Matt and Jennifer met in 2015. Even though they lived 1/4 mile away from each other, and their offices were nearly as close as well, it took an online dating app to bring them together. After a few messages back and forth they met for their first date at Treva in West Hartford, where Jennifer quickly learned that his name was in fact Matt, and not actually Aaron as she had been led to believe (Matt went through an ill-advised phase of insisting on using his middle name for social media profiles). After she got over that little surprise, they quickly connected -- drinks turned into apps, which then turned into what would be the first of many 4+ hour conversations to come. Jennifer was immediately smitten, impressed with Matt's ambition and travels and drawn to his contagious personality. Matt knew right away that he had his work cut out for him to keep up with that fiery little lady. Witty, passionate, and sincere -- he was head over heels. It wasn't until Matt added Jennifer to his Costco membership that people knew it was really serious... Giving her a key to the house came fairly easily, but the Costco membership was a whole other level of commitment. This past Memorial Day weekend, Matt surprised Jennifer with a trip to their favorite spot in Martha's Vineyard. Jennifer thought it was a thank you for all the "flexibility" with the house renovations and was shocked when he proposed over a sunset picnic by their spot at the Harborview Hotel Lighthouse. The moment was so special and perfect. Matt had even organized for Jennifer's brother, Danny, to take photographs of the entire proposal so they'd have those moments captured in time forever. As if the weekend could get any better, Matt secretly coordinated with both of their families to join them for a surprise dinner at L'Etoile in Edgartown the next night. It was such a magical weekend, and being able to share their happiness and celebrate with their families was the perfect way to wind it down. They're so excited to start the next phase of their lives together and can't wait to celebrate with all of you in September!
