How Did You Meet?: While there were many opportunities over the course of the past decade for the two of us to meet (including unbeknownst to us at the time many common close friends and both of us attending the wedding of mutual friends), the two of us met at an engagement party for the bride’s younger sister. While playing volleyball, Melissa was confused by the strange bearded man she saw in the dusk across the net from her…”Hey, who are you?” she asked. “Matt.” he replied. “Nice to meet you, I’m Melissa.” All this just serves as another reminder that God’s timing is perfect.
Engagement Story?: The bride and groom were able to pick the setting for the stone along with the bride’s wedding band together nearly three months before the actual proposal date (the actual stone was for the groom and only for the groom to choose). After making it nearly to the date of the proposal, the groom slipped exactly six days early at the restaurant where their first date had occurred. After the six long days commenced, Matt proposed to Melissa next to the river at Hudson Mills with no one else present. A delicious dinner immediately followed the proposal in the park consisting of delicious grilled steak and champagne which were enjoyed with the parents of both the bride and the groom while still in the park. After the proposal, the date for the wedding was set for 1 year to the day after the groom shared the date for the actual proposal.
