After spending seven months in Italy training as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army, William came home to Brittany and they were united in marriage. I have never met a family with so much love for each other than Brittany's. The love that was fostered in her own family shows through in the love she gives to William, her new daughter, Mila, William's family and their friends.
Britt & Will connected on Tinder and unexpectedly fell head over heals for each other. Their connection was immediate and they connected through each other's faith, kindness, positivity, and enthusiasm for all of life's adventures.
At that time, Will was training for Army Ranger School in the U.S. Military. After just two dates with Britt, he shaved his head and left for Fort Benning, Georgia. Despite their strong feelings for each other, Britt and Will were both anxious about the looming long distance and the communication barrier that they would face so soon after meeting. They couldn’t imagine going 3 months without hearing from each other, so they did things old school. They exchanged addresses and made a promise to keep in touch through handwritten letters. Starting off their relationship that way really set the tone for their commitment to making the best of any situation and emphasized how important communication would be to both of them.
The letters forced Britt and Will to really consider what they wanted to share with each other and were thankful for that escape from technology. In the age of social media, the letters helped them avoid distractions from the outside world and to truly focus on each other.
When Will returned from Ranger School, Britt helped him readjust and reintroduced him to the civilian world outside of the military. William introduced Britt to his daughter, Mila, and brought Jesus back to the forefront of her heart. They became inseparable. William proposed in December and confirmed Britt's belief in love at first sight (or swipe)!
Brittany & William are now living together in Italy. Following along and read more of their love story on their joint instagram: United We Stanley!
