From going to the same college to finally meeting each other through a mutual friend, Brittney & Jarod are nothing less than being absolutely adorable. Their love can be seen through every part of their wedding as these two said their “I Dos” on June 27 of 2014. Brittney & Jarod met while they were both attending Minnesota State, Mankato. Once Brittney saw Jarod for the first time during a night on the town, she walked right up to him to let him know that she thought he was cute. The next day, Jarod reached out to Brittney and their love story began to unfold right in front of them as they enjoyed a casual walk around Mankato. Before Brittney knew it, Jarod was asking for her hand in marriage and slipping a ring on her hand in Waikiki with their loved ones watching online from a 24/7 live cam that was streaming the whole thing. She was completely caught off guard!
For their special day they chose A’BULAE—a venue that overlooks downtown St. Paul, Minnesota with a modern architecture feel and a rooftop that will make every guest go “wow” as they take in the scenery. With the help of A’BULAE’s wedding planner Nancy, the vision for their wedding was made into a reality and just could not get the place out of their minds. After visiting only one other place after A’BULAE, they knew they had to stop looking for they had found their dream venue. To help finish out the rest of their wedding plans, the couple reached out to Bellagala for every service they could offer them in order to make their dream wedding more of a reality. With their help, Brittney & Jarod were able to secure their florist, photographer, DJ, hair & makeup team, event planner, and live music! Talk about getting everything you need at once place! To round out the wedding planning process, the couple was able to book their cake & cupcakes from Buttercream, videographer Bryan Bratt, and officiate Dr. Reverend Frank Nelson. All that was left was to wait for their magical day to arrive.
When the day had finally come, everything started to go as smooth as it could go. However, the weather that day had decided to bring in a little rain. Before the rain could completely start the couple and wedding party were able to snap a few pictures on the rooftop. Then, in the middle of the photo shoot, the clouds opened with rain and everyone was all ready in their tuxes and dresses! Luckily for them, beautiful and fun pictures were captured and it did not put a damper on Brittney & Jarod’s special day. Before they knew it, the rain had diminished and the soon-to-be husband & wife were able to have the rooftop ceremony they had been planning. Every detail of this wedding was thought out with precise execution. From having their grandmothers being their “flower girls,” Brittney’s grandfather’s blue shirt sewn into her dress to have a little piece of him with her on that day, to even Jarod saying “…as MY husband” instead of “…as YOUR husband,” this modern wedding is one that will be remembered forever not only in their hearts, but ours as well. This wedding was truly nothing short of perfection.
