I guess there is no need to really write a post when one gets married. In summary, we have been together for 16 years common law, Cheryl proposes one day out of the blue, a year later we are getting hitched for “real” up in Egmont, BC @ the Westcoast Wilderness Lodge with 60 of our closest family and friends. WE wished we could have invited more. Continue reading
after 16 years of common law we made it official with family/friends and of course our bikes on August 14th, 2013
The honor guard sets the scene and mood….perfect touch…thanks to Cheryl’s Friends/colleagues for doing what they do best.
We gave each other 2 rings. One was the commitment band we exchanged back 15 years ago and we both now have a diamond band representing our marriage.
In the mean while here are a few pics that highlight our wedding adventure from August 14th 2013….
It won’t be long until Cheryl and I take the next step after living Common Law for 16 years into the world of Legal MARRIAGE. After all the fuss being made over in Russia about the anti gay movement I thought it would be a perfect post in honor of our right to be with whomever we want in Canada.
Today was Vancouver annual Pride Parade and Cheryl and her colleagues represented the RCMP
and marched along with all those colorful human beings expressing their right to Love anyone they want. Isn’t that what it’s all about????
One of the views at the Westcoast Wilderness Lodge our wedding venue! Here for the night.
Not too much longer until the day we get hitched. I mean why not? We have only been together almost 16 years….;-) Here is our post from our scouting out the venue ride last year SUNSHINE COAST onward to the venue POST here and here is a video showing you WHY we picked the WESTCOAST WILDERNESS LODGE
We rode up on our 2010 BMW 650′s and this year we will be riding up on our ’13 BMW F8′s. And, YES of course we will have our pictures taken with our bikes. ;-) The sunshine coast of BC is not that far from the lower mainland, but once you get there you feel like you are in another world!

Once again there are twists and turns in the life of Cheryl & Leslie. After 15 years as many who read this blog Cheryl proposed to Leslie and we are going to get hitched next summer 2013. Yep, in Canada we too can join the sector of marriage and it’s legal. I know this is a hot topic for many but at this point in our lives and careers we really have little patience for those who struggle with any two people who love each other and want to show their commitment in whatever fashion they choose.
