Noelle spotted Daniel, her high school crush, while studying at the University of North Texas’ library. She knew she couldn’t let the perfect moment pass her by, so she jumped at the chance to asked Daniel out to dinner. That evening at Taco Diner, the pair discovered they were not only extremely compatible, they were also neighbors. Noelle and Daniel fell head-over-heels as they began carpooling to campus for class and spending all of their free time together.
Five years later, Noelle received an early Christmas surprise. She and Daniel were dropping off Angel Tree gifts at NorthPark mall and doing a bit of holiday shopping. Knowing that Noelle’s parents ate dinner at Maggiano’s every Friday night; Daniel suggested they all meet for a drink. As Noelle’s father led her up the stairs, she realized that both of their families were there to help Daniel surprise her and be a part of their special moment. The newly engaged duo spent the evening with family before meeting up with friends to continue toasting their happy news.
Noelle and Daniel both graduated from the University of North Texas. Daniel majored in logistics before going on to get his MBA in supply chain management and Noelle studied fashion design. Daniel is now a buyer for Texas Industries and Noelle works for Neiman Marcus’ buying offices. They will tie the knot on December 8th, 2012 at The Orion Ballroom in The Bishop Arts District.
