A small and intimate Food Building wedding in Northeast Minneapolis was a great way to end this years wedding season.
I know that every couple has a love story and that they are all adorable; however, Katy and Bonnie’s story has stuck with me since we met them and had the chance to hear it.
“During the midst of Covid, Columbia Heights Pride moved to online only. Even though Katy knew she probably wouldn’t wear it, she bought a t-shirt online to support her local community. At the same time, Bonnie was volunteering for Columbia Heights Pride to celebrate and support her community. Bonnie was managing online merchandise sales and contacted Katy a couple days later to coordinate a pick up or drop off. It was decided. Bonnie was leaving the t-shirt on the front steps & extended an invite for Katy to walk around to the backyard to say hi, but wasn’t sure if she’d still be home. Katy had searched for Bonnie online and after seeing who she was, decided to hurry and catch her before she left. Katy nervously tripped up the top sidewalk step, grabbed the bag and walked around back. They met. They chatted. Then Bonnie said BYE! Tuesday night they had cocktails at Bonnies. The proceeding Saturday they spent 13 hours together talking, going to Dusty’s happy hour, enjoying their time, and realizing this was a unique awesome experience.” -Bonnie and Katy
The best part of this, Bonnie shared, was the fact that Bonnie had set forth a rule for herself after the trials and tribulations of dating which was, “I’m not going to date anyone again unless a lesbian comes knocking at the door”
Since it’s hard to argue with the universe and fate such as this, these two started their adventure and got to tie the knot in front of their family and friends on the coldest day of the year.
Since the weather was a tad chilly at “feels like -33,” we stayed indoors at the lovely dog friendly Hewing hotel. The adorable and dapper couple’s dog Greg got to join in the fun as well as everyone prepared for the nuptials.
Up and down the isle these two went, with sweet vows and supportive guests all around at the Food Building.
And after their vows about being able to dance silly with each other in life, we got to see their moves in action as the reception kicked off.
We are so glad we had the chance to meet these adorable women who found love and showcase it so adorably. Cheers to them (and Greg) and their family!
Thanks to the vendors!
