It is our honor to introduce to you Shawn and Emily Siganowich! The couple met through family and had always been close, but as they got older something just clicked. They became inseparable. “He’s my first love and my only, and I couldn’t ask for any better. He truly is my fairytale come true” says the bride.
Shawn proposed to Emily after five years of dating. He surprised her with a couples photo shoot for her birthday. During the shoot the photographer had Shawn stand behind Emily because she wanted ‘a specific couples photo she saw on pinterest’…so Emily went along with it. When the photographer told her to turn around to face Shawn he was on one knee. “It was perfect” Emily said.
Their wedding took place on May 6, 2017 at the stunning Dennis Vineyards. (We’re obsessed with their muscadine wine!!) Emily’s favorite part of their wedding was the ceremony, she loved having their friends and family there to witness her and Shawn tie the knot. She walked down the aisle in a beautiful Stella York gown that had a breathtaking back, which she said “YES” to here at Poffie Girls! The Bride and Groom later shared their first dance to “Never Stop” by Safetysuite.
The Newlyweds escaped from reality to honeymoon in Punta Cana at an all-inclusive resort. “We basically just ate food and laid on the beach. Best. Vacation. Ever.” Emily said. (Definitely our kind of honeymoon!!)
This couples favorite date night consists of ordering takeout or fast food, filling the floor with blankets and pillows, and watching their favorite shows. [Netflix and chill?;)]
Emily’s advice to Bride and Grooms-to-be is: “on the day of your wedding, don’t stress. Whatever happens-happens. Just relax and enjoy your day. Don’t miss a moment, and take everything in. It’s not every day all your loved ones are in the same place at the same time. This will be the happiest day of your life; don’t miss it worrying about the little things. It’ll all be perfect!”
Congratulations to Shawn and Emily!! Thank you for letting us share your beautiful story!
