I actually met Shannon at a wedding (we were both guests of our sweet friend, Rachelle). I was just starting my photography business and Shannon was establishing a non-profit called Alabaster Mobile Clinic, which provides health services to under served regions of Africa and South Asia. At the time, I thought I was struggling with starting a business from scratch. Upon meeting her, I was blown away by her altruism, dedication, and sheer energy to make the world a better place. It certainly put life into perspective.
Fast forward to the start of 2013–in a whirlwind, Shannon had suddenly met the man of dreams, gotten engaged, and was planning her wedding! I couldn’t have been more touched that she had immediately thought of me.
Here we are, 12 days away from her and Ashantha’s wedding. Shannon is a thriving philanthropist, on the verge of marrying her perfect match. In this season of giving and gratitude, I can’t imagine a better couple to finish off a fantastic 2013.
