Before every wedding we like to get together with the bride and groom. That connection is so important because it lets us get to the know the couple before we are filming them on their wedding day. I met Shannon and Mike at a coffee shop the week of their wedding and I don’t know that I’ve laughed so much at a pre wedding meeting. They were just a joy to be around.
It was the perfect precursor for their wedding. There was so much joy and laughter during the entire day. From the speeches to the people interacting to their vows. The entire day was so much fun for everyone involved. They are people that I could easy see myself hanging out with outside of a wedding.
The wedding took place at the beautiful Glen Magna Farms. It was the first time I’ve been there, but it has some of the most beautifully green landscaping I’ve ever seen. What a perfect place to get married! For the first look there was this tree whose branches draped around the tree to the ground. It created this tent like structure that you could stand right in the middle.
The location was beautiful, but their reaction to seeing each other for the first time was even better. I’m pretty sure Mike was close to tears. A very sweet moment that they will cherish forever.
Congratulations Shannon and Mike. Here is a bit of their story! I hope you enjoy!
