I love you SNOW much

Ringing in the New Year is all about fresh starts, new beginnings and positive vibes. It’s such an electric time! The thought of the future and what could be lets your mind wander toward the possibilities. I truly can’t think of a better way to start the New Year than by getting married! Or for me, photographing a wedding–2016 you’re off to an incredible start! Rebecca and Andrew were married at Trinity Chapel  on the first day of the New Year on the most magical of winter days in Minnesota. The snow sparkled and the tree branches were covered. It was the kind of day where you think to yourself that winter isn’t so bad after all (until it’s -20 the next week). The white snow was the perfect symbol of their Christian marriage; I can’t help but think of how Christ by His grace, makes us white and pure as snow in His sight. When two are joined under that grace, it’s as beautiful as freshly fallen snow.

Their winter wedding was classic and elegant; black and white with accents of pine cones, cool colors and of course, a hot cocoa bar. I’m incredibly honored to know this couple! They are AWESOME and so kind. Lucky for me, they now both live in LA (cue a song about California) and I know I’ll get to see them again soon! Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Maas!!
