Dina and Matthew
How We Met
My fiancé and I met through his friend who I had been seeing on and off for a couple years. (Lol) I walked into a party and he called “dibs” on me and I laughed and thought that was comical. He also introduced himself to me as John Michael and his name is indeed Matthew. Lol again. All night I thought this kids name was John…. anywho. Things with the friend didn’t end up working out and Matt and I ended up exchanging numbers on tinder. We hung out a couple times and the rest is history ;)
how they asked
Matt and I had looked at rings a few times and I found one that I fell in LOVE with. It was the ring. I kept hinting around to see if he bought it and he shut me down and said: “you love every ring you try on, I didn’t buy it.” I was so sad and disappointed and thought it was never going to happen. About a month later…. we were at his sister’s wedding (I was her maid of honor) and she was getting ready to throw the bouquet, but instead turned around and gave it to me.
She said I asked her “what is happening?” Lol. Clueless as ever, Greatest love story by Lanco started playing. Matt walked up behind me, got down on one knee and popped the question.
His sister (she and her husband Zach are the sweetest) came up with the idea for Matt to propose at her wedding. Such a selfless amazing thing for her to think of. Everyone was cheering and crying. It was so beautiful, and best of all my mom and dad were there to see it. :)
