Clear Cut Couples: Dan and Shannon

Dan and Shannon met during their freshman year at Springfield College. They were next door neighbors in the dorms and bonded over similar music tastes, a love for Boston Sports, and being family oriented. They officially started dating in the summer of 2015!

For their first date, they took a short drive from Springfield MA to Northampton MA to an Italian Restaurant. They walked around the town, found their way to dinner, and finished off the night with donuts for dessert! The rest is history. They have been together since August 1st, 2015!

They have shared countless incredible memories since then - taking trips down to Jamaica and St. John (which was their most recent trip). St. John gave them the best sunset that they have ever seen! They made it through four years of undergrad and Shannon's two additional years of graduate school. They enjoy going to concerts of all genres and love craft beer/brewery hang outs.

Dan proposed on April 3rd 2022! He worked with Shannon's two best friends to distract her and bring her out for an early afternoon coffee date. He was supposed to be at work April 3rd so he took the day off and headed over to Crescent Park in East Providence. He spent quite some time there after grabbing a bottle of prosecco, but after Shannon and her friends wrapped up their coffee they drove over to the park. He was waiting on the stairs leading down to the beach as Shannon and her friends came down. Funny enough, the plan was to be on the beach for the proposal, but high tide had other plans so he stayed up on the stairs.

The proposal went off incredibly, Shannon had no idea it was coming. With the help of her sisters and best friends, they were able to keep everything a secret and successfully surprise her with the ring! Shannon was super excited when she saw her Clear Cut ring, they had talked about ring styles prior so Dan had a great idea of what she wanted. She said she thought it wasn't hers until it finally sunk in that it was official! She absolutely loves her ring!

They got married at the Towers in Narragansett RI in the Fall of 2023! Congratulations to you two! We are SO happy for you!
