This summer Iowa wedding at Little Lights on the Lane in West Branch, IA was absolutely gorgeous. Like so many weddings of 2021, covid got in the way of their original date in 2020 when they were both stationed in Germany and unable to get back to the US. BUT the backup plan of the 4th of July turned into the perfect day to celebrate this military couple, who met at West Point Academy.
Shane and Olivia are both officers in the US Army and were stationed together in Germany for three years. One day, they visited a German Christmas Market inside a medieval castle. Outside of the castle, Shane proposed and of course, Olivia said yes! I don’t know if a proposal story gets much dreamier than that. The two of them balance each other so well. Being stationed in different cities, I’m so happy they will have each other as an anchor throughout their military careers. Best wishes for many years of support and love!
