They say that college group is the place to meet your future spouse, and that's exactly how their story begins. Mariah had been attending Shift College for about a year until Daniel came along, but they wouldn't officially meet until that Summer. It was August 26th, 2016 when Daniel noticed Mariah first (of course) and began to formulate a plan on how he would win her over. His friends tried to explain that she was "off limits" considering the vast amount of suitors longing for her affection. Being the confident and competitive guy that he is, Daniel was determined to get to know her. Mariah announced that she would be leading a Rooted group in September, so Daniel took this opportunity to get close to her.
After a few months in the same group (with little progress) Mariah decided to invite herself to a triple date with Daniel and his friends that November. After a trip to San Francisco, and one very expensive movie, Mariah could no longer deny the feelings she had for Daniel. They made their relationship official on March 12th, 2017. The rest is history.
Daniel proposed to Mariah on March 8th, 2019 under the starry lit sky, and without hesitation, she said yes! They are so excited to write this next part of their story, and to see what God has planned for the rest of their lives.
