Shannon and Spencer hosted an effortlessly stunning Stone Tower Winery wedding in September. Spencer proposed in 2018 and they began planning their wedding for the summer of 2020. However, in early 2019, Shannon’s mom’s health declined and they decided to get married in a small, intimate ceremony while she was healthy enough to attend. Sadly, her mom passed away before their big celebration, but Shannon and Spencer continued planning their big day. As we all know, COVID-19 hit in March 2020, which led to them having to move their date from June to September. The two changed plans with grace, knowing that whatever their day looks like, it will be meaningful and enjoyable.
When their September wedding day finally came, it proved to be a beautiful testament to Shannon & Spencer’s love and commitment to each other! With just about 100 of their friends and family, they celebrated at Stone Tower Winery on a truly perfect day. It was such an honor to photograph all of these moments for Shannon and Spencer. I especially loved watching the way he admired her during their first look and as she came down the aisle. It’s as if he was reminiscing on all the years they’d been together! The best part of all? Shannon found out she was pregnant a few weeks before their wedding day! They decided to use a custom denim jacket to announce the surprise to their family and friends.
