Weddings are a great place to reconnect with old friends, and so are wedding showers. Shan Tanney and Pierson Davis were reunited at their best friends’ wedding shower. Everyone could tell the two belonged with each other, and so could Pierson! After starting their relationship in two different cities and trying to make long-distance work, Shan moved to Nashville to be with Pierson, and shortly after, he proposed.
After eating out and visiting with friends one night, Shan and Pierson came home to a lit house. Shan walked down the hallway and saw coral balloons everywhere. When she looked at Pierson, he said, “There are 101 balloons and each of them has a reason why I love you tied to the end.” There was one white balloon mixed in all of the coral and the white balloon had a ring attached to it. Pierson got down on one knee and asked Shan to marry him.
Shan had dreamt of her wedding day since she was a little girl and knew exactly what she wanted. She picked out the perfect fabrics and designed her wedding dress with Nashville based designer, Olia Zavozina. The ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The gorgeous summer wedding was outdoors with an oversized running fountain and blooming summer roses creating a stunning, romantic ambiance.
The wedding was everything Shan had dreamed it would be, and so was the man standing next to her at the altar. “It was so exciting to look out and see everyone arriving for the day I always dreamed of. I had to pinch myself to make sure it wasn’t a dream,” Shan said. The day flew by and ended with a white horse and carriage ride under the beautiful Nashville sky.
