• Ryan + Shannon

I’ve been waiting for this day for a LONG TIME!!! I LOVE shooting friend’s weddings… especially friends that we have been able to watch their relationship unfold over the last several years. I remember living next door to Ryan in college and seeing Shannon walk across our backyard to go hangout with him. (Sounds like I was a creeper looking through the windows… but you could see everything from the Middle House kitchen! :) A few of her friends hung out next door for a few weeks and then we started to notice that JUST Shannon was hanging out at the guy’s house more and more. It wasn’t long before they were official. Ryan and Shannon started dating and they were inseparable. They were best friends from the start and

as the years and progressed,  the Lord has been preparing them for this past Saturday.  Ryan and Shannon were married at Stevenson Ridge in Spotsylvania, Virginia last Saturday. You may recognize this venue because I just shot there at the end of June! I’d shoot at Steveson Ridge all the time if I could because it’s gorgeous! Everything about their day was perfect. The massive thunderstorms bypassed their quaint, outdoor ceremony and we finished portraits just before storm #2 rolled in!  I couldn’t have been more excited for Ryan and Shannon as they pledged their life to one another and to the Lord on their wedding day. I loved everything about their day… the decor, the prep, the bridal party (Ok my husband was in the bridal party so I’m a little biased!).  I’ll never get tired of capturing our friend’s wedding days. There is nothing Michael and I love more than to see our amazing friends from CNU and so Saturday was such fun time! I hope you enjoy these favorites and Ryan and Shannon, CONGRATULATIONS FRIENDS!! Michael and I adore you guys!! Here’s a warm welcome into the old married people’s club!!!! (It’s an awesome club:). Have an amazing honeymoon and I can’t wait to see what the Lord does with your marriage and your new life together!! We love you!!!
