Dena+Shawn | The Medical Couple

Meet Dena & Shawn

We loved being able to take their engagement pictures at their college, where they first saw each other. Dena & Shawn met during their orientation week at medical school 4 years ago.

What did you first notice about each other?
We were studying for our first medical school exam and I realized how smart Shawn was!
Shawn says it was something about Dena’s eyes that had him glued, but either way, we would end up talking for hours and became inseparable almost immediately.


What was your most memorable date?
After 8 months of dating, Shawn came with me to my cousin’s wedding in Singapore. Shawn had the opportunity to meet my grandparents and most of my extended family from India. We not only had an amazing week in Asia but I saw how well Shawn fit into my family and knew I had found someone perfect for me.


The Big Question:
Shawn took me on a romantic dinner cruise to enjoy our last weekend in New Orleans before heading back to Tennessee for core rotations. As the riverboat pulled away and the sun set on the horizon, Shawn got down on one knee and pulled out a ring! After unfreezing, Dena said “Oh, um yeah”, and looked up in shock to see both of their families cheering on the upper deck! Besides being a total surprise, an added touch was the intimate family engagement party with dinner and live jazz Shawn planned inside the ship. It was an unforgettable night!

They are having their big day at the beautiful Opryland Hotel, which is a Nashville must see location. We are very excited to be working with Courtney Hammons & her dream team (A Magical Affair) on the day of the wedding. We know this will be an romantic unforgettable wedding!


Congratulations to Dena & Shawn!
