Shannon & Eric’s Wedding

Simple, elegant, and classic…that is how Shannon described her dress, but I think it describes her whole wedding. What a beautiful and elegant wedding Shannon and Eric had, and all of the while still being simple and focused on just one thing–their union. We met up with Shannon and Eric at Shannon’s mother’s house and it was spectacular! She had beautiful gardens in both the back and front yards as well as a beautiful garden house. It was the perfect spot for pictures.

After taking pictures of Shannon & Eric and all of the group photos, we headed to Lindsay Street Hall for a beautiful ceremony and reception. This was the first wedding we have photographed there and we just loved it! I love that it’s a church and still feels traditional, but since it’s a blank slate, a bride can make it modern and her own. It was really hot outside but everything turned out great and we had a blast shooting this understated wedding.

Congrats to Shannon & Eric, we loved your wedding and we hope you love your pictures!

Here is Shannon & Eric’s wedding and story:

How did the two of you meet?
We met in High School, however we did not start dating until our senior year in college.  We both attended MTSU.

How would you describe the way you feel about each other?
I think that if you’ve been together for 10 years and still can’t wait to marry someone, then you’ve found the one!

Describe the proposal.
Well, VERY like Eric, absolutely not planned at all!  We were at home one night sitting on the couch talking, and then he got up, came back a few minutes later and just opened the ring box and asked me to marry him.

What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day?
Walking down the aisle seeing Eric and all my friends and family together.

How did you decide on your dress?
I wanted a dress that was simple, elegant, and classic.  This dress was all of that with a touch of vintage and I loved it!

What’s next for you as a couple?  What are you looking forward to in the future?
Starting our family.
