Chesapeake Bay Engagement || Shannon + Chris
Shannon and Chris are two wonderful folks with a sweet story. While separately attending a mutual friend’s wedding, they were both assigned seats at the single’s table and began catching up. They had actually known each other since 6th grade but hardly stayed in contact as the years passed. During the newlywed couples’ first dance, Chris buffed up the courage to ask Shannon to join him for the dance! She said no. They continued chatting and, when he asked again, she said yes. They dated long-distance for the next year while Shannon was in North Carolina until she moved back to Maryland to be closer to her family – and closer to Chris :). This past summer, Shannon’s family went on their annual vacation – this time to France and Ireland with a plus one. While exploring Paris, Chris took Shannon to the Love Lock Bridge as they wished their wishes. Within a few hours, Chris knelt on one knee in front of the sparkling lights of the Eiffel Tower and asked Shannon to marry him. (!!!). They celebrated with champagne and breathed in the perfect moments of excitement on the lawn in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Our adventure together at the Chesapeake Bay was so enjoyable. We hiked around, paused to take photos, and continued chatting and getting excited about their wedding. I adore the colors, the peacefulness, and the love that these two share!
