Matt and Sarah were setup on a blind date by mutual friends. Its true folks…blind dates do work! Matt is in the Navy and has been on two deployments during their two year relationship. Because of this they have spent most of their relationship over e-mails, letters, phone calls and text messages. In fact he will be leaving again just weeks after the wedding for another 8 month deployment. It just goes to show that love will find a way, and if you’re meant to be together then nothing will stop you.
So how did he pop the question? Matt enlisted the help of Sarah’s mother and best friends to perform recon operations on the type of ring she wanted. Like a true gentleman Matt asked Sarah’s parents for permission prior to the proposal forcing them to keep this a secret for 6 weeks. Excruciating! On the day of Sarah’s graduation from UCSB, Matt decided to surprise her while she was taking post graduation photos with her parents. To say the least, she was caught off guard. Suddenly, her Masters degree went from being the happiest moment of her life to an easily discarded piece of paper on the lawn. Now she has a new happiest moment!
Sarah & Matt–we have adored working with you and can’t wait to be a part of your wedding. We know it will be amazing!
