Wedding preparation Sunday, July 13, 2008

Sue and Stuart discuss potential locations for wedding photographs July 10 at Carruthers Point in Kingston, Ont. High water levels in Lake Ontario have dramatically reduced the size of the beaches, leaving many areas inaccessible.

Wedding activities kicked into high gear Thursday when Stuart and Sue arrived from Ottawa with her parents, who had flown in from Moncton, N.B., that morning.

The main task for me that day was to go out to Carruthers Point, where they were to have their wedding photographs taken, to clear out some of the underbrush so that the area would be accessible to people in dresses and tuxedos. Stuart, Sue, my Dad and I all went out there to scout out the place. (We had a limited number of tools available, though, so Stuart, Sue and my Dad cut the brush back while I took photographs.)
