Shannon & Peter in Colorado Springs, CO
Peter traveled the world after college, but his high school sweetheart, Shannon always joked that Prague was "their city." She made him promise never to go without her. Six years later they finally planned that trip.
The Bride Shannon Garard, 28, archaeologist
The Groom Peter Mauro, 27, United States Air Force pilot
The Date May 24
After a little time zone confusion the two scrambled to get to the Charles Bridge in time to watch the sunrise. They ran through the streets of Prague in an attempt to get there on time, but Peter convinced Shannon to stop at a nearby park instead. That’s where he pulled out the ring. For the next eight months, they planned their dream wedding at the Air Force Academy Chapel in Colorado, while living in Texas.
