When Chase called me nearly 2 years ago and told me that he and Shannon were engaged, it was no surprise to me. Anyone can see that they have an unconditional love for one another. The surprise was that he wanted me to shoot his wedding. At that time, I had never even shot a wedding.
Each one I photograph is special to me, but this one was extra special because Shannon and Chase are great friends of mine.
Congratulations guys and I know you will have a wonderful future together.
The ceremony and reception were held at The Orchard House in Concord, NC.
Shannon and Chase wanted to stand back to back and talk to one another before the ceremony. Obviously without seeing each other. I have done this several times, but this was one of the most emotional. As you can see they were both holding back tears as they told each other one simple thing, “I love you.”
