SIMPLY ENGAGED: Shannon + Steven

Shannon contacted me a few weeks ago and although we haven't met yet we have been able to chat on the phone! She is super sweet and coming down hopefully sometime this summer so I will get to meet her and her fiance!!!! They live up in New York and we are just now getting started on their wedding next spring in Savannah... (hopefully the weather is a little nicer next April... knock on wood...) Anyway, I look forward to meeting them soon!!!!! I loved reading about their story, I think stories like theirs show you that some love is just meant to be, and you don't always have to push things because in the end... what is meant to happen will always find a way and will always bring you back to each other. :) Thanks for sharing Shannon + Steven and I look forward to meeting you both soon!!!! Oh and that rescue dog is adorable. I think he should probably be in the wedding too...


How + Where They Met:
We have been friends since I was 13 and he was 15.  My best friend met his friend online and we met through them.  We were intermittently friends with him and his group of friends for several years.  We actually dated when I was 21 and he decided that it was best to put it off since I was away at college. One day, I told him that I had an extra Mets ticket and he said was able to come.  The rest is history! We slowly went from rekindling our friendship and then to dating.  

The proposal:
He proposed at the finish line of my 2013 NYC Half Marathon.  I ran for our Rescue Dog that we have had since June and was on Team ASPCA and able to raise money for them.  He made sure that Rusty was there and had my Twin Sister and parents witness the proposal.  I was so delirious when I finished.  It was the best day of my life.  

Why Savannah?
We went to Savannah for our 2 year anniversary and fell in Love with it.  We love historical cities and old homes.  Savannah is one of our favorite cities in the US! 

Wedding Date:
April 5th, 2014

What are you looking forward to most on your wedding day?
I am looking forward to calling Steve my husband!
