks featuring Calvin’s face. The Calvin masks made a return later in the reception when everyone wanted to wear them while dancing. And yes, Calvin can dance. And Hilary and their guests weren’t too bad either.
