Emily and Matt


How We Met

Matt and I were set up by our mutual best friends! Although we went to the same university, our paths didn’t cross until later in life when our good friends decided we might just be the perfect match for each other. After a few text exchanges we decided to meet for dinner and the rest was… well you know

how they asked

My good friend is a professional photographer and is always encouraging me to be her ‘subject’ for fun, styled shoots. She was getting ready for the holiday season and mentioned she needed a few couples to take styled Fall photos for her upcoming promotions.

Little did I know, Matt orchestrated this entire shoot! Although Matt shared his intentions with our parents and siblings, he left my twin sister, Lauren, out of the loop. He wanted her to be just as surprised!


Soon enough, myself, Matt, my twin, and her husband were all scheduled for a Fall photo shoot!

After starting off at a pumpkin patch downtown, we headed the beautiful courtyard at the Southern Hotel in Covington, La. It was there where Matt dropped to one knee and I dropped to both, quickly after (totally shocked!).






As our parents and siblings were watching from a room above, my twin sister was by my side, as excited and surprised as me!



We popped champagne and celebrated at a local restaurant!


Matt thought of every detail and made the day more special than I could’ve ever dreamt!


Special Thanks
