Jenna and Shawn are actually high school sweethearts! They’ve been together since before they were even allowed to “date.” They began as fifteen-year-olds dating in secret but ultimately graduated high school and headed to college together. Then, finally, they were bride and groom on their big day! It’s so amazing to hear about their love story and to have played apart in their amazing Derby Lane Estate wedding!
Jenna and Shawn got married in the chapel of their college campus at the University of Dayton. Following the ceremony, they had their cocktail hour out front of Derby Lane Estate and their reception in back under an elegant tent. The beautiful oranges, pinks, and greens made for a spectacular color pallet for this summer wedding. The crisp white dance floor with the whimsical lanterns were just the icing on the cake!
Derby Lane Estate is a gorgeous French country estate on forty acres of land in Springboro, Ohio. The dreamy stone entry gate, beautiful long driveway, and lush greenery make it a unique Ohio wedding venue. I truly love an elegant tented wedding! Jenna and Shawn didn’t miss a single detail when planning their Derby Lane Estate wedding. This couple paired with this amazing venue is a perfect match!
Jenna was literally the sweetest bride ever, and everyone could just tell how crazy they both are about each other, even after all these years. In fact, the entire day, Jenna kept saying, “I just can’t wait to marry him!” How sweet! The other thing that was so precious was that the families really love each other too because they have grown up together and gotten to know each other for almost ten years. Wishing Jenna, Shawn, and these amazing families a lifetime of happiness! I’m so thankful to have been a part of this gorgeous Derby Lane Estate wedding.
