Emily & Matthew’s wedding | Huracan Cafe in Punta Cana
Matt and Emilie met on an online dating site in the summer of 2010. He stood out to her because he asked about her studies at university and her life as a cheerleader. They had similar interests including “taking long walks on the beach” and “watching sunsets” Emily thought “there’s something different about this one”.
A week after sending messages and texts back and forth they decided to meet in person and they immediately hit it off. Emily brought her 3lb poodle Tiffany with her and they got along well so she knew it was a good sign.
A couple days later they met for ice cream and went for a walk on the beach – they first real date. Matt made her laugh with his cheesy jokes and sparked her interest when he told her about his love of traveling. They started dating in September 2010 while up at his family cottage for the long weekend and have been inseparable ever since.
Some of their favorite things to do are: watching movies, dining out, throwing parties, and they love the outdoors (camping, ATVs, going to the cottage and traveling).
Matt proposed to Emily on Christmas Eve 2013 on her front porch before church. The doorbell rang, Emily went downstairs and greeted her boyfriend. She invited him inside but he just stood there, smiled at her and asked, “will you marry me?”
The rest is history… and it has led to some amazing wedding photos here in Punta Cana.
