If you've made it here, it means you are extremely important to us.
As you know, both of us have lived in quite a few places, and met quite a few people along the way. You are among our favorite.
We feel blessed to have you in our lives individually, and are extremely excited to combine our worlds together through marriage.
We cannot wait to have all of our favorite people from near and far in the same space.
Hopefully its obvious we’re crazy about each other.
One of our favorite things to say to one another is ‘I’m obsessed with you.’ And we truly mean it.
We feel so blessed, lucky, and thankful to have found each other.
These past few years have been a crazy adventure, and we’re so excited that it is just the beginning…
I caught myself at church today gawking at Matt from a distance.He was standing a few yards away, and I thought to myself “holy s$*t.If I didn’t know him, I definitely would want to.”And then I grinned to myself as I thought not only do I know him, I get to spend the rest of my life knowing him.
I think one of the greatest things about Matt is being known BY Matt.He has a way of making you feel so seen, so understood, and so safe.And I felt that way from [before] the day I met him.
Matt and I met on a dating app, at a time in my life that love seemed like a very slim possibility.But the moment we “matched” I knew that was it.HE was it. There was a familarity talking to him, but a deep curiousity for more.I knew I had met my best friend.
If you know me, you know I am a sucker for adventure. Falling in love with Matt (more and more each day) has been the greatest adventure of my entire life.I always prayed I would find a person that shares the same sense of adventure, that dreams big, and that loves deeply.Matt is all of that and so much more.
He says yes to new opportunities.He welcomes growth. He handles challenges with grace and kindness. He finds joy in making others happy.He is passionate. He is fiercely dedicated. He’s funny. And he’s an incredible cook.(To name a few).
I cannot wait for a lifetime of knowing him. Of loving him. And of being known and loved by him.
I really am the luckiest.
IT WAS LOVE
AT FIRST SIGHT
It's easy to see us sharing the rest of our lives together...
Finding "the one" is not easy. Looking for "the one" is even less easy when you're in a new city with only a few months left of your 20s. While I was extremely skeptical, there WAS an app for that.
That first day messaging Courtnee felt different. Like I had known her forever and she understood me like no one else had. Instead of connecting on surface level interests, we immediately connected with our morals, our motivations, dispositions, and goals. I met her while loading up boxes for yet another move. The simple fact that we connected during the one and only week where our dating radiuses overlapped show me that this was always part of the plan
Courtnee is incredibly talented, driven, and creative. She's kind, stubborn, and authentic to herself. She has a heart for Jesus. She is happiest when she is hosting, giving, or doing anything that makes others happy. And as if that wasn't enough, hubba hubba wubba wowza she's BEAUTIFUL.That selfless, kind, consistency is everything I could have prayed for in a wife.
It's easy being her best friend. It's easy to fall deeper in love with her every day. And it's easy to see us sharing the rest of our lives together.

Wedding traditions mean different things to different people. For us, the most important part of a wedding is being in the same space with all of our favorite people.
We recognize that people are traveling near and far to share this day with us, andwe want to be able to be able to celebrate with you.
For that reason, the format of our wedding will be slightly non-traditional.We are having an intimate ceremony separately, so that our entire evening together is dedicated to celebrating.Being present is our top priority.
(LOTS) OF FOOD
GAMES & ACTIVITIES
MUSIC & DANCING
Show up wearing your best party outfit.We don't want to be the reason you have to pull out the suit you dread wearing or that dress that has been collecting dust in your closet for the last year. Think: New Years Eve party, not the Kentucky Derby.
Pants should be comfortable enough to get low. Tops should be bold.We want sequins, patterns, prints, and lots of fun.And shoes better be your best dancing shoes (if you can do that in heels, great.If not, ditch them for some tennis shoes instead).
For those of you traveling in, (or those of you who are local and want an excuse for a fun staycation), we have secured a block of rooms, conveniently located near the venue and our home.A shuttle will be available to take guests to/from the hotel.
