Matt and I are from NYC; he's an architectural designer and I'm a graphic designer. We love eating and cooking together, and recently purchased our first apartment! We are so excited to make more memories in our new home!
Matt and I met in college at a party, and Matt approached me telling me I was brave for wearing white shoes to a frat party. We wouldn't be here right now if my roommate didn't drag me out that night so it's thanks to her that we met! One of our first dates was at the school cafeteria because we were broke college kids. And now we're broke adults!
Matt had been carrying a ring around for over 4 months and proposed on the last day we were in Copenhagen. We were at a dessert bar and he asked the waitress to hide the ring in my pastry, but they almost brought my dessert to the wrong couple! He told me that this place specifically puts gold in their desserts and when I found the ring, I thought it was part of the tart until he got down on one knee. Good thing I didn't eat it! I was surprised to hear that all our family members already knew except me. He nailed it!
We planned this trip just for leisure and our lovely photographer just so happened to have time to meet us in Joshua Tree for a quick engagement session. It was so nice to have such a different landscape in these shots.
