Laura likes the city and Shawn likes the country. Despite their different backgrounds, they have a great respect and love for one another. Both of them have been willing to step out of their own comfort zones to make the other person happy. They now live in Northern California where Shawn is an investigator for Cal Fire. However, for their wedding day they chose the quintessential San Francisco venue, Presidio Film Centre.
On Laura’s wedding day, her sisters and mom were right by her side. As Laura’s sisters Julie and Ali described in their toast, when their father passed away when they were school-aged girls, Laura was the one that offered great support. In the years that have passed, they have welcomed their mom’s partner into the family and he walked Laura down the aisle with their mom.
