To most of us, Stella’s Fish Cafe in Uptown is our favorite place for sushi and seafood. For Kelly and Jim, this is where their incredible love began, when they met each other at the restaurant through a mutual friend. On the day of their proposal, Jim had a limo pick Kelly up from work and bring her to Stella’s, where he was waiting on the roof. Their love story began in the same place where their happy ending began; nothing could have been more special or thoughtful. Nice work, Jim!
When I asked Kelly and Jim what their favorite thing to do together was, they answered, “too many, but we like to take walks around local lakes with our dog, Rush.” So that’s exactly what we did for their engagement photos. I spent the day with them walking around beautiful Lake Calhoun and the surrounding area, with Rush, who is arguably the most photogenic dog I’ve ever met, as well as surprisingly well-behaved! Clearly Kelly and Jim are doing something right! In fact, Kelly and Jim are doing a lot of things right. First and foremost, they made the decision to marry each other, which is so clearly meant to be. Their chemistry was fun and simple and so strong; you could tell they just loved being around each other. It was a beautiful fall day, so naturally we ended up with beautiful photos, and I could tell that Kelly and Jim were going to have a beautiful life together. There seems to a theme within their relationship! It was so clear to me that their desire to be around one another would never fade. Congrats you two! I cannot wait for your wedding. Oh, and don’t forget to bring Rush along, too!
