The last time I saw Jan and Mike, it was in the middle of winter, and it was to meet for a beer to discuss their wedding plans, at their favourite pub in Aylmer, Quebec where they will be hosting the big day. The snow was so deep that I was worried I wouldn’t make it to the meeting on time. Hard to think-back to those days now that summer is here.
Fast forward to today, and it could not have been a nicer early summer evening. We had a great time in Hintonburg around the iconic “City Center” complex, where Jan often visits ‘Euro-Sports’, who support their tandem bicycle needs. We had a great time, and I think we got some cool photos!
I’m really excited for Jan & Mike’s wedding, especially because it reflects so much of themselves, as individuals and as a couple. Jan (literally) runs an incredible charity called Won with One, where they enable blind or physically challenged people to compete in triathlons, through equipment and guiding. Check them out! Music is also a big passion for both of them (Mike used to play in a band), and music is going to be a big part of the wedding’s theme. They’ve arranged to have a great band, it will be hosted at a neat pub in Aylmer, and will feature a poutine truck. I’m in!
