I can't say enough about this next couple. Our first inquiry with Kaden & Kenzie felt like the stars had aligned and brought us this amazing couple we knew we'd click with instantly. Not only were they living IN Scotland when we were on our way out there for our first vacation, but we were able to shoot their engagement photos while there (link to that magical day right here), tour around Glen Coe with them, and come to know them as friends before their wedding even took place! To say we think these guys are incredibly inspiring people-would be an understatement.
They're kind-hearted, hilarious, and inclusive to everyone around them. Proof of that would be their massive wedding party, and all the friends that travelled from SCOTLAND to celebrate with them. Sometimes with large wedding parties I'm like "HOW?! I don't even have 9 friends!", but with Kaden & Kenz it would be odd not to see this much love surrounding them. You can't be this fun-and not have this many friends.
(By the way-props to Jen from Blue Stone Weddings & Events for keeping this many people organized all day!)
They got married in Central Park on Canada Day (for these world travellers it made perfect sense), they've travelled the globe, but still so much love for their own country (and yes, we all sang O'Canada at the reception-Thanks Mark!). Each table at the reception was a country they'd visited with a portrait of them together in that country. It was amazing to walk around and get a tiny glimpse of just how much of the world these two had conquered together.
The ceremony was beautiful and the dancing recession was hilarious (Thanks Kaden, and also Gerry for following up Kaden's jig with a father-of-the-bride aisle dance as well!). This led us into one of the most entertaining receptions I've ever been to. Kaden & Kenzie had me stay an extra hour to catch all the dance floor shenanigans. I'm so glad they did. I laughed so hard that night I got a stomach ache! Everywhere I turned, people were just letting loose and having a blast.
Kaden & Kenzie, we love you guys. We know your marriage is going to be filled with laughter and adventure for years to come. We are so glad we get to call you our friends! Thanks for trusting us with your day, and for just being so dang fun. ;)
Amanda & Matt
