Shannon and Colton were riding horses up the mountain behind Rainy Pass Lodge (where the couple had first met), when Colton stopped to reach into his saddle bag. He pulled out a ring, got down on one knee and asked Shannon to be his wife! Their love story would soon take flight with a summertime affair at Merrill Field, surrounded by 250 of their friends and loved ones. “We took a helicopter from the ceremony to the reception at Merrill Field and we dropped right in front of all of our guests! It was spectacular,” Shannon recalls fondly. Bright purple and blue details set the tone for a joyful celebration, while the newlyweds added sweet personalized touches, like custom photo wine bottles, to truly make the day their own. What Shannon will remember most, though, is “how much absolute joy I felt the entire day, getting to marry my best friend!”
