“I know that one day, Veronica and I are gonna get married on top of a mountain. And there’s going to be flutes playing and trombones and flowers and garlands of fresh herbs. And we will dance until the sun rises. And then our children will form a family band and we will tour the countryside and you won’t be invited!”
…of course you’ll be invited! April 21, 2012: best day ever.
I mean honestly, look at that backdrop… THE MOUNTAINS, people. SO gorgeous! And it was the best weather, ever. Whatta surprise, whatta surprise.
I’m still waiting to get more pictures from our friends who were there, but I couldn’t hold out any longer on posting these for you to see!
Andddd…the ring he proposed to me with wasn’t even the real deal! It LOOKS real, but Tyler wanted to make sure that I loved it before he gave the jewel-man the go ahead. (I get the real mac-daddy in less than two weeks!)
Sure looks real to me.
How convenient that I had my nails painted with glitter on that day?!
Our Saturday (post engagement) was rounded off with lunch in downtown Banff at one of my favorite places, Saltlik
And a turkey burger (with only half a bun)
The six of us stayed at Hidden Ridge Resort, and spent the afternoon walking around town, hitting up The Fudgery, the Hot Springs and of course, the liquor store. Lots of celebratory drinks. LOTS.
Dinner was at The Grizzly House. ohmygosh it was fantastic. It was a fondue place that is a must-see when you visit Banff!
I got the Alberta platter which consisted of beef, buffalo, elk and venison.
And I tried rattlesnake, wild boar, and ostrich. YUM!
We really had a great time there. The funny part was that each table was equipped with a phone, and our placemats had a layout of the dining room, so you can dial a table and talk to them!
Obviously, I got really creepy and went to the restroom and used the phone in there to dial my table. “I’m in the bathroom…bwahaha” God, I’m a perv!
Mmm, meat. On a hot stone. Nom nom nom.
Our group! (Thank you so much you guys for being there for that special occasion! It means the world to me)
Not much detail- I like to keep that event in my life a little close my heart, but I shared some snippets!
SO fabulous!!!! 🙂 How was the ostrich, my friend has been trying to get me to try it! Scared! 🙂
It was SO good!!!
beautiful pics! you look so happy:)
my favorite part of this post is the Anchorman quote. you would make that reference. lol
