Shannon and John met while cliff jumping….well he was jumping and she was more sunbathing. There’s a spot they used to go in the Scranton area with mutual friends and they happened to be there on the same day. Actually friends were trying to set Shannon up with John’s roommate at the time, but thankfully John swooped in and the rest is history!
Once engaged the hunt for where to have their wedding began. They found Linwood Estate online and absolutely loved it! They picked their September date and started planning. They wanted classic elegance and chose golds, greys and pinks to make their day lovely. And lovely it was! It rained on and off throughout the day, but they still managed to have their ceremony outside under the tent and get a lot of outdoor pictures in between showers.
Shannon’s beautiful gown makes the front of the Estate look even more stunning.
Love the sparkly accent belt.
Linwood has so many great areas inside.
