Shannon and Edwin met at Summer Beach Project, a trip organized by Campus Outreach, a ministry for students at local colleges. Although they were going to different schools, fate would have it that they be placed on the same team for the trip. Pretty great, right?! Over time, they grew closer as friends and eventually a couple after the trip was said and done, and Edwin took Shannon to the adorable, Marietta Square in Marietta GA to propose. After surprising her with a sweet lunch date, he took her to all of the places that were special to them in the area, including the spot where they had their first date on the 4th of July. As they went from one place to the next, Edwin read a poem about each location and it’s significance, and ultimately ended the adventure at the gazebo in the park where he got down on one knee. Trust me, these two are just as sweet as their story.
On the day of their wedding, Shannon and Edwin privately read love letters from each other as happy, pre-wedding tears rolled down their faces. There’s obviously something magical about the wedding day as a whole, but the few minutes before you walk down the aisle…that’s a whole other bag of emotions. There’s so much anticipation, excitement and happiness felt at once, and these two expressed it so sweetly. Their wedding was gorgeous and Berry College’s Frost Chapel was the perfect setting. Their reception at Ford Dining Hall at the “castles” on campus was equally beautiful, and they ended the day with a grand exit with family and friends tossing snow-flake confetti in the air (it made for pretty epic photos if you ask us). We can’t forget to mention the Thunderbird they drove away in – talk about getting the honey moon started off right…sorry not sorry for the cheesiness y’all. I can’t help it.
Anyways, we’re so excited for these two and can’t wait to see where life takes them! Congratulations once again Mr & Mrs Choate!
