We found this amazing article on BuzzFeed News and this is Shannon with her fiance, Sean.
Shannon is very close to her grandparents, who lived nearby when she was growing up. She said she remembers seeing a photo of her grandmother in her wedding dress in their home as a child, and dreamed about wearing the gorgeous gown when she was old enough. When it came time for Shannon to get married, she decided she wanted her own dress for her big day, but she wanted to honor her love for her grandma’s dress somehow. So, she asked her grandma if she could have the dress and get it altered to fit her. She said she didn’t have to make too many alterations to the dress’ style.“It’s a pretty classic look, it doesn’t seem super dated,” she said.She added she didn’t tell her grandma what she planned to use the dress for. After some brainstorming, Shannon decided to wear the dress for her engagement photos. The classic gown made for some picture-perfect photos.
