PHOTOS: Wedding bells from 1919 chime at Kilby Historic Site

Wedding reenactments took place all B.C. Day long weekend

An intimate farm setting, a sunny day and geese on the guest list.

Kilby Historic Site’s 1919 wedding reenactment had a little bit of everything.

Museum programmer Chris Linton and a handful of historic actors performed a period-accurate wedding ceremony for a group of guests and a pair of boistrous resident geese (who are always invited and promptly left after the ceremony concluded).
