I was never the little girl who dreamed of her perfect wedding day. I was a tom boy - who loved to canoe. Somehow the idea of canoeing down the "aisle" stuck. And it was pretty freakin' amazing.
Did you resist the urge to go all Pocahontas in "Just Around the Riverbend?" Because I would have totally just started paddling like mad and been all, "you don't own me, world!"
Dad was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Corps of Engineers. Mom & Dad got married at Ft. Lewis Washington after the war, and his men decorated this earth mover as their "carriage" from the chapel to the reception. This is a colorized black and white, and I especially like how they drew in a rainbow in the background.
