There are certain weddings that stick out as unique for one reason or another. Maybe it was the spectacular decor, the incredible venue, something crazy that happened. But other times weddings stick out because of the love and relationships of the people in them. Ben and Shelly’s is one of these.

Ben and Shelly are a wonderful couple and part of two very loving, caring families. Ben has two beautiful children that Shelly loves dearly, and they are a sweet family! Their wedding day was not traditional in the sense that they didn’t do all the “typical” things – wedding party, lots of dancing, etc. But it was deeply traditional in the sense of purpose, intentionality and love that was displayed. I (Shannon) am so glad I was able to be there (along with our amazing Hannah shooting with me) at Barnett on Washington to capture this beautiful start of a new family and the celebration of a love that is only going to deepen as the years go on.

Congratulations Ben & Shelly – you two deserve only the best!!
