Dwight and Shannon liken themselves to puzzle pieces that fit perfectly together and form one beautiful,  complete picture. Dwight and Shannon were satellite friends for over 10 years, they met through mutual friends and family and at one point even worked for the same company at different locations but never really took the time to get to know each other. Separately, both of them ended up in Texas at different times and in different cities and eventually both made their homes in Houston, albeit on opposite sides of town, which may as well be like living in different cities with the Houston traffic!

Fate finally brought them together during the summer of 2015. Dwight posted an online invite asking if any of his friends wanted to come have drinks at happy hour and Shannon responded. After a few dates and realizing they had much more in common they became a couple and as they say, the rest is history. Every year they celebrate their ‘Rita-versary’ and how one “yes” can change your life. Dwight proposed on January 17, 2017 and they are looking forward to their June wedding and commemorating happily ever after.
