The Emerald City. Part 2

This is a continuation from my other post which you can find here.

I think I may have enough photos for a Part 3. =)

A few of these photos were taken in Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in July. I fell in love with Canada! The weather was beautiful, many people were friendly and so easy to talk to, and the food was really good. The only thing that was lame was the traffic. Especially during rush hour. And I thought Houston traffic was bad!

The last few photos were taken at Mount Rainier National Park. July was a little too early to hike the trail, the whole thing was covered in snow. My family and I hiked as far as we could!

Karma + Tiff and the Hippy Hoedown. Part 2

Let me say again that I did not take any of these photos. Wish I could say I did! They were taken by the talented photographer, Jonathan Steinberg.

The hall where my sister and her husband got married didn’t look like much from the outside, but on the inside it was beautiful and unique. It had a ‘cloud’ ceiling with lights inside and a curtain of lights against one full wall. My family and I folded (Senbazuru) and hung 1001 paper cranes from the ceiling. In our culture, it signifies luck and longevity. It is believed the extra crane brings extra luck.

As with any wedding, there were many things that went wrong! The music didn’t work right before the wedding party was supposed to walk down the aisle, guest backed out at the last minute, the cake fell, and we forgot some decorations. But at the end of the long day, we were happy (and relieved!) about how everything turned out.

Congratulations Karma and Tiffany!
