They met by chance on a Summer afternoon, then fell in love, and kept pursing one another through years of long-distance— from writing letters while Matt completed West Point (he keeps her first letter in his wallet) to persevering through three deployments. Matt & Hannah’s wedding was a deep sigh of “at last, we’re together.” Their story started in Old Town Alexandria, and so they began their next chapter in Old Town Alexandria, and then celebrated in true Southern fashion.
I never get tired of weddings.
I tear up at almost every first kiss.
I think pretty & styled is nice, but real life is beautiful.
I would rather cook for a friend than buy a meal out.
I care more about having a beautiful soul than a perfect body.
I cherish every lingering morning, and end every night with a kiss.
I believe marriage is one of the greatest earthly gifts anyone can receive.
I believe in telling your story, not my own version of it.
