Stephany and Matt met at a work event in Los Angeles in 2011 shortly after Stephany moved to the area. However, he was living in Santa Barbara at the time, and their paths wouldn’t cross again until the summer of 2013 when Matt moved to Los Angeles for a job reassignment. They reconnected, and were enthusiastically encouraged to go on their first date by a mutual friend and coworker.
The first date was a success and they both knew that they had found something special in each other. The next several months were spent getting to know each other and going on many exciting trips including Yosemite National Park, Kaui, Washington D.C., Indianapolis and Pittsburgh.
There was an incredibly strong connection between them from the start, and it was during their first extended time apart in December of that year that Stephany was sure she was in love with Matt. She couldn’t stop thinking about him and how different he was from anyone she had ever met. She felt incomplete without him. Little did she know, Matt was feeling the exact same way. When they reunited in Los Angeles after spending Christmas with their families, Matt told Stephany he was in love with her. She said the same back.
The couple went on to enjoy the next year and a half together before Matt proposed. It was such a magical moment–he proposed while taking a helicopter ride above the island of Oahu in Hawaii. It was truly something out of a fairytale.
They went on to enjoy a whirlwind year of wedding planning, job changes and moving cross-country. Only four months before the wedding, they both accepted new job positions in Dallas, Texas, and purchased their first home. They have already proven that they can persevere through difficult life events and still remain each others’ rocks.
They now reside in beautiful Frisco, Texas, and are so incredibly happy to begin a married life full of love, laughter and happiness.
