Shannon & Trace’s Classic Country Club Wedding

Shannon and Trace’s wedding formed within the stunning country club of Royal Fox in St. Charles. The quaint town became a cherished spot of remembrance as the couple's first gathering within a forest preserve. They kindled their awe-struck love through a shared college life in panoramic Colorado before finally bringing their romance full-circle.



Trace’s mother reminisced on the youthful romance of these high school sweethearts, when Trace serenaded Shannon with her favorite music before sneaking in their first kiss. Their story

offered a picturesque glance of a single meeting unfolding into a fierce bond. Despite the pair’s travels through different states of the country and of life, they always stood side by side.


The rustic charm of the St. Charles venue seeped through the cherrywood bookshelves, round linen tables, and a grand piano adorned with a timeline of portraits, basking in warm light

through the French windows. We panned across the lush fields and surrounding pine, decorated with daisy and peach rose bouquets, forming a refreshing spring ceremony.


This earthy and erudite theme flowed throughout Shannon and Trace’s cinematic story. Trace

shared the pair’s intimate walk through a private California beach leading to the big proposal. Resting near the shoreline, he hid a romantic poem tucked within a glass bottle before he dropped to his knee.



While Shannon and Trace stood back to back, hands interlocked, we captured the lover’s wonder as they unveiled their “first looks.” Shannon modeled a stunning sweetheart gown with crystal drop earrings framing her beach blonde locks, a contrast to Trace’s classic black tux and bow tie.


A soft breeze billowed through the courtyard as the two echoed their vows, tender emotions slipping through their cracking voices. We chronicled the intimate moment of Shannon gazing up

at Trace lovingly and slipping on one another’s rings. Laughter filled the air as the couple sealed their union with an eager kiss, not a second short of the minister completing the vows!


There’s no wedding without some tears shed by family as they witness the growth of their loved ones. Shannon’s sister stifled her teary emotions during her speech before pulling Trace and Shannon into a hug as a wholehearted welcome. Tears also flowed from Shannon’s mother as she

fervently expressed her happiness that her daughter found her perfect match, as it can be as rare as stumbling across a bottled message.


Sitting together on the leather loveseat, Trace’s father offered some words of advice: “Just keep having fun your whole life and smell the roses.” The lush green field stretched between the couple, their eyes not leaving the other as they dipped into a kiss, marking their new chapter.
