Nick & McKenna Shaw’s wedding blog

Our Story

Nick and McKenna met in early spring 2015. While there was an immediate connection, their lives were just beginning and relationships were an afterthought. McKenna had just moved to Dallas after graduating from Stephen F. Austin State University, while Nick had recently moved back to Dallas from West Texas. After a few casual dates, things began to get more serious as the Summer came to close. Brunch dates, nights in Uptown and Game of Thrones watch parties were the beginning of something special. They couldn’t get enough of each seeing each other. As time went on and basketball seasons came and went, Nick knew that he had found someone special. They had fallen in love. In the Summer of 2016, they adopted their sweet pup, Jax, and they both knew that they were becoming a family. Nick proposed on June 11th, 2017 and the rest is history. They would like to thank everyone that has helped build and be a part of their relationship to make it to this day. The couple looks forward to celebrating with each and everyone one of you on their wedding day!

Nick proposed to me in Klyde Warren Park on a very early Sunday Morning in the same spot where we had one of
our first dates. Same Chair same picnic table and all. After he popped the questions I was in shock and everything
was kind of a blur, so I asked him if he could ask me again. So, he did. Lol. After the proposal he had all of our family
and friends secretly waiting at a restaurant, so we could share a celebratory brunch.

Valerie & Edward’s Catholic wedding previews

I shot a gorgeous Catholic wedding at St Jude Catholic Church of Mansfield

Valerie & Edward have such a special story and have two handsome little boys together.

From the bride:

My husband and I met at the start of our senior year in high school. He was a football player and I was a cheerleader and we met through mutual friends. Over the course of 6 months we became the best of friends, even though he always wanted to be more.
However, I started to fall for him and the exact
moment I knew I was in love with him was on my birthday 2004 when he skipped his lunch, drove across town 30 mins to a flower shop to buy me the most beautiful bouquet of tulips with a bright pink bow on it, drove back to class late, sat though class with the flowers then walked across the school to give them to me. I had only ever told him once that my favorite flower was tulips and my favorite color was pink, but he remembered. We officially started dating exactly a month later and we have been inseparable ever since. My husband has always been a romantic and over the last 14 years I have fallen more in love with him every day. We always knew we would get married but life happened, and we just hadn’t been able to till now.
The Proposal: On Christmas eve Dec 2013 we went to the children’s mass as we always do every year. There was a large present under the tree and all month he kept telling me it was going to be the best Christmas ever. I kept telling him that as long as I had him and my boys that it would be great regardless. He continued to tell me it would be just awesome. What I didn’t know was he had taken my oldest with him in October to choose my ring together and he had been planning to propose since then. Before mass I told him that I wanted a family picture but my youngest son was just months old at the time and I had to leave mass to nurse him in the car (the black dress I wore wasn’t nursing friendly) We ended up leaving right after but when we got home, I was in the kitchen about to walk upstairs and he told me not to change because we still had to take our family picture. He then asks me to stand in front of our Christmas tree and says that we should let our oldest take one of just him and I. Little did I know he was actually recording. Right before we take what I think is a picture he holds my hands tells me how much he loves me and how blessed he is to have spent this many Christmases with me and how amazing and wonderful he thinks I am. Somehow between those sweet words and the next minute I just remember him asking me to put this brown paper bag on the table, which is where he had been hiding the box with the ring. As I turn around to put the bag on the table and when I turn back around to look at him he is on one knee reminding me that he is looking forward to forever with me.

Katy & Dennis – March 29, 2018 at The Springs Rockwall

Katy and Dennis were married at The Springs Event Venue in Rockwall, TX.

Dennis and Katy grew up in the small towns of Princeton and Farmersville and went to rival high schools. Dennis was very active in sports and dance and Katy was involved in cheerleading and dance. They had never met until a mutual friend suggested that they had similar interests. Once their paths crossed  junior year of high school, the rest was history! They moved to Los Angeles after graduation and have been pursuing the fitness and entertainment industry ever since. Their dance background plays a huge role in how they met and they continue to share that passion with each other. They also enjoy travel and adventure, and they have exciting things planned for their future together. March 29th, 2018 will be their 5th anniversary.

Dennis proposed to Katy on Christmas Eve in 2016, he surprised her along with friends and family on her way home from the airport for the holidays. A link to the proposal video is attached below.

Katy’s bridals at the Dallas Arboretum

I can finally show off Katy’s gorgeous bridals we did at the Dallas Arboretum a couple of months ago. She was stunning in her gown from Leann’s Bridal and her mother’s original veil. The beautiful bouquet from Petals & Pearls Unique Designs complimented everything so nicely.

Katy & Dennis were married last night at The Springs Venue in Terrell, TX

Emily & Miles tied the knot on March 11, 2018!

Emily & Miles are the sweetest couple but they also have a very comic side.

The ceremony was held at the gorgeous Cross of Christ Lutheran Church with reception at The Manderely both located in DeSoto, TX. I was in love with the colors she chose for her bridesmaids dresses and the way the beautiful bouquets tied in so nicely. I spotted some purple trees at the venue and was able to come up with some photo ideas that turned out just beautiful.
