Loveless Summer Wedding - Shannon & Mike

 www.erinleeallender.com

Oh Shannon and Mike! These two are just too adorable for words. They are also part of my Vanderbilt Residency Squad (we have a squad now guys) and I just love all of them. Their wedding was beautiful. So much laughing, so many tears, and an ice cream bar. Although they met years before at a college they were both considering, their relationship didn’t begin until they were both internal medicine residents at Vanderbilt. Because of this, we did their portraits on the campus of Vanderbilt University. See their super cute story below!

“We actually met in 2010 at Duke Medical School's second look weekend (which is when they invite accepted students back to visit the school as they try to convince us to come there). There were probably a few hundred people there, but we met and talked about how we liked to hike and kayak (and how we both liked Vanderbilt haha). Then, all of us boarded a bus to spend the afternoon at the Raleigh History Museum. About an hour or two in, Mike turned to a large group of us asking if anyone else wanted to explore the town since he had already seen the entire museum. Everyone said no, except me! We walked around the town and went to a coffee shop together. It wasn't anything particularly romantic at the time. We then went to separate medical schools... until we both matched at Vanderbilt for internal medicine residency! We definitely remembered each other. We were friends for a little over a year before we started dating. The rest is history!”
