Brett and Kai were married yesterday!
These two found the soulmate in each other almost instantly. Their love was immediate and intense. They are one of those couples that just knew they were meant to be together, and yesterday their friends and family watched them commit in their vows as “husbands for life”. Kai and Brett are absolutely full of life and surround themselves with people who are kind, generous and down right hilarious. We had an amazing time photographing their day at the Minnesota Zoo.
All the love and support really got to the giraffe, he needed a moment to process…
As fun as the zoo is, I don’t know if it was prepared for all this energy!
Kai and Brett have an amazing connection, and are so giving to each other. Documenting their relationship was such an honor.
The grooms had Wisteria Design create all the gorgeous floral pieces for the day.
Man, this group knew how to bring it when we asked for a dramatic portrait. Yowza!
As rain gently fell outside, the grooms prepped for their big moment. The ceremony was full of happy tears, beautiful vows, and testament to the positive effect these men have had on their community of friends and family.
In the reception space, the couple showed their penchant for entertaining with delicious food stations, colorful decor and music full of energy. Their recessional music was “Lets have a Kiki” by the Scissor Sisters if that gives any indication 😉
At Nick and Maren’s wedding, Maren’s dad had me in messy tears as I was photographing his speech. And the same happened last night as Jim serenaded his son and son-in-law, encouraging the entire room to sing along to “Stand By Me”.
After heartfelt speeches and retelling about how the couple first met, it was time to PARTY! Music Mix Entertainment kept a great mix of songs playing, guests mingled, wandered the aquarium, got crazy in the photobooth and enjoyed their friends.
These two almost made it to midnight.
The dance ended with Beyonce and a very happy couple!
Brett and Kai, it was an HONOR to be a part of your day. We adore you both and hope you enjoy your sneak peek!!!
