Shelley & Sanner in Santa Rosa Beach, FL
Shelley was sure she had met the man she was going to marry at a concert. One month later, the guy from that show, Sanner, told Shelley he loved her. Over the next several months, the two drove five hours each way to visit each other at their colleges.
The Bride Shelley Parker, 22, new business development specialist
The Groom Sanner Holmes, 25, document solutions specialist
The Date May 17
One weekend, Shelley’s friend’s dad, a jeweler, invited her to borrow an item to wear to her friend’s wedding. Shelley and Sanner headed over to his store. There, Shelley spotted a gorgeous engagement ring and showed it to Sanner, not expecting his next move: He was down on one knee, proposing. (Oh, and he bought her that ring!)
