casa ybel wedding

Two weeks ago we had the honor of witnessing an amazing wedding on Sanibel Island at Casa Ybel Resort. We felt in love with this couple when they first came to our studio. They had quite a life story to share with us; they were very open, down-to-earth, with a great sense of humor and REAL, in other words, our kind of people! 🙂 Ant and Shawn have a very true, unbelievable love story!! They have lead parallel lives since the age of 16. They NEVER actually met until October 12, 2006. They worked at the same place when they were 17, had the same circle of friends, and actually, in their adult life just before they met, lived 157 steps from each other for a year and a half!! (Yes, Ant counted and paced off the distance!!) They met one day (on October 12th 2006) while they, at the same time, got out of their cars to go to work. Shawn had just taken a job right next to a business that Ant used to own!! They exchanged glances, liked what they saw, talked later on that morning, went out that night, and have been inseparable ever since! This is why, after five years of “courting” each other, it only seemed logical to form the bond of marriage on the day they met!
Their angels waited ever so patiently all their lives to place them together at the right time and create the most incredible love story. A love that only movies are made from. Their relationship is magical and those who know them can truly see their special love they have. Their plans are to share their special love with friends and family, to enjoy this chapter in their lives and grow old together.
We put together a little video of this spectacular day, so hit the play button to view it:
