Polina and Matt

how we met

We met through friends during college years. I was living in Richmond and Matt was in Northern Virginia. While headed to a family beach trip, Matt took a pitstop in Richmond and took me out to a local, Mexican restaurant, Don’t Look Back, and we haven’t since then!

how they asked

We booked a California trip in June to visit friends and family in August 2018. I had no idea what was actually going to happen during our trip to the West Coast. On the cliffs of Glider’s Point in San Diego, Matt proposed! Matt said he had the ring in his pocket the whole trip and was nervous that TSA was going to flag him down and expose the ring before getting to California! We had just moved into our first apartment together, so he did a really good job hiding it – and my girlfriends keeping it on the down-low when they knew months in advance!
