Brittany and Matt met me in Roswell for their engagement session last fall while the leaves were still pretty shades of yellow and orange and I loved getting to know them and hear their story. Matt is a youth minister and Brittany works for an adoption agency towns apart. These two have the kindest hearts that are full of love and I can't wait to be there to see them say "I do."
How did you two meet?
Matt and I were introduced by two of our friends who are also in our wedding party, Kyle and Haley. I have been good friends with Haley for many years and was in the same youth group as Kyle and Haley when we were in high school. Kyle works with Matt at Royal Cup Coffee. Kyle and Haley started telling us about each other and eventually got us in contact with each other. We talked on the phone for a week before we met, which was great to really get to know each other and ask all the important questions. Matt drove almost two hours to pick me up for our first date to take me to Atlanta for dinner and a Braves game.
How did he propose?
Our 6 month anniversary of dating was October 14, 2016, and Matt took me to a nice dinner on the square in Carrollton to celebrate on October 15, 2016. We then went to the Greenbelt to "look at stars" on the dock. As we walked down the trail to the dock, he stopped me under the gazebo which was decorated for the proposal and asked me to marry him (in Portuguese- which was a sweet surprise since he knows my love for Brazil).

Caring, giving, patient
What are you looking forward to most about being married?
I am most excited about having someone by my side to glorify the Lord with and seek Him with. I am excited to see where the Lord takes us in our lives together. I also cannot wait to live in the same city-same home- as Matt and get to spend every day together.
