JESSICA & BRYAN | GLAM GRAVES 601 MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING / by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

Jessica & Bryan's love story goes all the way back to High School, where they met through classes and connected as friends based on their love for snowboarding. Fast forward to post-college when, after not speaking for 9 years, they got dinner together as friends to catch up. Instead of recapping where they spent the last near decade, they picked up in the present and chatted as if they had been friends since high school! After a lengthy dinner date, they both had that feeling. With absolute certainty, Jessica knew that she couldn't let this one get away. She was working at her Mom's flower shop at the time so, naturally, the best idea was to send him flowers at work! Except there wasn't anyone available to make the delivery, so she brought them over herself. From that delivery on, they each knew they had found the one! Jessie & Bryan's wedding day was filled with more passion and energy than words can possibly begin to describe. Their personalities are magnetic and the way they love each other so comfortably, so effortlessly, speaks volumes. They dreamed up a glamorous wedding day that fit them perfectly! With striking lighting, abundant flowers by Jessie's Mom (owner of Lexington Floral), and just the right amount of flashy sparkle, they transformed Graves 601 in downtown Minneapolis into a magical lounge experience for all of their guests!

Jessica & Bryan's first look before their Friday evening ceremony was very emotional! Their nervous anticipation of the day seemed to be much more at ease once they were in each other's arms :)

Are Jessie's flowers not the most gorgeous thing you have ever seen!! Oh my goodness, we were completely blown away! And how beautiful are these two together!

Their ceremony, officiated by Jessica's step-Mom, was filled with smiles and laughter as Jodi recalled the story of their relationship perfectly!

J&B surrounded themselves with an awesome bridal party - we had SO much fun with all of them!

Jessica, you radiate beauty! And Bryan, you look quite dapper yourself ;)

Everyone loved J&B's sweets bar & appetizer style cocktail reception! So many options!

Thank you so much for the distinct honor of being part of your wedding day, Jessica & Bryan!! We really felt like we were part of your celebration and are so grateful for the way that the two of you and your awesome families/friends welcomed us with open arms. We are so happy for the two of you and know that you have a lifetime of fun, laughter, and adventure ahead of you!!
