Shannon and Dan Wedding | Pawleys Plantation

Both Shannon and Dan come from families  steeped in public service. As a nurse and firefighter, they give so much to make their community a healthier and safe place. These 2 really have hearts of gold! Their wedding day was such a beautiful reflection of love.
It’s not everyday that parents set up their adult kids on a blind date and it ends in happily ever after! Well, that’s exactly how Shannon & Dan’s story started…
During the St. Patrick’s Day holiday, Shannon & Dan’s paths crossed thanks to their Dads. This incredibly sweet couple immediately clicked from the moment they met. The conversation flowed so naturally and blossomed into true love.
With a romantic and simple wedding style, Shannon & Dan exchanged wedding vows at Pawleys Plantation. It was important to the bride and groom that guests felt welcomed and had a wonderful time during their wedding… and they definitely achieved that! Guests had a ball celebrating the new Mr. & Mrs. Their rustic style was highlighted with plum, ivory and pops of gold, and candle light {so pretty!!!}. Lucy, the Flower Girl and Groom’s niece, was so cute…. she {almost} stole the show:)
The reception was such a unique experience with pipes and drums!
From the bride:
Our fathers are retired NYPD who moved down to the area after they retired. The New York Shields Pipes and Drum Band is comprised of all NYPD police officers. Since so many have retired and moved down here to Pawleys Island/ Myrtle Beach they have started The Coastal Carolina Shields Pipes and Drum Band (blue shirts at the wedding). They are all retired or active first responders. Every year they play the North Myrtle Beach St. Patrick’s  Day Parade, as well as Hilton Head’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. They play at weddings and First Responder Funerals when requested.
We know how lucky we are, and that we are blessed to have this life and we don’t want to take anything for granted. Things might not always be perfect in life but they could always be worse, we have each other to lean on and I couldn’t imagine going through all of the ups and downs in life with anyone else but him.
