April 3rd was still a chilly spring day, but everything was perfect inside the VFW post on Delaware Avenue in Kenmore. Shawn didn’t seem nervous at all. He’s a cool, calm, and collected kind of guy. He was hanging out with his son Ethan and mostly just waiting for the moment that Cassandra would arrive. They hadn’t seen each other yet, and I could tell that he was excited to finally catch a glimpse of her. It’s hard not seeing the person you love all day! When Cassandra did arrive, she seemed just as calm…even though she forgot her bouquet at home! No worries when you have good friends that will go back and get anything you need. That’s how to make a perfect day…perfect guests. The couple continued to hide from each other as I went around with parents making sure everything was set, music was ready, people were sitting, and if it was time to start yet! Soon enough it was and Casey was walked out by her father to her cool, calm, and collected guy. Until he started saying his vows of course. Then I watched the tears gather in his eyes as they both realized the moment they had been waiting for was upon them. Their little boy Ethan seemed overjoyed at the moment as well. Congratulations Shawn and Casey! I’m so glad to have been a part of your day and that the two of you have everything that is beautiful ahead of you!
