A wedding at an aquarium. Vows referencing Mario Kart and Harry Potter. A home full of souvenirs from adventures around the world. Kellen and Val are geeks after our own hearts!
I loved starting the day with Val at their apartment, seeing all the personal touches - photos and postcards from travels - that form a sort of portrait of these adventurous souls. Between that and the guys playing Super Smash Bros., you get a good sense of how fun these two are, and the experiences and people that are important to them. This day was all about sharing the fun and the love that defines Kellen and Val!
Birch Aquarium provided a unique backdrop - and a beautiful view! - for this celebration. We also had a great time partying with all of the guests (plus an orange octopus and a few inflatable fish) in the SlowMo Booth!
Kellen and Val, you have many battles, many races, many adventures ahead of you, but you are an unstoppable team and together I know that it will be smooth cruising, and always a great story!
