The first time Ashlee & Matt met takes us all the way back to the start of 5th grade at Rice Elementary. Matt recognized Ashlee because he played baseball with her brother, Nick, and Ashlee's dad was actually his coach. They became good friends throughout elementary and middle school. Around the start of high school, their friendship turned into something more. They went on to become high school sweethearts and won class couple during their senior year of high school. They spent their college years together at Penn State before Matt decided to take a job in Charlotte, NC. They made long-distance work for 2 years before Matt moved to Philadelphia in the spring of 2021. They have been happily living together for the past 2 and a half years. In March of 2023, they welcomed home their first fur baby, Buster. He is a black lab mixed with a German short-haired pointer and they adore him.
Matt proposed to Ashlee on January 21st, 2023 at the Stroudsmoor Inn, surrounded by the love of their family members. They have been loving their life as an engaged couple and as Buster's parents. Ashlee is currently finishing her fourth year of medical school and is eager to see where she will end up for her residency in internal medicine. Matt is working as an account manager at Hilti while simultaneously working hard to get his pilots license. They are so excited to start this next chapter of their lives surrounded by all the people they love.
