Shawna had been planning her dream wedding ever since she was a little girl. Her dream was to find her prince charming and have a magical and romantic fairytale wedding. It was so beautiful to witness her special day, marrying the man of her dreams. Derek and Shawna had known each other for years as they lived right around the corner from each other. I think marrying your childhood friend is co cute! I just love to hear that these fairytale love stories are actually real!
I love how we incorporated Summer (Shawna’s golden retriever) into her wedding. She did an awesome job balancing these rings on her nose! It was so adorable! Shawna’s dress was such a stunning princess gown. It had a long train and gorgeous detailing on the bodice. Shawna wore glistening princess heels to match. Could it not be any more blinged out? So awesome! Derek looked sharp with customised cufflinks with their initials and their wedding date engraved into it. What a nice touch!
Shawna and Derek got married at St. Francis de Sales Roman Catholic Church with a beautiful ceremony witnessed by their family and friends. Shawna’s decorated Deer Creek Golf Club with green uplighting with pink/white details to gift the effect of being in an enchanted forest. I think the most amazing thing was that Shawna baked her own wedding cake. You have to scroll down and see how incredible it turned out! Just amazing!!!
Shawna & Derek, thank you for having me be your wedding photographer to capture your special day. I hope the magical fairytale of your marriage continues and you both live happily ever after <3
