Shannon and Adrian had great plans in store for their July 2020 wedding celebration. Unfortunately, they were thrown a curveball with Covid 19. Rather than postpone their wedding day, this couple decided to roll with the punches and create for themselves an intimate wedding ceremony at a private residence with their close family and friends. Nearly all of the elements they put together themselves.  Shanon’s sister Erin put the flower arrangements together using flowers from Trader Joe’s.  They also did all the signs and the ceremony set up themselves!  This wedding is a great example of keeping it simple and successful in a DIY (Do it yourself wedding)!  Of course, there are certain things that it is worth spending some money on: Shannon got her gown from JJ’s House bridal shop, she also made sure to have professional hair and makeup done by stylist Osman Salam (@bridesofoz).  And obviously, Dave Bigler was there to capture the wedding photography.

Last but definitely not least we must give credit to the Dog of Honor Evie Mae and the Best Dog Murphy!  haha, the joy of a DIY wedding in your backyard, your favorite dogs can be in the ceremony!

Congrats to this awesome bridal couple!
