The Kushiyamas :: Bridget + Shawn

January 28, 2015  |  Southern Fete News

I’ve mentioned it before, but one of my favorite parts of this job is reconnecting with past friends and classmates. Bridget and I danced together at the same studio throughout high school, and when she contacted me to help with her wedding I couldn’t have been more excited – and panicked about pronouncing her future last name.

Bridget and Shawn had such a beautiful (despite the heat) wedding at Rip Van Winkle followed by a reception in the Bayless Center. Guests of all ages danced the night away to Stormy the Band and of course to my favorite, Proud Mary.

One of my favorite parts of their wedding was the live painting. I know I’m partial because BC and I had one at our wedding, but I know how much I enjoy ours and hope that Bridget and Shawn will enjoy theirs just as much.
