• Travis + Shannon

The officiant knew them well. She and her husband are dear friends of Travis and Shannon’s and so their ceremony was more personal than most. After Shannon walked down the aisle, the pastors shared that these two had waited and dreamed of this day for SO so long. They were high school sweethearts and they were beating the odds. Most high school sweethearts don’t make it this far and they did!! Travis and Shannon started dating in high school and then did long distance throughout college. After YEARS of saying goodnight and leaving each other at the end of evening, the were finally getting married and those days of saying goodnight are over!!! Michael and I remember those days well. It was such a welcomed change to never say goodbye at the end of the evening and to officially live together!! Travis and Shannon have officially started their new life together and it’s exciting!

What’s even more exciting is that they were just going to have a “stay-cation” in Richmond after the wedding since they are in Grad school and a big trip wasn’t in the budget…. but their family and friends surprised them… BIG time! During the reception, a dear family friend got up to make a toast and shared with the happy couple that he just didn’t think it was right for them not to have a honeymoon. So several months ago, he sent out ONE email to their family and friends and together, they bought Travis and Shannon a cruise!! Travis knew this was coming but Shannon had NO IDEA!!!! Talk about an amazing surprise right?!!! It was so much fun watching Shannon react to all of this. Squeals, hugs and so many tears!

That one aspect of the day was incredible but there were SO many other amazing parts to their celebration! Their ceremony was so beautiful and their toasts were heart warming. Overall,  Travis and Shannon had a dream backyard wedding. They were surrounded by family and friends and they danced under the twinkle lights….as husband and wife. What more could you want?! We are SO excited for them and all that God has in store for their marriage and their new life together!! We had a blast photographing these two and if you didn’t see their hashtag on my instagram post this weekend, it’s awesome!! Operation #agingerandagiant was a success!! Enjoy viewing their day from our perspective!
