I officiated at a beautiful wedding yesterday held on the terrace at Louis’ on the university campus.  You couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to have a wedding outdoors.  We danced and ate until well after midnight!  It was absolutely amazing.  Jordyn grew up across the street from our house and our daughter Tamara babysat the Friesen children for many years.  They are like a part of our family so to be able to do the wedding for Jordyn and Mason was a privilege.  For me there is always lots of preparation time as I like to make each wedding ceremony special to the couple that is being married.  It was worth every minute of preparation.  Jordyn’s grandfather was a minister and Jordyn’s mother gave me some of his sermons that he had written over the years, and included with those were some wedding ceremonies.  I was able to take parts of his ceremony done many years before and make it part of his grandaughter Jordyn’s ceremony, even though he passed away quite a few years ago.  That made the day very special for Jordyn and her family.  Mason comes from an incredible family as well, and he is just the nicest guy you could meet.  He is also the funniest and most exuberant guy as well!  He loves people and he loves to have fun, to laugh and to dance…which he did alot of!  It was one great amazing weekend with the Friesen and Loy families!
