Wedding: Katie and Brian | Kellerman's Event Center | White Bear Lake | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

I don’t even know where to begin with this wedding. There are so many awesome things about it. So I guess I’ll begin at when we met Katie and Brian. We had brunch with them when we first met and they had been recommended to us through their venue. We were getting to know one another and they told us that they were cosplayers. Kyle and I are total nerds and love conventions of pretty much any type, so we love seeing people cosplay as well. It didn’t take long before we became their photographers. I’m just going to post a link to their engagement session HERE, as it is worth checking out. They had prop swords that they used at the engagement session and it was incredibly fun. We knew their wedding was going to be amazing.

The day of the wedding was HOT. We pulled into the venue parking lot and Brian actually pulled into the spot next to us. We saw he was wearing a black suit and I couldn’t be more grateful that I wasn’t wearing a suit. He was sweating by the time he got into the venue and it was mere feet away. Needless to say, the first look and a couple shots were outside, but we spent most of our time inside. That’s one of the things we love about Kellerman’s Event Center. It is ideal for the impossible to predict Minnesota weather. The interior is BEAUTIFUL.

Here’s a list of a few things on this day that we just LOVED:

  • Katie’s DRESS!

  • They had a sword prop they built that was used as the guest book

  • They had a commissioned painting of their dog on the desert table so he would be present

  • Katie’s brothers (the ushers) were dressed as the Blues Brothers

  • After the first dance and spotlight dances, they broke into “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love”

  • Katie and Brian actually took a class to perfect the Footloose dance, which they also performed (see the last three photos on this post
