It’s a SNELLebration!

Sarah & Wade were married at Sarah’s family home on July 20th, 2019 in Eagle River, Alaska. It was an absolutely breath taking day.

Sarah’s parent’s, Michelle and Steve Haynes,  have worked countless hours in and on their yard/property. It was only natural that Sarah and Wayde get married there. snell-1st-half-blogs-53.jpg

As many hours as Michelle has spent beautifying her property and home, THIS moment showed just how much the hours we spend with our children in the daily routines, and in the highlighted moments are what truly matter.
