My heart was full as I took in the scene - the room filled with friends and family. Some who had known each other for years, others who were meeting their new cousins for the first time. All eager to make this day the most special day possible for the young couple in love. The sweeping white cloth covered the ceiling in elegance. Hot Cocoa steamed from mugs. The band was calling directions to the music (Swing your partner ♫ Now, Dosey Doe ♪), as young and old threw themselves into the fun of the line dance. And Teddy and AnnaJoy's eyes met across the line, now husband and wife. All the pressures of wedding planning behind them, and a future full of promises ahead. It's these days filled with love and joy that I love to capture. Not even negative Wisconsin winter temps could put a damper on the day. (Although, it did make taking photos more challenging - thank you Thirsty Cactus for saving the day and letting us use your space for a few portraits!) Teddy and AnnaJoy - I am so excited to watch your life together, thank you for choosing me to capture your beginning!
