    Writing Wedding Thank You Cards

    Ok if you are anything like me most likely your thank you cards would end up looking a little something like this…  

    "Thank you grandma for the lovely doilies.  They will look great in the back of my closet for the rest of eternity."

    — Loving Grandson
      or maybe something like this…

    "Thank you Aunt Ruth for the gray blender I really look forward to making fruit smoothies."

    — Smoothie Lover
      Eek.  Well worry no more.  I came across this great little guide to writing meaningful and thoughtful thank you cards.  This addition is especially geared towards weddings too.  Best part this Author is a local Rochester Minnesota author and even better the book is only 99 cents!  Heck you paid more for the last app on your phone than this book.  So if your thank you writing skills are anything like mine, I highly recommend picking up a copy today.  Thanks to this guide writing thank you cards doesn’t have to be painful.

    After several tries to get snow we finally ended up with a fantastic day to walk around in a wintery wonderland.  Katelyn and Alex were such a blast to spend the afternoon with and I don’t think we had a single serious moment… well except the point in which I thought we were going to be staring in our very own episode of I Shouldn’t Be Alive.  I might also add that Alex disapproved of stealing Katelyn’s Mother’s vintage teal chair.  I look forward to seeing you guys at your much warmer May wedding.  Congratulations to both of you.

    Sparks fly at this wedding

    New Berlin Hills Golf Course was the perfect setting for this beautiful late fall wedding.  Not only was it an unseasonably warm and beautiful November day in Wisconsin, but it was also just down the road from Charlottes  family home.  Later in the night we let the sparks fly for some fun long exposure sparkler shots.  Note to future bride who want to use sparklers… bring lots of them and a good lighter or maybe even a blow torch.  I had such a great time meeting both of your families as well as seeing  Katie and Jason who’s wedding I photographed 5 years ago.  congratulations guys!
