Engagement: McGowan, Shaw
June 26, 2012
Lawrence J. and Suzanne D. McGowan, of Stevensville, Mont., announce the engagement of their daughter Natalie Suzanne McGowan to Liam David Shaw — son of William G. A. Shaw and Mary Beth Haggerty-Shaw, of Issaquah.
They will be piped and fiddled into matrimony at a Sept. 15 wedding by Scottish bagpiper Andrew Taylor and Irish violinist Brendon Haggerty. The celebration will take place at the engaged couple’s residence in Horse Canyon outside of Cle Elum.
Officiants will be Natalie McGowan’s uncle Jeffrey Harrison and Liam Shaw’s father William.
McGowan graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Montana State University and is an equine nutrition consultant with CHS Nutrition. Shaw graduated from Central Washington University with a geography degree and is a territory manager at New Zealand-based Gallagher Animal Management Solutions Inc.
The Shaws plan to live in Cle Elum with their growing menagerie of cattle, horses, chickens, dogs and cats.
The couple would like to thank their parents for their love and support and for their respective 29 and 30 years of marriage — great examples to set for a long and happy union.
