What began as a chance meeting on a boat evolved into a journey spanning years, continents, and life's challenges for Shannon and Mike. After a year-long combat deployment and years of separation, they found their way back to each other. Their love story reached new heights on the Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, where, under the twilight canopy, Mike took a knee and asked the question that changed their lives forever.

Their intimate and elegant wedding at Chapters on the Horizon captured by Alder & Root Photography, beautifully reflected their relationship and radiated love and joy against the stunning Wisconsin landscape. The evening was highlighted by their first dance to "Talk to Me" by Chayce Beckham, a song whose lyrics resonated with the couple, encapsulating the emotions of their long-distance love and journey. Shannon and Mike celebrated in modern style with their formal and minimalistic black and white theme to match the timeless and simplistic beauty of their everlasting love. Be enchanted and inspired by the all the classy details of their La Crosse, Wisconsin celebration below!
