I love writing our blog posts. To share the love that our couples have with our readers. To show what an inspiration their love and friendship is to the rest of the world. To show how our #cooneycouples are breaking the marriage statistics. Beating the odds. But y’all, I have to apologize, because I already know that no matter what I do, no matter what I say, I will never be able to truly encompass the love, friendship, and example that Breanna and Shay’s love shares.
There truly aren’t enough words.
To say that we love Breanna and Shay is the ultimate understatement. From Breanne’s #bossbabe enthusiasm and Shay’s ability to whole-heartedly love and support her- his strength and patience… y’all… these two are the real deal.
Don’t be fooled by their beauty. Yes, they are both absolutely gorgeous (and yes- we promise we didn’t pay them to model for us- their engagement session was a real one lol!), but to only see their outer beauty would be a complete mistake. Because what really makes Breanna and She so special is their hearts.
Their ability to foster caring relationships with everyone around them.
I guarantee you that if you took Breanna and Shay to an restaurant, they would be equally kind to so CEO as they would be to the bus boy. And not because anyone was watching, but because their hearts truly are the kindest, most compassionate, purest hearts that we have ever met.
We are the lucky ones to have met Breanna and Shay.
We are always so thankful for our #cooneycouples and how they become real life friends, but they friendship and bond that we share with these two is truly one that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. From watching them saying their vows to watching their legacy of love grow, and all that’s to come in the future, we genuinely cannot wait to be right there, by their sides, celebrating all that life has to offer.
For all of the decades to come.
And the irony? We originally had told Breanna and Shay that we were unable to work with them.
Because when they had inquired with us- we already had a wedding in North Carolina the day before their wedding. We just didn’t want to take on a wedding and not give one of our couples the most amazing luxury photography experience that we give to all of our couples. But Breanna was so saddened when we were unavailable, and asked for us to let her know if anything changed.
And then… something kept on pulling us to their inquiry.
Something told us to change our minds, and do it. We somehow knew in our heart that we could power through and still love and serve you two in the most amazing way ever, even despite the crazy schedule.
Breanna and Shay, there just aren’t even enough words to say how thankful we are that you two booked with us, on a short phone call, face unseen. We truly believe that sometimes life has a way of making people come together- that they are destined to be together. We have absolutely no doubt that we were all meant to come together, that you two were not only meant to be a #cooneycouple, but even more, to be two of our lifelong friends. We just love you both so much and wish you the most amazing honeymoon. We can’t wait for all that life has to come for you two, and we can’t wait to watch you two as it all unfolds.
All our love,
Shauna and Jordon
