David Ing, at large … Sometimes, my mind wanders

2007/06/16 Wedding: Selene and Dennis

Posted on June 16, 2007 by daviding

I remember Uncle Harry’s wedding — I must have been under 10 years of age — so it was an occasion when his youngest, Selene, was married to Dennis. Their ceremony at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament was well attended by friends and family of both the bride and groom.

Weddings are rare occasions to get the extended family together. After the crowd had cleared a bit, we got a chance to speak with the bride and groom.

While each of the Ings have not had huge families, we do seem to have a pattern of families with more than the average 1.52 children per woman for Canada. We reminded Eric that in a childhood visit to Palo Alto, we had met with Selene’s older brother Doug, with his newlywed wife Winnie. Winnie’s father must be happy to see his grandkids growing up.

The last to marry in my generation are Pearl’s daughters. They’re all still eligible … so we’re wondering who will be next in line for a wedding.


Some of our sons are technically at marrying age — Adam was still in China at the date of this wedding — but we’re not expecting betrothals in the immediate future.

The reception was held at the Pearl Harbourfront Chinese Restaurant, a more upscale venue than the traditional Chinese restaurant.

It seems that Dennis’ family is big into sweets, so there was a wide selection of desserts after dancing.

    Interesting to see an extended family! I have no Uncles and therefore no cousins. One aunty is a Nun, the other never married, so no family events like this!

    Thanks for posting the pics David! I’m glad it was a big enough event to make it to the blog! It was great to see everyone again — let’s hope we don’t have to wait for another wedding to get together!

    It’s been a long time since I have seen all of you – even if this is only a picture.
    Everyone looks good.
    Maybe soon, we can find an opportunity when we are not a world apart and can actually meet in person – would that not be a hoot!
