SHAWN AND ALANA.... A behind the scenes look!!!
Shawn and Alana met roughly three years ago when Alana was 24. She had just had her 4th child, a son, and was so unsure of herself. There was really no thought in her mind though of settling down anytime soon and so she decided one night to get a bunch of ppl together and go out to a local club that had karaoke that night. Karaoke had always been a passion of hers and it was something that cleared her mind and let her say all she needed to about something without actually coming out and saying it.
She arrived at the club @ around 9 and for the next few hours spent her night singing song after song and in the process scanning the room for potential date night deligates. She happened to see a skinny cowboy by the dj booth and decided she would have to find a way to make her move. He didnt appear to be with any other woman nor did he appear the kind of guy that normally tried to date her, but she liked a challenge so she went for it!
About midnight, the song Closer by NINE INCH NAILS came on and she decided that moment was her chance to make her move. As she walked by him on her way to the DJ booth, he was mouthing the words of the song and she looked at him and said "promises promises", and continued on her way to the booth. She didnt stop on her way back and it was a good thing she didnt because that may have been the hook it took to pull this one in. He eventually traded numbers with her and they decided that that next night would be the night they would "hook up".
Thats where it all started. They met up that next night and he ended up staying the night with her. He never left. Now three years later, here they are engaged and planning the wedding of their dreams. Even though they arent rich with $ they have always been rich on love! Its an unorthodox fairy tale but its theirs. An no matter what life has thrown their way they have always stuck it out. Together!
Im starting to think ill never make up my mind about ANY of this!!! lol... HELP!!!!The butterflies on the top left one will be the colors of the wedding!
and the top right one would be cascading calla lillies going from the oasis to the truffle and to a darker
brown at the very bottom! (this will probably be the cake i go with as it is the easiest to transfer color on ... that way its a GREAT cake with minimal effort...lol)
