The Theme (or “The Bride Who Never Wanted to be a Bride”)

A rather long post by Jaime

First of all, before anyone starts thinking that I am doing this against my will, allow me to clarify on the title of this post: have I always wanted to get married?  Yes, absolutely.  Have I always wanted a wedding?  Not until recently, and now that I do it’s not at all for the reasons I thought I would.

This is Fezzik (aka the cat)

So by now you’ve hopefully learned a little bit more about the bride and groom as well as our siblings, but no Jaime & Chris blog would be complete if we didn’t spend at least one day’s post on The Fezz.

If it weren’t for Chris’ offer to wed her, Jaime would be well on her way to becoming the proverbial “crazy cat lady”.  We got him as a kitten in October of 2010 and we both love Fezzik, but Jaime is more than a little obsessed.  And for good reason – he is virtually the coolest cat ever to walk the earth.  He’s actually like a weird combination of Chris and Jaime’s personalities: laid back and chill one minute, completely and utterly insane the next.  He keeps us on our toes!  But here’s the full scoop…

The court house before cars.

In 1817, a courthouse and jail for the District of Niagara was built in an isolated section of the Village of Niagara. It was designed by William Thomas, Toronto’s city engineer, who is well known for some of the finest decorated Gothic Revival architecture in Ontario.

He also designed the Brock Monument in Queenston.

Today, the court house is used by the Shaw Festival as one of their theatre buildings. Continue reading

The Newlywed Game – By Katie Adamchick

As one of Jaime and Chris’ close friends, I thought it would be fun to conduct this very informative interview.  Besides being the epitome of hard-hitting journalism, I wanted to give everyone a sense of Jaime and Chris’ personality OUTSIDE of the blog (ie. how they act around their friends) and give you a glimpse into their relationship.  The best way I can see to do this is the newlywed game!  A game made famous in the 70s, by asking spouses to answer questions and trying to match the answers, this game seemed like the perfect outlet to provide important information about this couple, as well as get to the bottom of some questions I know you were all dying to hear the answers for.
