Kristin and Matthew

how we met

Matt and Kristin met on the dance floor at a mutual friend’s wedding. Both of them were dancing solo to the band until they bumped into each other. Once they met, they danced together for the rest of the night. At the end of the night, Matt gave Kristin his business card earning him the nickname ‘Business Card Matt’ amongst her friends!

how they asked

Matt proposed to Kristin at her favorite spot in Chicago, the city they call home. He had planned a picnic at Fullerton Beach Park and after eating lunch, Matt asked Kristin to stand up for a photo. The wind blew her hair in her in her face, so she turned to brush her hair back. When she turned back around, Matt was on one knee. It was such a beautiful surprise! The crowd around us started to clap, and a few moments later, they started to laugh! We looked around in shock only to see that another couple got engaged about 20 feet away and only 20 seconds later!
