We were so excited when Shannon and Rob told us that they were still planning to have their October 2020 wedding. Shannon and Rob were our very first engagement session of 2020 right before Covid came to town. That session was beautiful and you should totally check it out.
Their wedding day was so much fun. The morning started with all the girls and guys getting ready at a local hotel. I remember walking into the hotel lobby and I could hear her giggling coming from a conference room a few doors from the lobby. Upon walking into that room the girls were beaming with smiles. Shannon looks so rested and excited for the day. Patrick meet Rob soon after at the venue to find him beaming as well. If there’s one thing we remember about meeting these guys it was how sweet and smiley they were not just with each other but just talking about their wedding and their plans. Prior to the ceremony Shannon shared a first look with her dad. That exchange was sweet and tender. Proud might be a better word choice for his view of his daughter on her wedding day. Shannon and Rob chose not to do a first look which I thought was so special. Patrick and I did a first look when we got married so whenever any of our couples opt not to do a first look, it resonates with us. Rob’s reaction of seeing Shannon was just so special. Long await and anticipated.
Upon being announce husband and wife Shannan and Rob receded out to meet their extended family and their bridal party. The rest of the day was full of fun and memories. Patrick and I got through a large list of family photos but we were so excited for the sunset segment and time with our couple as we would cruise around the golf course. Shannon and Rob had a beautiful October wedding with some of our favorite weather. It was not too cold and it was not too hot. The reception was perfect in size. One of my favorite aspects of the venue they chose is what it looks like from a guest perspective watching first dance and parent dances. You’ll find as you look through the photos that this perspective never gets old. The rest of the night was full of great memories amazing speeches from siblings. I have to say that the sibling speeches were some of the best we’ve heard in a long time. So funny that guests were belly laughing, the kind of laughing that makes it hurt. Something else really sweet about this day was the dynamic of the families. I absolutely love getting to know families on wedding days. The parents of both sides were incredible to work with. We both felt like we were part of the day and treated like family.
Shannon and Rob thank you so much for choosing us and trusting us with your day. We loved being a part of it from beginning to end. Being alongside you guys from the start of your wedding planning all the way to you becoming husband and wife is always so special for us. We don’t take that for granted. We hope 2021 brings you incredible memories. As you look through your wedding photos in the months and years to come we hope that the theme of your heart remains of joy and laughter.
