I recently had the pleasure of working with Meghan and Shannon, a couple who desired a wedding filled with signatures of both their individual personalities and mutual passions and interests. As they shared with me special memories and significant details of their relationship that they wanted to incorporate into the big day, we were able to create an event that reflected their love for each other, and their new life together.
Good luck, Meghan and Shannon!
The Big Picture
Meghan and Shannon, both natives of Kentucky, share a love of Fairhope and chose to hold their ceremony at Sacred Heart Chapel on the bay in Fairhope with a reception at Point Clear Tennis Club. Hosting approximately 100 guests – all close friends and family, but visiting from all over the globe! – the couple’s chosen venues proved to be perfect locales to fit their vision of an elegant yet intimate affair.
All the Details
Meghan and Shannon chose to personalize their wedding by incorporating details of their backgrounds, interests, and personalities. Leslie Davis of Freshly Bold Photography did an AMAZING job of capturing the day perfectly! Here’s a sampling…
To highlight Shannon’s passion for rowing, the couple chose to have guests sign a pair of oars in lieu of a guest book.
Guests were treated to individual bottles of maple syrup straight from Vermont, the location in which Meghan and Shannon were engaged.
As is tradition, the couple commemorated their new life together by ringing the church bell after the ceremony.
A nod to their Kentucky roots, the couple chose to toast their vows with champagne garnished with sprigs of lavender.
