If you say you aren’t weird, you’re lying.
Everyone is weird in their own way, and when you embrace the weirdness, life is that much more awesome.
Weird is a good thing.
When we met Karen and Cameron in 2010, we left thinking this: “Penguin ice sculpture? That’s weird.” You see, Cameron had intended on building a massive ice sculpture for their wedding. Penguins was the theme for their wedding, so Cam wanted to smash a home-run with this ice sculpture idea.
So, missing a few details, our first impression of the pengiun-ice-sculpture-wedding was, well, weird.
We basically envisioned a totally tripped-out wedding. Hunter S. Thompson greeting at us the door with penguin shaped jello shots. Oompa loompas in penguin outfits roller blading around the reception with trays of absinthe. And the whole kumbaya revolving around a humongous penguin ice sculpture that would be spraying Bacardi out of it’s stout.
It would be weird. It would be awesome.
Even though the penguin ice sculpture never actually happened, hearing of a wedding that had something a bit different and a bit off the wall was awesome.
And weird or not, we liked Karen and Cam a lot from day one. They found us through Rebecca Bollwitt (aka Miss 604 – a Vancouver blogger) and pictures of her dangling from a building (which is weird), and we’re glad they did.
