We fell in love with Kenni + Keith the very first time we met them. I remember walking away from our consultation and telling Greg, I hope they pick us, they are OUR couple! And when I say our couple, I totally mean it. For a branding exercise Greg and I created a sample couple. Kenni + Keith are literally reincarnations of that fictional couple.
After meeting for their engagement session at Irvine Regional Park (yes, we do basically live there) we began counting down the days until their wedding. We just couldn’t wait to hang out with these two again! They are two of the sweetest, most thoughtful people, and they are so much fun to be around. He is a quite guy with a huge heart and she is a sweetheart with an infectious smile, so basically together they are the perfect match.
I absolutely love their love story, it is so genuine–definitely one that will make you go ‘aww’. These two met when Kenni joined the crossfit gym Keith trained at. Keith always said he would never date anyone from the gym, in his mind gym life and love life did not mix. Kenni was drawn to Keith, but nothing actually came out of it until one night their group went out for drinks. One shot of fireball turned into two and the next thing Keith knew, was that he definitely did want to date someone from the crossfit world ;). From that moment their worlds intertwined and the rest led to this magical day we are about to share photos from.
Their ceremony had Greg and I tearing up, cracking up, and just all around happy for them! At one point, their officiant mentioned how Kenni lays in bed at night asking Keith random questions, at which point Greg immediately darted his eyes to mine and chuckled. Greg chuckled because he also is kept up by random questions. Questions like: “of my freckles, which is your favorite” and ” what is your weapon of choice for the zombie apocalypse”. These two are such a refreshing and raw couple and we just loved getting to know them better.
Another one of my favorite moments from their wedding day was a quite moment during the ceremony. I paused to take in the moment and looked out into the crowd. Looking around I saw Kenni’s grandparents, hand in hand watching their granddaughter marry her happily ever after. That moment filled me with such happiness. In that moment, seeing hands that have endured over 60 years of marriage gave me such encouragement and inspiration. Their hands symbolize everything anyone wishes for on wedding day, a partner to persevere with and a hand to hold throughout life. It made me so happy seeing that Kenni and Keith have an amazing example of marriage in front of them. I know that, that example will really server them well.
Kenni + Keith, thank you for trusting us to capture your special day. Love like yours truly inspires Greg and I, and reinforces why we do what we do. Your love is raw, honest, and genuine. It is the kind of love that others aspire to have, the kind that inspires Greg and I. It is the kind of love that this world needs. We are excited for you both to start the most amazing journey yet.
