That look! That look being exchanged between TJ and Chelsea sums it all up. The friendship. The excitement. The adoration. The love these two have for each other is undeniable. And they just exude adorableness!

"To my beautiful bride on our wedding day: Chels, As you are getting ready for the best day of our lives, I ask that you take a moment to relax, and think about how far we have come....I always knew there was something special about you. I was instantly drawn to your bubbly personality and just how damn beautiful you are. As time went on and we started dating, I leaned that there is so much more to you than that. We share the same heart. You are kind, loving, thoughtful, and just a really good person. I can tell you that I will not have a nervous bone in my body today because I am 100% sure that you were meant to be my wife and I was meant to be your husband."

Shannon & Andrew: A Barn Wedding by Bolla Photo

"From this day forward we make a promise:
Whatever happens, we will not walk alone,
We will stand by each other's side, and sleep in each other's arms,
And be the joy in each other's hearts, and your closest confidant.
May you feel deeply loved, for indeed we are.
Through our brightest days and our darkest nights,
I take you into my heart."

Those were the vows Shannon and Andrew exchanged at their absolutely adorable barn wedding just outside of Highland. And as if this barn wasn't cute enough, check out all of Shannon's details <3

Shannon and Andrew did not see each other before the ceremony, but Shannon did a special reveal for her dad...with the bridesmaids and ushers watching from afar.

The ceremony took place in the loft of the barn, which was adorned with sunflowers, candles, and mason jars full of "fireflies."

After being showered in birdseed as they exited the barn, Shannon and Andrew went around to the back of the barn. They both are enthusiastic shooters and decided to shoot some targets together, in lieu of a traditional unity ceremony of lighting a candle or combining sand.
