Shannon and Austin both have a deep appreciation for good food and great company. That is, after all, what brought the pair together! In 2015, Austin was working as a Chef at Tony’s when a beautiful blonde he’d never seen before found her way to the kitchen. After working side-by-side for the day, they went their separate ways until a year later when they reconnected at a Houston bar. Austin’s friend struck up a conversation with one of Shannon’s friends, and Shannon recognized Austin but couldn’t pinpoint where from. “He said he was a chef and it all clicked. We saw each other for almost every single day after that and haven’t been apart since!” said Shannon.

Then, on a warm, sunny Sunday in June 2019, the inseparable couple went to church and returned home to take their dog, Fennel, to the park. Austin insisted on wearing his church clothes despite Shannon’s concern that he’d be hot and grumpy. But still, he refused to change, instead dropping down on one knee in their backyard to ask the big question. Actually, he forgot to ask, “but that was perfect because he is a man of few words,” said Shannon. Regardless, she said yes and the couple began their wedding planning journey.  Click here to read the rest of this post »
