Natalie & Bryan’s July wedding at Kellerman’s Event Center in White Bear Lake, MN was just perfect! They included all the people (and animals) that are important to them, and picked an excellent vendor team to pull off their dream! 

Natalie and Bryan met at work, and at the time, Natalie had Queenie, her rescue pup! Since they started dating, they adopted two more pups, bought a house, survived COVID times, and are now married! Bonus: All three pups got to be a part of their celebration, thanks to Doggy Social!

Kellerman’s was the perfect place for these two to get married! 

With their rainbow-themed colors, the courtyard outside Kellerman’s really complimented their vibe. Guided by their on-site coordinator, guests could easily flow from the ceremony to the receiving line to cocktail hour, and then back to the main room for dinner.

In a time when couples are gravitating toward entertaining all of their guests with games, photobooths, and outdoor seating, all Natalie and Bryan wanted to do with their guests was dance the night away. Kellerman’s was the perfect place to do this! While their courtyard is very cute, it doesn’t allow for too much outdoor mingling, so if dancing is what you want, dancing is what you’ll get here! I highly recommend Gary’s Rat Pack if you’re looking for a unique Emcee and DJ option! 

Kellerman’s is also close to White Bear Lake (the actual lake) where we headed out for sunset photos! It was absolutely gorgeous, and a way for the two of them to unwind and spend a little alone time together during their day. Thanks to their Wedding Day Manager, Katie, for the ride!

With dinner cleared and sunset photos finished, we headed back for their first dances. I could tell that Natalie and her family were close, but I had no idea just how close until they all joined her and her dad during the father-daughter dance! Welcome to the family, Bryan!

Not to be outdone, Bryan gave his mom a big hug and a lift at the end of their dance together — how sweet! 

Now happily married, Natalie and Bryan danced the night away with their closest loved ones!

If you’re considering having your wedding at Kellerman’s Event Center, I’d highly recommend it! It’s a well-run establishment with everything you need, and will allow you to celebrate with your guests. I love that Kellerman’s is spacious enough to sit and chat at your table, or pop outside for a cool-down. But the real gem is that it keeps your guests close to you so you can celebrate with them!
