Eleanor Frances on her Wedding Day

In her mother’s garden, in the late evening, under the light of a summer’s full moon, holding hands on the brick garden path, Eleanor Frances accepted the marriage proposal of her Vimy Ridge Hero.

William Charles had just returned from a peace keeping mission after the Great War.

There, in that Aylmer Quebec Garden, on August 2, 1921, my grandparents (Anna’s great grandparents), celebrated their wedding day. I have imagined it all my life. So so very romantic.

I guess you could say that creating wedding flowers from the garden is in our souls.
