Kathleen and Jacob’s Hanover Inn at Darthmouth College Wedding on New Year’s Eve!

Two days before Kathleen and Jacob‘s wedding, it snowed over 6 inches. We were elated since we had been talking about how perfect that would be since the day we signed on for the wedding. The whole drive up, we marveled at the softbox sky, and the manageable temperatures. It was as perfect a winter day as you could order up. When we arrived it was game on until we left that evening. The girls were so excited they were bubbling over the entire pre-ceremony time. When I walked in the room they were laughing and all talking at the same time, and that never stopped. Not only was standing in the window for photos their crazy idea, but they didn’t even flinch when I asked them to stand in the snow BAREFOOT for a few photos. That is dedication… the kind of bridesmaids that every bride wants. Right before the ceremony, I asked Jacob what kind of kiss he was planning on giving Kathleen for their first kiss as a married couple. He smiled and told me he hadn’t even thought about that yet! Well he delivered when he planted a huge on one on her after he was blessed to do so. At the reception, the entire bridal party surprised them with a song and the father daughter dance was adorable, set to Bobby Darin’s “You must have been a beautiful baby.” Unforgettable. The dance party was epic, the DJ confiding in me that these people didn’t know what was about to hit them once he got into it. He planned all super fast songs for the end and everyone was sweating from the amazingness of the reception dance party. What a GREAT way to spend New Years eve don’t you think?

Hey there!

This is a photo of me in a burger bar in Stockholm Sweden. I am about to drink the best beer I have ever had. It's a pretty important photo of me. I just remember feeling filled with joy and so so glad to be alive. That's a good place to start on getting to know me.


I like to travel.

I like beer.

I like the person who was across the table from me. Any guesses who?

where we hang
