Shawn & Stacy | A Fall Historic Mankin Mansion Wedding

Before you start looking at this gorgeous wedding, let me warn you that it is on photo overload – but for good reason!!  This is definitely the most photos I have ever put in a blog post.  I had so many more I wanted to add but I held back a little.  That just means Shawn & Stacy will have an even better time looking through their full gallery at all the obvious AND hidden gems (their reception photos are insane!).

I have been anticipating this wedding day since the night Stacy first emailed me!  I realized how much fun Stacy is a couple years ago when I got to photograph the wedding of one of her best friends.  {Side note – Stacy caught the bouquet at that wedding!}  I knew a little bit about her and definitely knew she would be a GEM to work with!  I had never really gotten to talk to Shawn though, other than meeting in passing a couple times.  After their engagement session in the early summer, I felt like we had all been friends for years!  We had a blast and it just made me that much more impatient about waiting for their wedding day to arrive. If you want to know more about their love story and how crazy they are for each other – go read that post here

Shawn & Stacy said their vows on the coldest day of the season…and it was perfect!  The sun was shining, the entire venue was stunning, and everyone there was so much fun.  There is a saying (and a Little Big Town song} that says “good people know good people”.  Good people surround themselves with good people…and that was shown to be incredibly true for these two on the best day of their lives.

Leanne & Steve (MOH and Best Man) both stated in their speeches how amazing Shawn & Stacy each are individually.  They are just genuinely good people!  But once they finally started dating, they became even better TOGETHER!  Their love for each other is so obvious and so strong, everyone around them can see it!  They have a passion for life & adventure, as well as a true love for their family & friends.

They aren’t just great people – those that surround them are as well!  Good people know good people and this wedding day was FILLED with just that!  Once the entire wedding party came together, Shawn and Stacy lit up.  They had been with their separate groups all morning (which was SO much fun – I just love these girls!), but when they all got together, the day became even more fun!  The boys saw Stacy and immediately were raving over how beautiful she is.  The girls couldn’t help but tear up while watching through the window as Shawn saw Stacy at their first look, then were so happy to give him hugs before photos started.

There is so much more I could say about this day – literally could go on and on!  We had an amazing time and can’t say enough wonderful things about all the vendors we got to work with!  They each went above and beyond to be sure the day was perfect & everyone was well taken care of.

Mr. & Mrs. Rogowski – we truly love you both and loved being able to capture this day for y’all!
