Josh & Shannon are such a stunning, genuine couple and their day was absolutely brimming with class, bubbly energy, and sheer joy. I seriously loved. every. minute. Perhaps one of my favorite details (if I really have to choose!) was the sweetest antique pop-out locket, with photos of Shannon’s mother, uncle and grandparents attached to a fleur de lis pin, which she carried in her bouquet as her something old. And while Shannon elegantly incorporated this piece of tradition, Josh (& all of his guys) rocked up and down the aisle in some custom New Balance running shoes! Perfectly fitting, because Josh is currently training for the Twin Cities Marathon. I seriously hope he crosses the finish line in these hot pink laces!
It is said that a wedding day encompasses nearly every (positive) human emotion, and theirs was no exception. Although Shannon was completely beaming, appearing poised and put-together all day, her choir friends (and childhood besties) got the best of her and surprised her with the most heart-meltingly beautiful a capella serenade in perfect harmony. Don’t worry, Shan. You weren’t the only one all choked up. ;)
We adored getting to know these two! Their personalities complement each other perfectly, they are head-over-heels and it shows.
Cheers Shannon & Josh. Your love is beautiful!
