Outdoor Ceremony Pear Tree Estate | Brandon + Shanon
On an unseasonably cool (hallelujah!) August afternoon Brandon and Shanon said their 'I do's' during a sweet outdoor ceremony at Pear Tree Estate in the country just north of Champaign, IL. Their wedding had so many thoughtful touches, such as having some of the lace from her mom's wedding gown incorporated into her floral bouquet.
Brandon and Shanon have known each other for 5 years so everyone knew getting married was gonna happen....eventually. When Brandon FINALLY proposed (also at Pear Tree Estate - you can see it here!), Shanon had told us it was about time! ;-) Brandon and Shanon have a little boy named Lane that was their ring bearer and he's so stinkin' cute! So excuse us, if you happen to see more pic of a young boy wearing cowboys boots instead of the bride and groom. Just can't help it... he's charming and oh those sweet baby blue eyes, ahhhh he is a cutie!
During the ceremony, when it came time to exchange rings... the bling pulled out for Shanon was shiny all right. It was a shiny wrapper with a ring pop hidden inside. How fun! As their son was getting antsy standing up with the groomsmen, they opened up the cherry red ring pop. They handed that to Lane and then got the real ring out for Shanon. It seems fair that they both get a ring... makes it super legit that way since they all have rings. They are now officially a family of 3 and we couldn't be happier for them.
Congratulations and best wishes for a lifetime of togetherness!
Show Brandon & Shanon some love!
