You walk into calculus class and you know what to expect. Right? You typically don’t get excited about it and definitely don’t think that is where you will find the love of your life – but that is what happened to Kevin and Shannon. From what I know,  things do just tend to fall into place for these two.

I received a call near the end of July from Shannon, asking skeptically if I just might be available for her September 2 wedding. She didn’t expect it. As it happened, I was booked to be away, but had changed my plans, so it was an easy yes, (especially as she is the sister of one of my fave clients and people.) The same happened with her make-up, florist, location and her custom made dress. The whole wedding came together, as it was meant to, just like Kevin and Shannon.

Being around Shannon and Kevin is quite simply joyful. They are just the type that make you happy. They smile easily and are one of the most relaxed couples I have ever worked with. They laugh often  and easily – with their quick wit banter, and playful manner , engaging each other and those around them, they have an air of lightness.

The ceremony at Filberg Park was beautifully decorated by Shannon’s sister, and the ceremony was performed by Kevin’s dad. Afterwards the guests played games and ate delicious snacks on Crown Isle’s Bocci Ball field and then headed to a reception filled with sentiment and tons of laughter.

Shannon and Kevin, thank you for having the wedding you did. Never have I seen a celebration come together so perfectly in such a short time. Thinking of you will always make me smile! XOXOXOX – Karen
