On Christmas Eve, Katie was bingeing Nextflix on the couch in the basement, while Matt was getting ready to attend a family party. She got a notification that Matt wanted to extend their match on Bumble, since she had yet to reach out to him. They started talking and two days later, went on their first date at Witch Doctor Brewing Company in Southington.
Shortly before things became “official” in 2020, Matt and Katie went on a weekend getaway to Portland, Maine. In true fashion, Katie fell asleep before Matt could ask her to be his girl so they decided this date would be their “fake anniversary.” Two years later, they celebrated their fake anniversary by brewery hopping in Connecticut. While at Counterweight in Cheshire, Katie told Matt any day she spends with him is a good day. After that, they went to Witch Doctor Brewing Company, where their first date was. After grabbing beers and a table near the dart boards, Matt got down on one knee and said, “You said every day you spend with me is a good one. How about spending the rest of them with me?”
