Shannon + Ryan
Hello everyone I am a little behind on blogging 2014 weddings, but things have been busy around here! So I figured I would start with the first wedding of the year, back in March.
Shannon and Ryan met with me because they were having a hard time planning their wedding and wanted to scale it back. We know how things can get out of hand very quickly when planning a wedding! After a lot of discussion Shannon and Ryan decided that they wanted to do a very small, intimate wedding with their closest family and friends. They wanted it to be really soon! And they wanted it to be a surprise!
Maggiano's was the perfect venue for an intimate wedding it's warm ambiance and yummy Italian food. To get all of the guests to the wedding without knowing they were going to a wedding, I sent out Engagement party invitations to their closest family. After everyone arrived and mingled for a bit, Shannon and Ryan broke the news- they were getting married right now!
The guests were so surprised and very excited!
Then they exchanged vows right there in front of everyone that is closest to them.
Everything turned out beautiful and they were happily married!
