Stacie and Shane

Stacie and Shane
Spokane, Washington
Dating for almost 9 years, wedding in September 2016

Chapter 1: First Impressions
Stacie: Shane and I worked at a restaurant together for a couple of years before we actually started dating. I always thought he was super cute and had a secret crush on him.

Shane: I thought Stacie was gorgeous and way out of my league.

Chapter 2: Coupledom
Stacie: We ran in the same circle of friends/coworkers so when I turned 24 I invited him out for my birthday.

Shane: I was stoked that she asked me to hang out with her outside of work, even if it was a group setting.

Stacie: A few days later, we went out for coffee and after that just never really stopped hanging out.

Chapter 3: The Proposal
Stacie: Shane and I go to Seattle every year for my birthday. On this particular trip Shane told me that he found a cool park for us to check out.

Shane: We get to this park (where I have an elaborate proposal planned) and it’s completely unromantic. We’re basically tromping through mud and mosquitos are attacking us at every whim. Stacie wanted to leave.

Stacie: In my defense, I had no idea what was going on.

Shane: She actually thwarted my efforts again later that night when I tried to pop the question as we looked out over the Seattle skyline.

Stacie: I didn’t know! It seemed like a sketchy part of town, and I thought we should get out of there.

Shane: Third times a charm. The next morning we went to Pike Place Market, and I asked a random couple to take our picture. When they started snapping, I got down on one knee.

Stacie: I was completely shocked and caught off guard. You think you know someone after that many years of dating and they still manage to surprise you. It was really sweet.

Chapter 4: Ever After
Stacie and Shane: We are both super excited to be getting married and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

  6. Stacie and Shane!! We are so thrilled to be a part of your big event! Excellent location and as for Ifong…. the photos are OUTSTANDING! My two favs are the one on the fire escape steps outside and the one with you two looking out the window at the restaurant – Stacie looking away, Shane looking toward camera. Also the twirling dance pic. As for most “model-worth” pic – Stacie in the felt hat – holy cow girl you look like a super hot model! Handsome youngsters – can’t wait to see you in September!
