Shanna and Daniel met during Christmas 2015. Daniel and Shanna’s brother Nicholas were randomly assigned as roommates in college, and Daniel visited their home for Christmas. He says he fell in love when he woke up early to read and have coffee and Shanna already beat him to it on the couch doing the same. He told Nicholas he’s next on the list to date her. Two years later they started dating. Through study abroad, 2 years away from each other in college, and almost 3 years long-distance in the work-world, Shanna and Daniel sealed the deal. They’re so happy to begin their life in the Army together and for the adventures to come. Their wedding was a melding of worlds between growing up in two different countries, and family and friends from three countries and across the U.S. One of the highlights was spending the month before the wedding with their small-town dance teacher Ms. Smith, from “Dance Centre International”, learning the Viennese Waltz to John Denver’s Annie’s Song and surprising their parents.
