My Brother’s Wedding

Nicholas L. M. Allen

Sept 6, 2023

I went back to Saskatchewan for my brother's wedding this past long weekend.

I had the pleasure of returning to Saskatchewan for my brother’s wedding this past weekend. It was a beautiful ceremony, and I was happy to make the trip back to act as a witness to their union. 

Even with the late-night driving I was more than happy to waste my time in the vehicle for my big brother’s wedding. 

The drive was uneventful, except for when the sun was setting. The smoke made everything look so ominous in the dying light it was hard not to think about the fires while driving home. 

I didn’t help much for the wedding, but I did join my parents for the trip to get the cake. I was kind of disappointed I didn’t get to try any, having to leave before supper and the iconic dessert.

Another area I was a bit more involved with was the photography. I took photos for them during the ceremony and plenty of photos with different family members after. It’s so nice when I am able to apply skills from my job in my personal life. 

I haven’t had a chance to look through the photos yet, but a few of them looked really nice on the preview! Hope they turn out just as well when I look at them on the computer.

It was a small group of family that was in attendance for the short ceremony, and it made it feel all the more special to be there. My nephews were sure chaotic while taking photos and during the ceremony, but also adorable. They were so talkative and the youngest was held by my older brother while reading vows.

I look forward to meeting the newest member of the Allen family as well, he should be due soon. At the latest, I’ll definitely get to meet the little one during Christmas time. I sure am amazed at how quickly my little nephews are growing. I’m almost a 100 per cent sure the oldest is going to be taller than me by the time he is 15. 

I wish them both the best of luck going forward and know they will make a lovely couple for years to come. Congratulations Donovan and Christina!
