Liz + Shawn

How did you meet?

We actually attended the same high school, but reconnected on social media 7 years after.

When did you know they were the one?

Very quickly. He supported me through a tough time, after only one month together and I knew he would be there for the rest of my life.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

His smile.
His strength and motivation.
His sense of humour.

Who proposed and how?

He proposed to me on a vacation in Maui. I had absolutely no idea and he chose the most perfect ring.

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

I fell in love with my dress over a year before I got married. I tried it on, it was one of the only dresses I saw online that I liked and I keep coming back. I knew full beaded would’ve been to heavy for a tropical wedding, so I went half crepe. It was perfect!

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

First look! All my butterflies disappeared when I saw him.

What were your favourite details? 

Everything. I know that sounds cheesy, but the location was incredible, the flowers, food, company and dance floor. I wouldn’t change a thing!

What advice would you tell other brides?

Relax a bit. It will all come together, no one will focus on the tiny details, and try to enjoy the day! You only get one!

Any standout vendors?

Our wedding planner, tropical Maui weddings, Sherron, was absolutely amazing!
