kelley and shane’s wedding at the victorian in venice

as prophecized in a previous blog post, kelley and shane got married! ok, so i’m not really a fortune teller, but they did tie the knot and we were there to join in on the fun. we were stoked to be back in venice with kelley and shane. they are one of the coolest couples we know. for instance, kelley sells california air and shane is the bada$$ drummer for the hanks. the fact that shane likes the chargers is a double bonus. they are also one of the sweetest couples we know. during the reception shane gave us a shout out over the mic and thanked us in front of everyone.
he is cool times infinity, triple stamped, no erasies. we love kelley and shane!
we hope you enjoy their wedding day as we saw it.

the location kelley and shane chose for their wedding was simply beautiful. in addition to it’s old-timey charm, THE VICTORIAN has an amazing staff. Janell kept everything running smoothly and made us all feel like stars. and a big thanks to our very good friend masen who came out and rocked with all of us!

business in the front…

party in the back. the girls all traded their heels for brown chucks for the reception. we love chucks at weddings!

i love this quiet moment between roxy and her son.

kelley’s daughter courtney was a beautiful bridesmaid.

joining courtney in the beautiful bridesmaid club was karen, xochitl, katy, & marcee.

during the reception, kelley’s moh (maid of honor), karen, told the awesome tale of the day kelley met shane. this is my abridged version.
one by one they flowed in until the puddle became an ocean of people. friends. strangers. fans. pooled together to see DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE. all but two were not factors in the human equation about to take place. through the murky sea of faces something caught kelley’s eye. an irresistable lure that sat atop shane’s head. it was an airbrushed trucker hat that read, in bright bold letters, SHANE (as seen in the hanks video below). she was helpless to it’s power. effortlessly, it reeled her in. before she knew what happened kelley had given shane her spare ticket to the concert and had taken a seat next to what would be her future husband. by the end of THIS SONG their hands were clasped tight. their hearts, entwined.

here’s kelley’s reaction when she saw her man shane (without the hat this time) waiting for her at the end of the aisle. i think she likes him for more than his hat :)

one of the things i loved most about kelley and shane’s wedding were the vows they both wrote.
kelley wrote her vows on paper.

shane wrote his vows on…
his blackberry.

hey you two. pssst. hellooooo. the reception is starting. seriously.
ok, we’ll see you inside.

the victorian is an amazing venue to start. all the hard work that was put into the details put it over the top. the reception was exquisite.

kelley and shane were surrounded by family and friends. even kelley’s ex-landlord was there. he had everybody rolling.

the absolute coolest part of the reception was when shane, josh, bryan, and phil, a.k.a. THE HANKS, took center stage and played a rad acoustic set for everyone. if you haven’t heard these guys you should stop what you’re doing and go check em out right now. as soon as we heard them the first time we were hooked. we jumped over to iTunes and bought their first album (your new attraction) and their latest release (distance). the first day we owned them we literally listened to them all the way through 5 times in a row while editing. both albums are awesome!

fact – josh plays a wicked cool air guitar.

drumroll please.

we can’t thank you enough kelley and shane. you are so fun to be around. we truly do appreciate your genuine kindness and warmth. we wish you a lifetime of success and happiness together.

now presenting our first ohana booth, starring kelley, shane, and a lot of their awesome friends and family members. thank you all for making this so fun.
btw, the song is our favorite from THE HANKS. it’s called believe. thanks guys for making such rad music. we wish you guys crazy huge success in your journey to rock the world!! enjoy the shots everyone.
