Real Wedding | Shannon & Paul
Personally, I love when you can sense how grounded a bride really is.  Then you know that the wedding is just the beginning of a long and happy life together.  That’s how I felt after reading about Shannon and Paul’s wedding.  Read on and I think you’ll agree. wedding dresses

Shannon & Paul | June 27, 2009 | June Lake, California

How we met
Paul was working for the water department of the tiny little beach community I was living in. He had noticed me around town walking around with my pet rats on my shoulder. A couple weeks later, I was out with friends and this guy came up to me and asked, “Where are your rats?”  We ended up talking for hours and the rest is history.prom dresses

How he proposed
When we had the opportunity to start up a new business in South Carolina, we jumped at the chance but I had to do the move without him. Paul worked for a busy medical sleep practice that books patients months in advance. This meant that not only would he stay behind and work for 6 weeks, we would be apart for the holidays as well. We had been dating for about 14 months and had never spent more than two nights apart. On top of all this, Paul agreed to move from California to South Carolina without ever visiting his new home. The move was a huge step for us and I was worried he would not like it. The minute he stepped off the plane, I took him to my favorite beach to show him the beauty of Charleston.  I packed a picnic and we watched the waves and embraced each other for hours.  When he asked me to stand up, I thought he wanted to go home but all of the sudden, he was on one knee telling me how much he loved me, how he never wanted to be apart again and asked me to be his wife.Evening Gowns

The ceremony
Paul has been going to June Lake since he was a kid. When he brought me up there to go camping the first year of dating, I too fell in love with the quaint little town. In fact, we went to the Double Eagle for a drink and as we sat on the lawn by the stream, we thought about how nice it would be to get married there. Three years later, we did just that.Prom Gowns
