Wedding at The Arling | Mary and Shaun

Hello everyone!

Mary and Shaun’s October 1st wedding at The Arling and State Street United Methodist Church in Bowling Green, KY was such an incredibly sweet day, and we’re so excited to share some of our favorite images today! Mary and Shaun met through mutual friends her senior year of high school and his freshman year of college, and were good friends before they began dating. We’ve absolutely loved getting to know them throughout their wedding planning process, and one thing I always notice is just how sweet they are together and how much they enjoy being together. On their wedding day, their friends and family were so excited to be there to celebrate with them! Mary and Shaun traveled to Ireland together when they were dating, and their families also have some Irish roots, so they tied in some details from Ireland to the wedding day, including the bagpiper that led them back down the aisle as husband and wife! And Shaun (and many of the groomsmen) is a HUGE University of Tennessee fan. So there were of course nods to that with the guys socks and the incredible groom’s cake. But the best part was UT pulling off their miraculous last second win over Georgia while the guys watched on their phone before the reception! Not only was it an incredibly sweet and emotional day, but the design that went into the day was also stunning. My jaw actually dropped when we walked into the Arling and saw all the beautiful design work that Lydia and her team put together! The perfect background for everyone to dance the night away!

On to some favorite images of the day!
