Ashli and Patrick, Alliston Ontario Wedding
The the last six pews of the church were filled with children, and I didn't quite understand what was going on. There was an adult or two in the mix looking like field trip chaperones, and I instantly put two and two together. I knew Ashli was a teacher, but I didn't realize until then she was teacher of year. These little adults in ties and party shoes were her students, they had Friday afternoon off to be at Ashli and Patrick's wedding, and they, like myself, were in for a treat. You see Patrick has a smile unparalleled to that of any other man I've ever seen on a wedding day. He grinned until there was no more room for both the grin and his eyes, and as Ashli walked the historic aisle of their church, his eyes disappeared into his grin. A smile so candid, so infectious, he had the vaulted room full of people smiling wildly, never more delighted for two people in history.
