How We Met
“Couldn’t feel more blessed and thankful for all of the well wishes these past few days. Thank you all so much! I got to find out this weekend that the love of my life wants to spend the rest of her life with me and then celebrate that with family and friends, what more could a guy ask for?” – Matt
“Speechless and so in love. On a beautiful day the most amazing man, my better half and the love of my life asked me to spend forever with him. Couldn’t be more excited for this next chapter of our lives together with our loved ones by our side. I love you to the moon and back ?” – Chrissy
how they asked
Matt proposed to Chrissy on a beautiful summer day on August 22nd, 2015, on the Asbury Park Beach Boardwalk.
Both of their families were invited to look on from the nearby historic Convention Hall.
Chrissy’s best friend, who was in on the plan, was asked to bring her to their meeting spot in front of McLoone’s. Matt picked a spot on a bench overlooking the ocean.
As the sun began to set and the nerves began to kick in, a friendly pair of older women sat down on the bench next to him. He told them about his plan and had some small talk until he saw Chrissy arrive!
He brought her back to the bench to talk in private, got down on one knee, pulled out the ring, and asked her to marry him!
After tears, a hug, a kiss, and a “yes!”, their families ran over to toast and celebrate.
Congratulations Matt & Chrissy!
