Matthew and Erin’s story began in 2012, when they were set up through a mutual friend. Prior to the set up Erin had been eyeing a handsome man at the gym who was mutually exchanging her flirty glances, but they never spoke. Fast forward to the set up, their mutual friend called her out of the blue and asked if she was interested in meeting a new guy. Erin agreed, but only if she saw a picture first….little did she know it was the ‘hot guy’ from the gym!! Erin and Matthew hit it off the day they officially met, which was at a tailgate with his family and several friends.
Erin and Matthew have been together ever since…Erin admires the passion and drive that Matthew has for everything, including his career, family, and their relationship. Likewise, Matthew loves the same things about Erin. During their free time, they enjoy crossfit, hiking, football, shopping, and traveling together. Matthew surprised Erin by proposing to her during a birthday party they were throwing for their friend!
After Erin said yes and the wedding planning began, the priority for their wedding was for their family and friends to feel like they are on a fabulous vacation. Erin and Matthew chose a very modern, chic and relaxing venue: The Henderson Beach Resort in Destin, Florida. The Henderson Beach Resort had the most amazing option for them to incorporate the pristine beaches without having to be directly on the beach. They were able to have a roof top ceremony on the Sunset Vista!
Following the modern greenery trend, they elected to have their reception on the grand lawn. Not only was their wedding classy and chic, Erin and Matthew’s wedding was so much fun, the toasts were hilarious and dancing with the band was exhilarating!
Congratulations on your marriage Erin + Matthew and cheer’s to your future!
