Real Bride: Shannon
Updated: Aug 6, 2019
Oh where to start! Someone who is very special to the Kenneth Winston family recently got married, and that is Shannon! She has done some modeling with us, and every time we see her she is just a delight to be with. So when Shannon told us she was getting married we were so beyond thrilled, and then to hear she wanted to wear a Kenneth Winston dress that was even better! Here is a look into her wedding day...
So what work have you done previously with Kenneth Winston?!
"Kenneth Winston is like family! Being a full-time model for the last 6 years, I was looking for a bridal company that not only had gorgeous gowns, but were also genuine people. I love the opportunities I have with modeling, but more than anything, I still wanted that “bridal” experience that I could share with my loved ones. Once I met with Kenneth Winston, I had no doubt in my mind that we would develop a beautiful relationship together! From photo shoots to helping me create the perfect dress for my special day, I could not express how much this company means to me."
What made you want to wear a Kenneth Winston on your wedding day?
I wanted to wear a Kenneth Winston dress for my wedding day because they are SO unique! Being simplistic yet making a statement was my goal look and Kenneth Winston nailed it.
How did you know style 1813 was THE one?!
1813 was the style I gravitated towards from the moment I walked in the changing room. I specifically remember pointing that dress out and Winston said he wanted to save it for last. And of course, he was right! Kenneth Winston knows how to accentuate the female body to make a bride feel classy, yet sexy. Big time goals!
Where, and when was your wedding? What was the overall look/theme you were going for?
Our wedding was May 18 at my in-laws property in southern Oregon. The breathtaking backdrop of greenery and mountains, with subtle touches of flowers were all we really wanted for our big day. We are both very simplistic and wanted the natural beauty to standout. Unfortunately, the weather was a tad chilly for our California family, but the overcast weather made for stunning pictures!
Tell me about your hubby! How did you know he was the one? Tell us about your relationship!
My hubby... where do I begin?! I truly feel like the luckiest lady to have John as my forever partner in this crazy life. Being such an indecisive person, I never truly believed I was capable of having that feeling that everyone talks about.. “you’ll just know.” But it’s true! I knew he was the one because I couldn’t imagine growing old with anyone else. We both wanted to be each other’s forever future and having that desire reciprocated is an indescribable feeling.
We couldn't be happier than Shannon & John found their happily ever after with each other! Cheers to a lifetime of happiness for these two lovebirds!
