Have you ever looked up because you thought someone was staring at you only to lock eyes with someone who was indeed staring right at you? Krystal was sitting in class one day when she felt the gaze of someone and looked up to find that it was Shawn. This happened several times before they finally ended up talking. Shawn was quite taken with her beauty from the start. And while her physical beauty is what attracted Shawn to her initially, it was her inner beauty that caused him to fall truly in love with her. And Krystal fell in love with Shawn too! I love hearing Shawn and Krystal talk about each other. Their faces light up and they just seem so proud to call each other their other half. Like they won the lottery and can’t believe their luck to have found each other. It was truly an honor to have been chosen to document they day they became husband and wife.
Shawn and Krystal got married in the church they attend and held their reception in a friend’s super cute backyard. I love what they did with the space they had-twinkle lights strung across the whole backyard with simple florals and lots of friends and family to celebrate with. We started with getting ready preparations at their respective parents’ houses.

Krystal is seriously one of the most entirely beautiful people I have ever met. She is the epitome of class and sweetness. Special thanks to Heather Begley for doing an excellent job with Krystal’s and her bridesmaids’ make-up! Proud mama.I have a feeling there will be some girls scheduling hair appointments once they see how freakishly cute Krystal’s short hair is. Shawn is quite a handsome gent himself and he has great style!I love these shots Tim captured of Shawn’s brother helping him get ready.The bride hidden away in preparation for the First Look.Should I say on EVERY wedding post that has a First Look how much I love First Looks? Yes? Ok. I adore them. They make my heart happy and make the timeline oh so smooth. Plus, the bride and groom get to have the most precious time alone together to just soak in what is about to happen.

Its one of my favorite places in the world and I think it is quite beautiful. Krystal! You are stunning!Favorite.Can I say that I love that I’m seeing more hats at weddings? I love that the royal wedding is bringing that back =)Sisters.String lights!“Enjoy this moment because it is the last time you will have the upper hand.” -the groom’s brother. SO true! ;)Tim got up on the roof to take these dance shots-which I love! How cute is their first dance?
