our wedding

       nick and i said ‘i do’ on december 13, 2014. it was a 50 degree slightly foggy day. in my mind i pictured a light dusting of snow, perfect for pictures. those of you who know iowa winter weather know that 50 degrees is a super nice day! we couldn’t have asked for better traveling conditions for our guests.
