Today’s fabulous featured engagement comes from Meegan Weaver Photography, a Texas based wedding photographer. Meegan has been so sweet and accommodating to GSS and we have truly enjoyed working with her on this feature.
Jennifer and Shane are to be married on October 29, 2010. Jennifer was kind enough to answer a few questions for us:
How did you and Shane meet? Shane and I met through mutual friends shortly after I moved to Dallas. We we’re friends for 9 months before I asked him to be my date to a friends wedding. We’ve been dating ever since.
How long did you date before the proposal OR How long have you been together? We’ve been together for almost 3 years!
Have you set a date yet? We’re getting married October 29, 2010.
Have you picked your venue? If so, what made you choose this location? We’re getting married at The Filter Building on White Rock Lake. We wanted to be able to have the ceremony outside and what better place than right on a lake! We also fell in love with the industrial, 1920’s building with all of its character and unique history.
At what point did you know that Shane was “the one”? I knew immediately that Shane was unlike any other guy I had dated. It was easy for me to envision spending the rest of my life with him.
Besides getting engaged, what is your favorite memory as a couple? We have a lot of good memories, so its hard to just choose one, but one of my favorite memories was when we flew out to Washington for Shane to meet my parents for the first time. I was a little nervous because Shane was the first guy that I brought home to seriously meet my parents, but it couldn’t have gone any better. They immediately fell in love with Shane and made him feel like he was part of the family. Needless to say he got their stamp of approval.
How did Shane propose? We were in Santa Fe for my birthday and for my cousin’s wedding. We had gone on a hike together and we were enjoying the perfect Santa Fe weather. When we had reached the top of the mountain I was ready to continue on our hike, but Shane had wanted to take a minute longer to take in the view. I noticed he was acting a little weird but I couldn’t quite figure out why until he told me that he had a question for me….He then got down on one knee and proposed.
Were you surprised? I was very surprised. I always thought that when that moment came I would have a sense it was coming, but with so much going on with my birthday and cousin’s wedding I guess Shane caught me at a time when I was least expecting it. It really couldn’t have been more perfect.
What made you choose Meegan as your photographer? I had seen a lot of Meegan‘s work on her website and facebook and immediately loved her style. We both wanted a photographer who would do more than just document our big day. We wanted someone who would artistically tell our story through images.
Thank you so much, Meegan, for sharing this amazing engagement session with us! Please stop by her website and blog and show her some love! And thank you, Jennifer, for taking your time to answer our questions! We hope your wedding is everything that you have ever dreamed of and wish you and Shane a lifetime full of love, laughter, and happiness!!! May every day be better than the last!
