Dana + Shawn

Jayme BasilComment

Dana’s dad mentioned in his speech (not seen) how once you become friends with his daughter, you are friends for life. That was incredibly evident in all the family and friends witnessing the nuptials that day; but also, I am honored to say I’ve known the bride since we were in grade school! Once she had a date and venue picked out, she promptly came to me to make sure I could capture her big day. I was stoked then, but after getting to know the groom and how happy they make one another, I am even more ecstatic for my old friend. Congratulations to Dana and Shawn for finding that kind of love that’s built to last. I hope you don’t mind, but I snuck a little surprise in at the end.
