Brandyn & Mario

April 9, 2010 at the Guthrie Theater and Bar Lurcat in Minneapolis

Brandyn Herbold and Mario Negri’s simply elegant wedding spoke for itself, with a beautiful gown, pristine calla lilies and tastefully presented fare in contemporary settings. Though their photos tell a beautiful love story, they can’t quite convey the depths of the couple’s tale. With a common vision and a passion for service (the entrepreneurial couple co-owns Sigh Yoga + Boutique), they also share a bond that few can imagine. During their first year of dating, Mario donated a kidney to Brandyn, who was suffering from a genetic kidney disease. With their flourishing love and commitment to good health, the rest is sweet icing.
