Laura & Shawn June 19, 2010

Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Our Story

Shawn and I went to high school about 25 minutes away from each other and happened to be rival schools. I had seen Shawn a lot throughout high school and thought he was one of the cutest guys, but never pursued anything because of our schools' rivalry. One of my best friends' friends was dating Shawn during the summer I was going into my sophomore year in college and they had just broken up. Since his name had come to mind again and we were both out of high school, I added him to facebook to check out what he'd been up to the past couple years. Next thing I knew, Shawn wrote me a message on facebook asking if we'd ever met before and ever since then, we'd been talking and even began dating, and our now engaged to be MARRIED!!!

Our Interests and Goals

We both really enjoy the outdoors -- fourwheeling, boating, snowmobiling, and hunting! Our favorite R & R trips are in the Black Hills where everything is peaceful and we can enjoy being in a quiet place to take walks and do activities where we can get to know each other even better!
