Our Love Story

Our story began in Norfolk, Virginia on a fall evening. The night Shelly and Shaun first met was at Shelly’s new apartment, an apartment she happened to share with Shaun’s best friend’s sister. Fast-forward two months and many friends’ get-togethers later, they shared their first kiss at midnight on New Years Day. After parting ways that night and sleeping off their celebration cocktails, they went on their first date January 2nd. The following month, during a ski trip, Shaun said to Shelly, “I don’t think we should be dating anymore.” Understandable confusion washed over Shelly’s face, then Shaun-with a quick recovery-asked, “Will you be my girlfriend?”

On December 26th, 2014 Shaun displayed an enormous act of love; he got down on one knee and asked for Shelly’s hand in marriage-with the help of their 6-month old puppy named Scotch. And now, friends and family, we are so ready to say, “I do!” We invite you to share in our holy matrimony and to continue to be a part of our every day as husband and wife.

All our love,,
Shelly and Shaun
