This summer, we had the pleasure of participating in a momentous occasion with our family.
Pictured here is Sabrina’s new husband Damien along with Sabrina’s mom, Val, Val’s parents (Gladys and Erwin Knuth), Sabrina’s brother, Justin and Sabrina’s Dad’s parents ( Marian and Herman Schafers).
On August 27, our niece, Sabrina (Shane’s side of the family) married Damien on the farm where Sabrina was raised. It was a truly wonderful wedding, beautiful in all aspects, despite the cooler, rainy weather. The cloudy conditions made for great photos!
We were all amazed by how the rain stayed away during the ceremony. Here are the brand new Mr. & Mrs. shortly after.
Just after signing the important papers.
The site where Sabrina and Damien were wed is on the same piece of ground where Sabrina’s great grandparents had farmed. There is a lot of family history on this piece of land to which the Pastor referenced during the ceremony.
A beautiful borrowed car used during the wedding.

The reception took place at the Rich Valley Agriplex. What a magnificent way to transform a hockey arena!
Sabrina with her cousin (our son, Devin).
It is a family tradition that if the younger sibling gets married before the eldest, then the eldest must dance in a tub. We have no idea where this came from, but Justin was indeed a good sport!
Couldn’t stop myself from exercising some artistic license with the camera!
