Shanley and Austin have a unique love, it’s a kind of love you don’t see everyday! When we first met them they told us they weren’t technically engaged...you could imagine our surprise!
You see, even without an official proposal, they just knew they would spend the rest of their lives together. Jason couldn't be more excited as meant we got to be apart of the proposal too! So on a snowy Super Bowl Sunday Jason hid behind a pile of wood and waited. Austin told Shanley they were going target shooting, and as she was getting sighted in, he made his move. He got down on one knee and asked the question that they and all their family already knew the answer too. :)
Their wedding day was absolutely perfect. The sun shining warmly as we walked into the picturesque church. As we approached the girls room we were greeted by the sounds of giggling and excitement. The bridesmaids were some of the kindest girls ever. It was apparent to anyone who came in contact with them that day how much they all loved and adored Shanley. When a button went missing from her dress the girls rallied and within an hour the dry cleaner was there sewing on the missing button. The guys were no different, ok maybe a little less giggling. But the love for Austin was apparent.
If we could describe the theme of the day it would be “we’re all family”. By the end of the day we truly both felt like family. Maybe it was the fact that the church was Austin’s childhood church, or the fact that the reception was held in Austin’s parents beautiful backyard, but we believe it was because of the people. The kind of welcoming spirit and a joy that pulls you in, the kind of people you would be lucky enough to call family.
Shanley and Austin, we are so happy for you both and so blessed to have been apart of such a beautiful day!
