Though Shelly and Daniel previously eloped to Las Vegas and had just celebrated 10 years together, the first wedding was a disaster with only one photo to show for it so they made a very important decision. “We wanted a redo and to actually dress up nicely and have the wedding we always wished we had in the first place.”

Since New York City is both Shelley and Daniel’s favourite place in the world, it was the obvious choice for the celebration and the world famous Central Park was the perfect ceremony location.

Both wearing French Bulldog socks in tribute to their two pups back home, the pair tells us that they had many pretend arguments over “who’s hair was going to be the longest and most luxurious in the photos” captured by Kristina Childs Photography, a standout vendor for sure.

“We knew our photographer. Tina is amazing at what she does, that was a no brainer and the wedding date was based solely on her availability,” explains Shelley, who wore a head-turning Rue De Seine gown.

“I can’t even begin to explain my love for this dress. It was the first dress I tried on and I couldn’t stop looking at it/touching it. I tried on a few more over the next couple of months but nothing even came close. I stalked my dress online almost every day until I finally went back to the store to buy it.”
