Matthew & Jenica initially met each other at a spelling bee in their home county during elementary school. Being one of the only boys able to out-spell Jenica, she developed a pretty immediate crush on Matthew. They continued to see each other frequently at their brothers' sporting events, and they maintained a friendship throughout the years. They officially started dating in 2016, and their first date was a 10K race in Texas. One of their favorite hobbies together is traveling, especially seeing the U.S. National Parks. In December 2020, they took a trip to Utah and Arizona. It was at Bryce Canyon National Park at the bottom of a hike into the canyon that Matthew got down on one knee (in the snow!) and proposed an even bigger adventure. They are excited to embark on this new endeavor in October with their closest friends and family!
