Lawrence J. and Suzanne D. McGowan of Stevensville, Mont., announce the engagement of their daughter Natalie Suzanne McGowan, to Liam David Shaw, formerly of Fall City, son of William G. A. Shaw and Mary Beth Haggerty-Shaw of Issaquah.

The couple will be piped and fiddled into matrimony at a September 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. Officicants will be McGowan’s uncle Jeffrey Harrison and Shaw’s father William.

McGowan graduated with a bachelor of science degree 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.
