How We Met

Matt and I met on Coffee Meets Bagel in March of 2022. We quickly connected over our shared admiration for Cheryl Strayed as well as a love for great banter. Our first date was just a few short days after that first conversation in Lambertville, NJ. This is where we discovered that we have the exact same birthday even down to the year!

How They Asked

Matt and I took our first trip to Europe where we spent 4 days in London followed by 5 days in Paris. On our first night in Paris, we went on a walk after dinner to explore the area and get a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower at night. We ended up on the Bir Hakeim bridge which has a gorgeous view of the city. I reached over to give Matt a hug and I felt a box… Then he got down on one knee and proposed! Right after the proposal, the Eiffel Tower’s light show began. It was such a surreal moment and something I will truly never forget.
