…We have found the one for whom our soul loves…
Jenny and Shane’s wedding day was a special, yet relaxed, celebration of their commitment to one another. They have been together five years, engaged for two of those years and really just wanted the confirmation of their commitment to be something simple in a beautiful place surrounded by the most important people in our lives. Their wedding day was stay true to the story of them - a little bit crazy, a little bit loud, and a whole lot of love. As much as the day was beautiful and wonderful, Jenny and Shane are most looking forward to continuing their life together as husband and wife.
They met in high over school 20 years ago. They reconnected on Facebook in 2015 and started dating January 2016. At Thanksgiving 2018 dinner Shane proposed with all of the kids in attendance. Jenny and Shane compliment each other, they are best friends, they call each other out on our stuff and they are supportive of each other! They are both foodies, and like trying new restaurants. They like to travel and experience new things together. They enjoy the outdoors, kayaking, fishing, camping, hunting, hiking/walking. They just enjoy hanging out and being together. They love spending time with our kids and grandkids and mutual friends, bowling and go-cart racing, mini golf, amusement parks, etc. They say they are either really lazy together or really adventurous :)
Their first vacation as a couple and family was to Clearwater Beach, best time ever, and it just felt fitting to go back to the place they really bonded as a family at first to say their vows. What started as a simple plan for them to marry on the beach evolved in to something quite a bit more elaborate. Getting married on the Yacht Starship really changed the story of the wedding, and inspired their color choices. Jenny’s ivory dress was flowing and elegant and she wanted something similar for my daughters. The dusty rose color is so pretty and looked stunning on them against the backdrop of the sea. Of course the blue suits for the guys were perfect to set sail sat sea, so really things just all started to fall into place after they booked their venue. They loved the idea of getting married at sea, as no one they know has ever done that!
Some of the most special moments include Jenny getting ready with her girls, and her son walking her down the aisle to give away to Shane. Celebrating with life long friends, and creating memories with the people that mean the most to her remaining in this world’s an incredible joy to capture. Holding hands as husband and wife, enjoying good food and wine, seeing his face when he first saw her ready to go, getting married at sea by a Captain, saying their vows and kissing for the first time as man and wife, watching the sunset while at sea.….all magical moments!
