Mutual Weirdness Forever

Last week we celebrated the wedding of the beautiful and weird Melissa (Melon) and Kyle!

Ah, young love.

The wedding happened during the week so unfortunately Evan and I had to work and we missed the ceremony. I’m sad about that but we arrived just before dinner started and if you ask me that is the best time to arrive to anything.

Evan was looking SHARP. I like the cut of his jib.

The wedding was in the beautiful countryside of northern Pickering, and actually took place at a biker club. That sounds like it would be a weird spot for a wedding (though everything about the wedding was pretty weird so not really a big surprise there), but it really added to the whole experience. The grounds were beautiful and the night was hilarious. Perfect all around.

Amen!

My weirdo and I

It was quite the party with all our friends!

Most of my closest friends were in attendance and it was so much fun to hang out with everyone. I mentioned this in the bachelorette post but Melon is my good pal Dawn’s younger sister, so we have all known and loved her since she was just a little tyke. She has grown into a beautiful lady!

I looooved her dress. She was stunning. Kyle was alright too;)

This was the first wedding I’ve been to since Evan and I got engaged and although I have always loved weddings, this one made me so excited for my own! (I’ll have to do an update on wedding planning, but the gist of it is, I am so excited to actually get married but planning is more annoying than I expected and I wish that part was over.)

I took no pictures of dinner but it was totally overshadowed by the dessert because OMG OMG OMG.

Dawn and Melon’s mom Brennie is baker extraordinaire and went on a serious baking mission for the wedding. The spread was ridiculous. I could not get enough.

Perhaps you can see where Dawn and Melon get their sense of humour from. I can’t wait to see what Scarlett (Dawn’s daughter) is like when she grows up. She’ll be the next generation of weirdness.

It was a gorgeous night, but we hung out inside for a bit as well. We obviously had to check out the clubhouse. Kyle’s dad is VP or something of the club, so hence why the wedding was here (though it would be an amazing venue for anyone and I think they should start renting it out!)

I always assumed the Sons of Anarchy was sort of cliche and didn’t really portray an accurate motorcycle club (not that I know anything about them), but after this night I have a bit of a different opinion. It felt like Sons of Anarchy inside that clubhouse. Some of the bikers were around (they were the bartenders, haha) and each of them totally could have been a character on the show.

They were SUPER nice. They answered all our annoying questions and made the bull’s skull blow smoke out its nose every time we asked.

Pretty cool.

We spent most of the evening outside though. With the usual suspects in attendance you know the usual shenanigans went down…

There were some weird props around, like giant antlers, and one of them was a giant dinosaur head that you could put on your own head.

It was the size of a person and it was highly entertaining to watch people on the dance floor staggering around wearing that thing.

Other highlights included an ice sculpture…

And launching sky lanterns…

Such an awesome wedding activity. And it is a lot more difficult to get them to take flight than you would think.

It was a really, really great night. One of the most fun weddings I’ve ever been to. (And I wasn’t even drinking! Well, just a couple.)

Congrats again Melon and Kyle, you weirdos!!!

  1. Great wedding but too bad you missed the ceremony. It was really nicely done with a reverend that spoke simply and clearly. We were all smudged and Kyle and Melissa were hand fasted on the summer solstice. And yes, the desserts were amazing!!!! Love your blog ❤️

  2. Oh my gosh, I got married last June, and I totally know what you mean about the wedding planning! While I loved planning for my wedding, there are so many annoying details to figure out, and questions from people, that it ended up being more stressful than I would have liked! Our day ended up being perfect, and better than I could have imagined 🙂 But looking back, there are so many things I wouldn’t have worried about! Let friends help! 🙂
