Rachel and Matt

how we met

Matt and I met on Match.com. At that point I was done dating guys who didn’t want a future. I wanted to take my next relationship slow and with someone who was looking for the same things I was. It only took me 1 day on Match to find my “Match” in Matt. We talked for a couple weeks before deciding to meet for dinner…and the rest is history!

how they asked

Matt proposed while we were on a weekend getaway to Hocking Hills. Which is also where we spent our first Valentines Day. We spent the day hiking a few different trails. On our last trail we rounded a corner and there was a beautiful waterfall. He wanted to take a picture of us in front of it so he set up his phone with the auto timer (which was really recording unknown to me) he came over and we posed for a few seconds before he pulled the ring out of his pocket and got down on one knee. It was the perfect moment, just us out in the middle of the woods. I had picked out my own ring so I knew it was going to happen soon. I had guessed that it was going to happen on this trip but he tricked me the week before by saying the ring wasn’t done yet so it was a complete surprise!!
