Tell us about your first meeting.. We initially met online. I (Christina) had just put up a profile after a long time out of the dating scene. Matt was the first person to email me after putting that profile We exchanged a few emails pretty quickly and bonded instantly over common interests in TV, movies, and hobbies. Matt says he knew he wanted to reach out to me after reading my profile and seeing we had those similar interests and says I looked like I was a lot of fun. We have been having fun ever since. Tell us about your First Date… On a Thursday night we met for coffee, and instantly had tons to talk about. If not for prior engagements later that evening, we could have stayed there all night talking about travel, books, TV, movies, and our families. Tell us about your First Kiss… After our coffee date Matt walked me to my car. We made a promise to see each again, and after a hug he gave me a sweet kiss. Tell us about the proposal… We had been on vacation visiting family & friend in Florida. On the last full day of our trip Matt insisted that we get up early to go to the beach to watch the sun come up over the ocean. We were walking along the beach watching ships come in to port and taking selfies, when Matt got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was shocked and immediately said “yes.” I told every person walking by us that we just got engaged. We took some sand a shells from the spot where we got engaged and keep it in a jar at home. Write a short letter to each other My Dear Matt, I can’t find words to describe how excited I am to be your wife. Every day I am grateful for how you love me and allow me the freedom to be myself. Your love has helped me love myself and others more. You are my best friend and one person I can trust fully with my heart. I love you so much and for so many reasons, Christina ; My Dear Christina, As I write this, I think of how much I love you and how much I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. You bring out the best in me and love me for me and encourage me. Our day is coming soon, and I can’t wait for all the adventures to come. You are my dream come true. I love you so much and for so many reasons! Matt

From the Photographer: Christina & Matt are two of the sweetest people and they truly bring out the best in each other. When we asked them what they love about each other, their answers were very similar. Matt: “The thing I love most about Christina is that she is truly my best friend, she encourages me, so much and helps me, supports me, allows me to be myself. She has never judges me for who I am in fact just the opposite she has encouraged me to continue to be who I am, and learn more about myself. I love her sense of family, her passion, her good heart. She is more than I could have ever asked for in a wife, spouse, a friend, the one whom I am supposed to spend the rest of my life with!” Christina: “Matt lets me be me, and he loves me exactly for who I am, and I love him for exactly for who he is. ?We don’t expect anything from each other than our authentic selves. He makes me laugh, he supports me and listens to me. He encourages me in everything I do, and is a great cheerleader. He’s calm when I’m not. He’s happy when I need a pick up. He says yes, no matter how crazy my ideas are! I look forward to marrying the love of my life” They are getting married at the Loveless Cafe Barn in May of 2017, and chose to have their engagement photos their along with the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway.
