OUR STORY

WE'RE GETTING MARRIED (:

In 2008 without formally meeting Shawn, Bianca declared that she would marry him.

Thirteen years later, he proposed and she said yes! It would appear that Shawn and Bianca were meant to be. The couple grew up four blocks away from one another and attended Lincoln University at different times, but did not meet until they were formally introduced by mutual friends, Michael Gary and Dathan Freeman.

...and the rest is history.
