When we first met Shannon, she had her large and loving family in tow. Altogether we submitted votes for our favorite dress and many months later, we are so excited to share this breathtaking bride in LD6015 (paired with our custom tipped long veil!) The connection between Shannon & Matt is undeniable, as captured through each and every photo by Al Brits with GR Productions. Read on for these lovebirds' modern love story...
Saja: How did you meet?
Shannon: We met the “old-fashioned” way……at a bar. I had just moved out of New York City (after 13 years) across the river to my new home in Weehawken, NJ and was out enjoying happy hour with a new neighbor. Matt was on his way into the city for the evening, but thankfully made a pit-stop before crossing the river.
Saja: How did he propose?
Shannon: Matt proposed exactly where we had spent so many hours getting to know each other and falling in love, on our balcony overlooking NYC in Weehawken. It was just like any other night, except it wasn’t. It was perfect, I couldn’t imagine it being anywhere else.
Saja: What was your favorite part of the day?
Shannon: Walking down the aisle with my father and seeing Matt in the distance. Our eyes locked and we couldn’t stop smiling. We could feel the love, joy and excitement from everyone around us, it was more than I ever imagined.
Saja: Which of the photos is your favorite? Why?
Shannon: Matt and I walking back down the aisle together. We look and feel so naturally happy, I can feel it every time I look at it.
