snow + cocoa

The girls hate being cooped up in the house just as much as I do. Sometimes I think winter will never end. Ever. I’m almost ready to throw in the towel and move someplace warm. Almost, but then we would be so far from our families. At least when the weather isn’t below freezing we can get outside, throw some snow in the air and then head inside to warm up with cocoa and marshmallows. And who doesn’t love the tiny marshmallows that come in hot cocoa?

Marissa + James, St. Joe’s + Glacier Canyon Lodge

You know that feeling you get when you meet two people in love? Imagine that, because it is exactly the feeling I get when I think of Marissa and James. Just the thought, gives me this huge smile, not that you can see it, but I hope that our story of their wedding day can relate how much love they have for one another. I know that looking back, I remember how amazing the day was.

We started out at St. Joe’s in Baraboo, and I think by now you all know how much I love this church, the light inside is gorgeous, every single time, not to mention it’s a beautiful building. I also may have told my girls it’s a castle, but that’s beside the point. After the ceremony, we headed out to Devil’s Lake for a few formals, we took a little detour by this amazing Oak for some quiet shots of just Marissa and James, and then we finished the day at the Glacier Canyon Lodge reception hall. I don’t think my words can do the story justice, so let me show you with our photos. Enjoy!
