This is very exciting news in the land of Adam & Julie’s wedding plans. We’ve got our hands on a Boler for our rapidly approaching bushparty camping wedding! [For those who are out of the loop, Boler is Canadian for “awesome 13-foot-vintage-egg-shaped-camping-trailer”] Like most guys, Adam has been incredibly easygoing about this whole wedding shebang…he […]

After the excitement of our engagement wore off a bit we started to think about what we wanted in our wedding and how we were going to afford it. With Matt in school earning a small stipend plus my part time work while I finished school I didn’t think we would have enough for a […]
