Kirstie and Matthew

How We Met

When it comes to love at first sight..I was a nonbeliever. Then I saw Matthew. I had just moved to Florida and I was at a local bar when my friend introduced us. I stared right into his big green eyes and knew it then. He had to be mine. I insisted on staying out later that night so I could get a chance to know him better.. he ended up bringing me home where we talked for hours under the midnight moon. This is where we had our first kiss. From then on our relationship grew stronger everyday. Leading up to this past year, I know everything is exactly how it’s meant to be.

Kirstie's Proposal in Universal Stuidos in Orlando Florida

how they asked

August 4th, 2016, We began our day at Universal Studios in Orlando Florida! This day was just like any other. Long lines, hot weather, and the smell of hot-dogs. I was hyper as always bouncing from ride to ride. We got to the Spider-Man ride, where we had express passes for! We jumped right on the ride and began feeling like a child again. After the ride was finished, we proceeded to walk out. This is when my whole life changed! Spider-Man came up to me with a picture this picture frame it was Matthew holding up a sign saying “Will you marry me?”

I was at a loss for words. Until I turned around and Matthew was already on one knee. The part that melted my heart was… after I said YES he pointed out his brother Andrew filming the WHOLE THING! This is something I will cherish forever!
