Real Wedding: Shannon + Patrick at The Cookery

Any couple who has a favor of dog treats from their pups on their human's wedding day is bound to have a fun wedding. Shannon & Patrick are one of those couples you see together and now that they are meant to be. They took many moments on their wedding day to just enjoy that it was really happening. Their wedding was truly a reflection of them and their personalities. I love it when the groom is involved in the planning and Patrick was instrumental in every step. He even designed their seating chart, favors (luggage tags), and a few other signs. They love to travel so the couple named all of their tables after places they have travelled and tied in the travel theme throughout their big day.

And my favorite part, their bridesmaids and groomsmen even decorated their car! I love this tradition but I don't have a lot of couples who do it anymore - so it was really fun to watch their friends be sneaky and get their car all decked out. Imagine their surprise when they got to the end of their glow-stick exit and saw their car!

Bon voyage Shannon & Patrick. I hope you have many travels in life and enjoyed your honeymoon to Fiji and New Zealand! I'm still jealous ;)

Cheers, Whitney
