Shannon Cashiola & Richard Nystrom

Richard Nystrom always had a crush on Shannon Cashiola in high school, but she never saw him as more than just a friend until they reconnected in Houston in the fall of 2008. The two moved to Dallas when Richard started graduate school, and he proposed at their home in early 2013. Their wedding on September 28, 2013, at Arlington Hall at Lee Park featured timeless, classic—and sentimental—touches, including Shannon’s grandmother’s fingerless lace gloves, which she wore during the cake-cutting ceremony. The two honeymooned in the Cayman Islands—a destination that Richard kept secret from Shannon until they boarded their flight.
