Jacob and Rachael’s Snowy Wedding Day!

rj_markhawkinsphoto_ 1Just a few days before Christmas, Jacob and Rachael said their vows in front of their family and friends on the most perfect snowy day!   I was a little concerned about the snowy forecast since Rachael’s family was coming to Green Bay from down south, but you couldn’t have asked for more perfect taste of Wisconsin winter beauty.  There is nothing like the magic of twinkling Christmas lights and pretty snowflakes to create the perfect wedding backdrop.  We have known Jacob’s family for many years, and we think the world of them, and we have loved getting to know Rachael and meeting her family.  These two are an awesome couple.  They will be heading back to Norfolk where Jacob is stationed.  We wish you both the absolute best as you enjoy living life together.

Here is a little glimpse at the day…

Barkhausen was a winter wonderland!  rj_markhawkinsphoto_ 11rj_markhawkinsphoto_ 12rj_markhawkinsphoto_ 13rj_markhawkinsphoto_ 14
