Matt and I met on a dating app back in 2017 – Shoutout to The League! Our first date was at The Culver Hotel and was quickly followed by several more fun-filled dates around Los Angeles, including golfing, comedy shows, concerts, and bowling. What can I say, Matt was great at planning dates! We took a brief hiatus from dating and then Matt cleverly worked his way out of the friend zone and back into my heart!
In May 2019, we took a hike into the Malibu mountains. In fact, it was the same hike we had taken back when they first started dating! At the top of the hike, he dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him. He had his cousin hiding in the bushes at the top to take photos, and she surprised us after with champagne. I had no idea it was coming! To be honest, we were headed to Europe a few weeks later, so I thought for sure that he would propose on our trip. He caught me off guard by proposing two weeks earlier!
When it came time to take our engagement photos, I knew I wanted a vineyard backdrop! We both love wine, so it felt like the perfect place to take these photos that we’ll have forever. I also knew I could rely on Page Beauty to make me look and feel my best. They’re the best at making you feel like a better version of yourself without feeling overly made up!
