Published on A Paper Proposal! Â Check out the feature HERE
Shirley & David go way back. Â So far back, that seeing each other as ever being more than friends while attending the same church growing up seemed crazy. Â It wasn’t until David had left for college and come back to that same church years later that he noticed Shirley as someone he wanted to get to know as more than friends. Â Like every great love story David pursued Shirley. Â She politely declined each time he made an attempt to take her out. Â She was not quite sure she was ready to dip her toes into the dating pool just yet. Â It wasn’t until he invited her to go on an annual Horn Blower Cruise around the bay with his friends that Shirley accepted the offer. Â They learned a lot about each other on a more personal level and immediately knew they had a strong bond that would never be broken. Â That was the last time Shirley would politely turn down David because when he got down on one knee in front of family, friends, and strangers on stage at a Christmas Ballet performance, she said, “Yes!” Â Their proposal story brought me to tears as they sat closely next to each other taking turns filling in the details of that perfect night. Â It was a proposal from her best friend; a man made just for her by Him.
I personally fell in love with this couple from the very first email I received from them. Â Shirley signed her email to me, “In His Love, Shirley” which I LOVED! Â It is also the theme around their wedding day! Â Shirley and David put together the most inspiring engagement session complete with food trucks, cupcakes and a Pinterest worthy picnic! Â Their energy, beautiful smiles and playfulness toward each other was so fun to capture!
Love, Love LOVE the details that Shirley planned for their picnic filled with bubbles, treats, books and special nods to the BIG day!
