The first thing I noticed about Matt and Christina was how completely comfortable they were with each other. They’ve known each other a long time – since High School! The second thing I noticed was how fun they were to not only be around, but to watch. I realize that may sound incredibly creepy but the joy they create together is entrancing. Christina can make even the smallest moments fun and the way Matt looks at her and laughs with her is everything. They both have the awkward kind of sense of humour that I love so much and I knew it would be so much fun to document their elopement. I wasn’t wrong.
How did you meet?
Tenth grade history class. We became almost instant friends but neither of us wanted to admit when we had feelings for each other. Funny enough, our first project together was planning a mock wedding skit!
How long have you been together?
Finally, just before senior year I sent him an MSN message (HAHAHA) awkwardly confessing my feelings. Over the span of three days and eleven emails we worked out that we liked each other. Took another couple of days to figure out we’d “date”. That was ten years ago to our wedding day!
Who proposed? How did it happen?
We had talked about it for ages but wanted to get grad school out of the way. So, our first kiss was in the soccer field behind my parent’s house in NB. To propose he took me to a soccer field on Friday the 13th, under a strawberry moon, with a bottle of Nova 7. 😉 We were sitting in the grass and he knelt and popped the question!
What’s your favourite thing about her?
She’s a crazy free spirit, she doesn’t give a hoot about what others think and will whip off her shoes in the rain to dance on the grass! She cares so deeply too, does everything with intense passion.
What’s your favourite thing about him?
He somehow manages to make me laugh to tears at least once a day. He’s always up for an adventure, be it the other side of the continent or to Wendy’s at 2am for fries. He wants to make a difference in the world.
Describe your relationship in three words:
Let’s have fun.
What was your favourite part of your wedding day?
Crying laughing in the car on the way there listening to The Hustle. Oh and wine and chips in bed the rest of the weekend!
What are you looking forward to now that the wedding is over?
Travelling the world together, decorating our new home, trying everything new!
