Shane first saw his future bride, Kate, when he went to his sister’s dance recital in 2014. Shane attended Union Pines, while Kate attended Pinecrest, so he had to reach out on social media to break through the rivalry and date his high school sweetheart.
The couple stayed together through college and eventually bought a house in Pinehurst. That’s when Shane and Kate became members of The Village Chapel. When they had to choose a ceremony location, they didn’t think twice.
On the big day, Kate wore eponymous “Kate” heels from Christian Louboutin and the pearl earrings her mother wore at her own wedding. Together, the newlyweds cruised to their reception at Aberdeen’s Soirée on South in a family classic car, a lavender 1955 Dodge Le Femme.
When the couple’s Punta Cana honeymoon was canceled due to a hurricane, Shane and Kate audibled, choosing to start their marriage with a getaway to Williamsburg, Virginia, and a return trip to the site of the proposal, the Outer Banks.
