5 Years

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on August 31, 2013



The moment I saw you,
the light in your eyes,
lit up the room like a bright, flaming sun.

Your glow radiates,
touches my heart, my soul.
I’m forever yours.

Our eyes meet,
I’m hooked forever.

Deeply passionate,
A true friend, a true love.
That and so much more.

Free at last,
to grow,
to love,
to live.

Together we shall.

[a poem I wrote for Eric on our wedding day, August 31, 2008]

Beautiful photographs. I love the picture that you took from overhead with the whole wedding party. And that poem that you wrote was amazing. I hope you had that framed! :)

By the way- I really like your new About page picture. Did you have that one and the last picture on here taken for your new cookbook?


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 31, 2013 at 12:18 pm

Happy 5th Anniversary Angela and Eric! I’ve always loved when you posted your wedding photos. We initially contacted Dave and Charlotte for our wedding, but they were unavailable and recommended someone whom we ended up booking on the spot (and couldn’t be happier with!).

Enjoy your Labour Day weekend, hopefully we’lll get some sun here! :)


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 31, 2013 at 12:22 pm

Congrats on your wedding! I just checked out your blog and saw your recent post. So beautiful. Hope you are able to get some r&r now!

Sydney Reichhardt October 9, 2013 at 11:42 pm

I’m getting married on August 31 next summer! Must be a good date!


Carli June 16, 2014 at 8:38 am


I didn’t know where to post this, but it is wedding related so here it is.

My wife and I recently got married in Saint John, NB, and catered the small wedding ourselves and it was completely vegetarian. I felt that I should tell you that most of the recipes we used was yours, from your website. You have a wonderful website, and natural talent to put things together. Your instructions are easy to understand, and you always give alternatives to things that are either expensive or hard to come by. It was so easy to get everything done for the wedding. Thank you for all the recipes, we are looking forward to buying your book soon (just have to swing by Indigo).

Also your recipes and photos are month watering. Once you start look at them you can’t stop.

Once again thank you!

(Oh I realize now that your wedding anniversary is on my birthday, haha)

Have a great day, and keep it up.


Angela (Oh She Glows) June 17, 2014 at 2:42 pm

Hi Carli,

Congrats on your wedding!! Always nice to hear from fellow maritimers :) (I was born in Moncton). I’m so honoured that you used many of my recipes for your wedding! Thanks for letting me know and all the best!


Matea March 2, 2015 at 6:47 pm

You guys had such a cute wedding! Loving your dress (and that long train!) :)


ReShonda Parker January 20, 2017 at 12:45 pm

I have followed your site for a while and bought your cookbooks, but i hate to admit i have never taken time out to look past the recipes…i did today. The love that you two have for each other is beautiful and is evident in the way you look at each other. I never had a wedding, but i pray someday i will. Things honestly have been rather up and down in my marriage to the point some days i don’t know how i do or will survive….then i hear “God”. Thank you for giving me something to hope for some day. You are beautiful and were such a beautiful bride! I am late, but Congratulations and i wish you both all the best and much much more!
