Shanta & Monty!

by | Jan 1, 2022 | Real weddings

Happy New Year! We’re thrilled to begin 2022 with the sweet love story of Shanta and Monty. This beautiful couple met during the Memorial Day weekend in 2017.  According to the bride, “Our hearts and souls have been connected ever since.” 

After four years of dating, the groom surprised Shanta by proposing on his birthday in December 2020. Talk about romance! 

“I immediately began planning!  I’ve had quite a few friends purchase gorgeous gowns from Kathryn’s therefore this was the only place I wanted to get my wedding dress. I traveled an hour away from home to get to Kathryn’s. And, after just one appointment I found the dress I would wear on my special day to my forever soulmate,” said Shanta.

Shanta and Monty made sure their wedding was an absolute party of a day at the  amazing DC Estate Winery, in South Beloit, Illinois.  Enjoy following along to see an up close look at their fun and gorgeous day!
