Daniel & Katie met on the track team at Stevens Institute of Technology in 2014. Despite initial trepidation about each other, due to their pairing of intense personalities, the two found the humanity in one another through a mutual distaste for long bus rides to competitions. After many hours of sharing music selections, movie favorites, & personal stories, Katie & Daniel grew closer. They came to find a satisfying blend of unwavering character & focus toward personal growth in the other, & so began their relationship. Having been together for 5 years, Daniel & Katie have sampled a full complement of life’s highs & lows. They have lived separately in different cities, mourned the loss of close family members, traveled through Europe, adopted cats, & celebrated life milestones. Through all of these experiences their love has matured, deepened, & coalesced. It is with great honor & reverence that they will call each other husband & wife on March 21st, 2020.
with love & gratitude,
Daniel & Katie
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov'd,
I never writ, nor no man ever lov'd.
Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare
