Shana Harris and Nloh Masango-Dibo’s bond began with a response to a Twitter post and turned into a long-distance relationship full of making memories—including viral Halloween costumes, random photo shoots, and dancing on stage with Keith Sweat.

The duo enjoyed planning their own wedding and created a memorable evening for their 300 guests when they tied the knot on August 17, 2019. The groom’s Cameroonian heritage was included in a traditional West African ceremony the night before the wedding, and the couple wore traditional attire for a “money dance” at their reception, symbolic of merging cultures.

The bride works as a human resources manager, and the groom works a senior assistant director of admissions. The happy couple currently resides in Cincinnati.
