Our Story

Matt and Justine's story began in the summer of 2013 at SWIC in Belleville. On the second day of class, Justine took full advantage of the fact that both of her study partners and Matt's study partners from the first day of class were absent. It should be noted that on the first day of class, Justine had noticed that her and Matt had three of the same classes together and she wanted to make it a point to talk to him. The professor requested that everyone partner up, so she asked Matt to be her partner. They went to lunch later that afternoon and had their first "official" date that Saturday at The Cheesecake Factory.

Fast forward to August 2016. Matt and Justine had gone on their annual vacation to Cocoa Beach, FL. That Tuesday, they had spent the day relaxing at the beach and had plans to take their typical beach pictures that evening. As they were taking pictures, Justine was told to turn around and help Matt get situated for the picture. When she turned around, he was on one knee and asked her to marry him. SHE SAID YES!

They had set the date for October 14, 2017, but decided to surprise a few people and become one as husband and wife on April 7, 2017.

Now, it's time to celebrate their marriage with everyone!
