Snow? In October?

Yes, it snowed. Sam and Spencer probably didn’t expect snow on their October 4th wedding, but they awoke on their wedding morning to a fresh dusting. Luckily for us, they braved the cold to play outside with us for a few photos. The ceremony was moved indoors, right near the fireplace at the country club, and they were surrounded by family and friends. Many happy tears were shed! Take a peek for yourself.

These two are huge Star Wars fans. Their pastor even said, “May God’s force be with you,” in the ceremony!

We had a wonderful time! Congratulations, Sam and Spencer!

In typical Heidi style, we celebrated shooting two weddings in two days by planning a full Sunday.
We slept in a little bit, then headed over to Nekoosa for their annual Pumpkin Festival. The highlight of this festival is when they hoist a giant pumpkin up on a crane, then drop it. This year’s pumpkin was 1400 pounds! We missed the pumpkin drop (it happened later in the day), so the highlight for us was the Nekoosa Ambulance Run The Pumpkin 5K. All the proceeds from the race support their ambulance and medical crews. It’s a cause I can get behind! šŸ™‚
Did you know that Nekoosa is the Giant Pumpkin Capital of Wisconsin?

This little race is awesome. With Chicago Marathon a week away, I was looking for a surefire confidence boost. I rarely run these small town races, but I had a a lot of fun! It was an out-and-back course, with Daisy Girl Scouts handing out water at the turnaround. It was almost too cute. I loved it! It was my fastest 5K yet, 26:55… And with such a small field, I earned third in my age group. My first age group award ever! Maybe I should run more small races… šŸ™‚

I was on cloud nine, and we hopped back in the car to go up to Wausau to celebrate our adorable friend, Halle, turning three!

I love this little peanut. Some of our college friends made the trip to celebrate, as well!

Halle loves minions, so she and Mom (Jenny!) made these cute cupcakes.

Happy birthday, cutie! We all love you.

When we headed out, I noticed I’d put my shoes next to Halle’s. It’s a good thing she’s three, otherwise I’d feel like a giant! šŸ™‚

Next up? A trip to Green Bay for some fly shop time, engagement portraits, and dinner. šŸ™‚ Thanks for reading, friends!
