Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

At the outset, the Nikah With a Shia is not allowed, a Muslim cannot marry her. (Ahsanul Fataawa Vol.5 Pg.90)

You should first endervour to correct her beliefs and bring her in line with the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama'a teachings and then marry her according to the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah way.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
