When I heard how Shane proposed to Skyler, I knew I was going to love this couple and that their day would be filled with all the special details that make each wedding so unique. Shane convinced Skyler's little brother to take her to the library for "help" with a school project, and while she was browsing a shelf of books, she found a beautiful book with hanging ribbons and "Skyler & Shane" on the binding. She decided to take a look inside, think was just a coincidence and had NO clue what was about to happen. There were 4 written chapters - each one a poem about different stages of their relationship. The 5th chapter was titled "The Proposal" and on a post-it he drew a map, and wrote, "meet me at the grand hall."  When she got there Shane was there with Skyler's family, he read her Chapter 5, and asked for her hand in marriage. If that proposal does not leave you in tears, I don't know what to say! I'm tearing up just typing it out!

The whole day was beautiful and sweet, just like the couple themselves, with a thought-provoking ceremony completely scripted by Shane. And of course, they included their Pomeranian Finley, which just made my day! This was one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever witnessed, and I hope you enjoy!
