Matt and I met at a Diabetes Friendly Foundation charity event through a mutual friend in November 2011. I knew there was something special about him the minute we met. We hit it off immediately and have been inseparable ever since.
How We Got Engaged
We got engaged on April 21, 2013 in Marco Island, FL. Matt and I planned a trip to see my Grandmother in Fort Myers and Matt suggested we spend a night away just the two of us. So we decided to go to Marco Island, which was about an hour drive from my Grandmother's. After we checked into the hotel, we put our swimsuits on and headed down to the ocean. We decided to take a stroll along the beach and out of nowhere, Matt got down on one knee. I was so surprised and, of course, said yes and the rest is history!
What Part of the Wedding Are You Most Excited About?
We are most excited about having our wedding at Arista Winery. Their property is just gorgeous and couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. Our first vacation together was a trip out to the wine country so it has become a special place for us. We also look forward to celebrating this day with our closest family and friends. And of course, we are excited about drinking great wine!
