Man I’m lucky I have cool in-laws. The Trawicks are prettty prettty sweet, although they are the first to self-deprecate themselves! Not only did I marry an awesome fellow, but in tow came his great immediate family, his extended family, and crazy-town cousins (one of whom happens to also be one of my best buds).
Anyhow… way back in May, dear cousin Bryan married the lovely and superfun Danielle in a stylish and nonstop fun wedding in Cochrane, Alberta. B & D live and work in Amsterdam, and both love to travel the world, so the wedding reflected this in a lively way — from a shot of vodka to kick off the dining, to Indonesian food, to a late night bratwurst bar! The guests were from all over the world to celebrate their union.
The food and drink flowed well into the evening, the dancefloor was bompin’ and the bride’s father was charmingly boogying into the night! And of course, Coco Cake sole proprietor and cousin-in-law L.K.Sung made cupcakes and a cake for the occasion!! This was my first (and, let’s face it, likely the last! – sorry Randy!) time I will haul a Honda Element’s worth of equipment, supplies, storage and cake stand on a 13 hours drive from Vancouver to Calgary! I baked everything at my own cousin Jenine’s place (thanks again J!)… I must say it was a bit of a stressful time, just because I was so worried about everything turning out! I am so used to my own oven’s temperament and my workspace and kitchen ,but I thought of it as a challenge, and of course I knew how happy it made B & D that I was making their wedding cakes! In the end I was thrilled with how everything turned out and I turned that stress into dancefloor energy. :)
The cake topper is of Bryan and Danielle on their little canal boat in Amsterdam! When Rich and I visited last year, we had a great time being cruised around on it, as well as being treated to some wonderful hospitality.
Many many congratulations to my cousins B & D!!!
Love, your Chinese cousin
