Celebration of Love: Matt & Karen

Couple Story: Matt & Karen

Karen and Matt met through mutual friends at a party in NYC in September of 2014. Though the two had grown up just 4 blocks from each other and attended the same elementary, middle, and high school, due to their 3 year age difference they had never met during their childhood. Karen and Matt had hit it off and were two of the last people at a party the two had attended. Matt asked Karen on a date the very next day and the two have been together since.

Their attraction and compatibility was undeniable as the couple discovered each other’s love of adventure, the slopes, the beach, travel, and New York City. After a year and a half of dating, Matt surprised Karen with a proposal on their rooftop in what Karen calls “the most romantic evening Matt has ever planned.” Matt and Karen chose Charleston, a destination for this NYC couple, for their whirlwind wedding weekend; and they had 90 of their closest friends and family make the trip for their 3 day event. Married on New Years Eve, the couple created the perfect way to ring in the new year with joy, laughter, happy tears, drinks, and dancing.
