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.

Lindsey & Andrew’s wedding previews

Lindsey & Andrew were married on 9/2/18 at Rustic Grace Estate.

Happily Ever After –

They met in 2014 after love at first text when Lindsey agreed to join Drew for a Mexican dinner at La Vista.. Despite Lindsey’s best efforts of poisoning Drew with guacamole on their first date due to a severe allergy, they both survived the nerve-racking first date jitters. Shortly after, we began dating and living with one another. Because of our unique situation, with both of us having kids from previous relationships, our journey took off a bit faster than we could have imagined. The laughs and cries we shared together, paired with our daughters sisterly love for one another, made this unorthodox fairy tale, a dream come true. Without skipping a beat, we began living life as a four person family and selflessly devoting our love, time and effort to each other. Now, three years later, after the fine dining of nachos and margaritas, Drew took a leap of faith and got down on one knee. We have decided to vow our love to each other until death do us part, and we cannot think of any better way to do it than with our amazing family and friends.

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.

Caitlin & Donnie at The Springs!

From the bride:

We met through my partner teacher who knew Donnie from grade school. It took me a month before I let her give him my number, and she gave it to Darla instead! So she forwarded my number to him. He texted me and we immediately hit it off, we made plans for that weekend to go to an FC Dallas game. Everything after just fell into place.

Donnie, Kiersten, and my mom planned an impromptu family house warming for my new apartment. Donnie proceeded to carry a cart of goodies up my 3 flights of stairs in the heat of July. He was a nervous wreck. Donnie asked me to open up mail he “received” that was a baseball card. He said he got a surprise card and he wanted me to open it for luck that it would be a good card. When I opened it it was a baseball card that had a picture of us on it and it said “Will you marry me?” Next thing I know he is on his knee and he asked and of course I could only say YES!!

Ashley & Alan’s wedding previews in Glen Rose, TX

From the bride:

Alan & I met through my sister Krista, who was a coworker and friend of his. When I was looking to move to the Austin area Krista said to reach out to Alan because he had been looking for a roommate. I had met Alan before in social settings, so I reached out and moved in with him in August of 2012.  My plan was to live with him for about six months before getting my own place, but as it turns out there was much more in store for us and we are very excited to start our next chapter as husband and wife.

The wedding took place on Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 6:30 PM on the family property in Glen Rose, TX, Alan’s mom found all vendors who did a phenomenal job, as soon as I have that list I will add them.
