How We Met

Matt and I met in October 2016 where we both worked. There was an instant connection and we became really close friends for months until he asked me to be his girlfriend in the waiting room at a doctor’s office on 6/29/2017. Attaching a picture from when we first started dating and another from the night of our proposal.

How They Asked

Matt planned a trip for us to visit my family in Southern California for the holidays and scheduled a date night for us on 12/12/2021. We started driving to Mastros in Malibu and he wanted to make a quick stop in Palos Verdes on our way to look at the beautiful sunset by the ocean. He ended up driving in circles for about 10 minutes so I had a feeling something was up. He then told me to close my eyes as he drove us over to the gazebo overlooking the ocean.

He walked me over with my eyes closed and then told me to open then and that’s when I saw him standing in the middle of the gazebo with the sun setting in the background, a flower arch, rose peddles all on the ground, candles, sparklers, and a big “will you marry me?” LED sign hanging up above him. It was the most beautiful sight I’ve ever seen. I walked down the path to the love of my life where he got down on one knee and asked if I would spend the rest of our lives together and marry him. It was truly a fairytale moment.
