ANDREW & SHANNON: ROMANTIC & INTIMATE WEDDING AT BELMONT MANOR // MARYLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Looking back on Shannon and Andrew’s wedding day fills our hearts with so much love and happiness! I (Shelby) have known Shannon since elementary school and it is always extra special to see a childhood friend grow up, find their soulmate, get married, and start a family of their own! Shannon and Andrew were without a doubt one of the sweetest couples we’ve ever had and we laughed and cried all over again while editing their wedding gallery! Their ceremony was one we will never forget — it was romantic, heartfelt, and so adorable!
Andrew and Shannon have a little one named Connor, and wow is he a cutie!! Their love for their baby boy just radiates from them and they are so sweet to watch with him. Shannon and Andrew’s wedding ceremony was so significant to us because they included Connor in a way we’d never seen before (even though he was sleeping lol!). They read a verse from “The House at Pooh Corner” to him and planted a new family tree with soil from Shannon’s childhood home in Maryland and Andrew’s home in California.
Not only was their ceremony beautiful, but Shannon was the real MVP Bride! She made all of the bouquets and boutonnieres for their wedding and they were absolutely stunning!! Even though it was a colder than normal day for October, Shannon sported a gorgeous little jacket and she and Andrew looked like something out of a magazine together! There were toasts made by Shannon’s little sister that didn’t leave a single dry eye at the reception, Andrew’s brother that gave us all a good laugh, and both of their Dad’s with words of love and encouragement. To top off the toasts, Shannon and Andrew wanted to thank all of their guests for coming and being there with them to celebrate as well as say thank you to Jimmy and I for being there to capture their day! That has never happened before at a wedding, but it is something that truly touched us and will stick with us forever!
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Gorini!! We know you both have such an amazing life ahead of you and we are so excited to see all of your adventures together!
