It was incredibly difficult to narrow down the photos for this post. I usually try to restrict myself to just ten photos per blog post, but these two people, along with all the folks around them in their wedding images, hold such a special place in my heart that I simply couldn’t pick only ten.
Joe is overwhelming responsible for teaching me to love Kirkwood and snowsports and powder days. I often wonder if he knows how empowering he is for the people around him – and girls in particular. He has an incredibly supportive, kind and bolstering nature when he skies with you that allows you to gain skills, the confidence necessary to pull them off, and have an unbelievably awesome time while doing it. There have been so many days in my winter life where Joe has possied up with a group of girls and taken us around the mountain, telling us where to jump and where to straight line and where to go fast, with patience, enthusiasm and encouragement. Not only did he help me fall in love with winter, but he is one of the major reasons I finally fell in love with Tahoe.
Maggie is an effervescent basket of laughter. She is all smiles and wide eyes and beauty. She is fun, smart, incredibly beautiful, and has this way of responding in conversations with this perfectly deadpan voice that cracks me up. It’s so obvious how much she and Joe care for each other – it carries over in their laughter and smiles and the twinkles in their eyes. And oh, do their eyes twinkle. Just look at these photos.
My friends are rambunctious, adventurous, obstreperous people with a thirst for life that inspires me on a daily basis. I love Maggie and Joe and all of them so much – I just want the whole world for all of them. I want them to be happy, healthy, successful, and to live a life of no regrets because that’s what they inspire me to do.
Mags and Ruckus: send it huge, stay safe and have fun. Congratulations to you both.
