Shannon and Derek are high school sweethearts who have been dating for nearly a decade. When we met for engagement photos last summer, the wedding seemed so far away. They’ve been together for nearly a third of their lives and finally decided it was time to make it official at their wedding on Saturday.
Shannon and her bridesmaids got ready at her parents’ home. I joined them along with Nicki from Syncopated Pictures. A new film will be posted soon featuring more great moments from this wedding.
Ryan spent his morning with Derek and the groomsmen.

Shannon looks so beautiful! Hair and makeup by Whitney Thompson, bouquets, Church flowers, boutonnieres by Gail Ralicki.

We stopped for some photos at South Park. It was a busy day for weddings (three other weddings were there!).
My favorite from the whole day:
They had a really good dance party!
Shannon’s beautiful mom, Cheryl. I loved her dress.
Congratulations, Shannon and Derek! Have a FANTASTIC time in Hawaii!
