FC: To Melanie, With Love...
1: Melanie is the best daughter a mother could ever have. She is smart and beautiful and has a great personality and we have a lot of laughs when we visit her and Shaun. She has a good job and is self-sufficient which is something I always wanted for Melanie. Even better that she has met Shaun and has him to look out for her. Doug and I hope they will have a wonderful life together and live happily ever after.
3: Some words to describe my buddy Mel, Happy, energetic & full of life Funny - no sorry - hilarious Generous Gracious Beautiful Spirit Thoughtful Quick with a joke or to light up your smoke Dependable Fun Witty Gorgeous Intelligent Hard-Working Always up for anything Best shopper I know Stylish Best beer drinker I know Lori said it best. You really are a Tiny Wonder......... Most of all you are the best friend a girl could ask for. I love you more than you know and I wish you and Shaun all the happiness life has to offer. Love, Kelly
5: Mel and I met about 5 years ago. I remember being at a house party and the girls were talking about going out dancing. I knew Mel had to drive to Cape Breton in the morning, so I didn't think she'd be up for it. Well, no sir!! She put on her dancing shoes and we've been good friends ever since. I call her my "little sis" because she feels like that to me. I am so blessed she asked me to stand in her wedding. I really means everything to me. :) I am so happy Mel ended up in Halifax and I ended up being her friend. My life is better for it. Congrats on your big day, Melly! Wishing you all the happiness in the world. My fave Mel quote: "..mouse, house, blouse..." Love you! xoxo Krilly
6: Melanie.....what can I say in a few words that could possible sum up the way I feel about you? Meeting you and becoming a friend of yours has been an experience like no other. Your positive and beautiful personality is only matched by your outer appearance. I am so happy for both you and Shaun as you begin your new adventures together as husband and wife. All the best to you both. BAMBI ROCKS!!! XOXOXOXOX Love Leslie
7: May you have as many years of happiness, as we have cat hairs in the house! Congrats Mel! Hope you and Shaun have a beautiful wedding day and a very happy long life together! xoxoxox Heidi
9: Mel, Soon you'll be walking down the aisle and looking at your husband-to-be, and everything else in the world will seem to disappear, if only for those few moments. I never really understood why people get married until that particular moment that nothing else mattered, except the sparkle in Billy's eyes as he looked at me in a way that I'd never seen before. There's something about that particular moment that all made it seem so real, and so right. It really was the beginning of the rest of our lives. Ever since then, the days, weeks, and months have passed that may seem the same from the outside looking in, but from where I sit, I see life in a whole new perspective, and a whole new purpose and happiness that grows each day. You and Shaun have something so special that no one knows but the two of you. You make a great couple and I know you''ll still be laughing together when you are old and grey.... Wishing you all the best on your new adventure together. Love and Hugs, Naomi
10: Melanie is a sweet, sensitive soul and I am happy to call her my friend. She is a great listener and has an awesome sense of humor - it's hard not to smile when you are around Mel. She is a beautiful person: smart, pretty and full of sparkle and delight.. Plus she's got moves on the dance floor! I wish her all the best on this new adventure with Shaun. Love you Melly! Love
11: Mel, I couldn't be happier or more excited to share your special day with you. It will be the happiest day of your life (to date)!! You radiate happiness and vigor for life and it is contagious. I LOVE being around you for that reason (and you are a lot of fun). I cannot wait to see how stunning you will be on your wedding day. Yay to you and your wedding! xoxoxxo Love Katrina
13: This photo was taken at the Bauer Street Block Party on 24 July, 2010. The day started with a boozy brunch to celebrate Melanie and Kelly's engagements, and ended, we;ll, quite messily. In between, we had a LOT of fun Here, Mel and I are pointing at lori's chalk-drawn storyboard for the Leblancadonc video, which was pretty impressive (and hilarious). It might be blurry but the photo actually says a lot about Mel: that she is a charming party host, a beautiful and kind woman (perhaps the nicest I know), and an endlessly supportive and generous friend. I'm so lucky to know her.. Cheers to Melanie: wishing you lots of love and a lifetime of happiness.
15: I adore Melanie. She has one of the kindest hearts you would ever be lucky enough to come across. She is sensitive and supportive, generous and caring, and best of all, she is accepting and trustworthy. I feel lucky to have Melanie in my life because she accepts people for who they are and loves them beyond all their faults. Melanie always surprises me with her quick sense of humor and her easy laugh - like the photo says - she's always good for a hoot. She has an uncanny ability to always remain uninjured after epic tumbles downstairs and on dance floors and is always humble (and awesome) enough to laugh at herself. I am blessed to have the Tiny Wonder as my friend, and I want her in my life forever. I'm jealous that Shaun put the ring on it first. Love you, Melly! Lori
21: Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born
23: Melanie is a true friend. Someone who brings joy to the people she meets. We are all blessed to have her in our lives, through the ups and downs, the silly nights and the serious times. We love you Melly!!!
