when you get to spend the day with just six special people as two families are joined together, you have the privilege of truly feeling like family as well.  

this past friday anne and mike were married in an intimate ceremony of just their parents and sisters, amid a lot of joyful tears i might add! mike and anne met on the slopes of caberfae as members of the ski patrol, and a mutual love for the slopes is certainly something we shared right away! the ceremony took place in a charming little chapel in grand rapids with a private reception at the 19th century mansion turned restaurant of mangiamo* talk about incredible food!

m&k, thank you for such a wonderful day.  you braved cold weather and shared such a special and intimate day with me, and i recognize the privilege it was.  blessings to you two in your lives together.  and yes, we still need to hit the slopes together someday!!!
