How We Met

Matt and I were both in the same business frat at Penn State. It felt like we always just missed one another in college and we didn’t meet until the year after I graduated. He DMed me and decided to buy plane tickets to Nashville a few weeks later. We’ve been dating ever since. Thankfully we aren’t doing long distance anymore and both live in Virginia!

How They Asked

Matt and I had a vacation planned with my family at Holden Beach, NC. Matt told me he really wanted to take me out to dinner and it had to be oceanfront. The beach is my favorite place in the world! He picked out a nice place and made reservations for Monday. He told me what to wear and kept saying he can’t wait to take great pictures. Matt even shaved his quarantine beard! I knew something might be up.

We had the best dinner and he told me we should drive to go check out the lighthouse on Oak Island. We had a bottle of wine picked out from our first date and packed a blanket. We made the walk down the wooden path to the beach and it was so beautiful I couldn’t get over it. Before sitting down he grabbed my hands and pulled me away from the blanket.He went on to tell me that flying to meet me in Nashville 2 years ago was the second best decision of his life… then got down on one knee.
