Matthew and I met in our eighth grade English class at West Hernando Middle School. We became best friends from 8th-10th grade until Matthew asked me to be his girlfriend in September of 2012. We dated throughout high school, college, and into adulthood. After eight years of dating, Matthew proposed to me on the Pier at Pine Island during the sunset, two days before my 24th birthday. I was absolutely stunned and elated to say yes to being his bride. We are excited to embark on this brand new journey together!
