A blended family

Shantelle had her son walk her down the aisle: “My dad has passed away, but my son was proud to step in, knowing that his Pop would have approved.”

Both her and Timothy’s children gave speeches at the wedding. It made for one of the most memorable moments of the day to see this blended family officially come together.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Everything was perfect,” Shantelle recalls happily.

The words on their wedding cake summed it up perfectly: “… all because two people fell in love.”
