Melissa and Matthew

Please join us for our wedding celebration on

Our Story

We met in Philadelphia in 2015 living in the same apartment building. Matt was having dinner on a Friday night with a friend on the apartment roof deck with a gorgeous view of the city, and Melissa was trying to enjoy a nice Friday night alone with dinner outside. Matt convinced Melissa to immediately go out for drinks at the whiskey & gogo bar around the corner, and we ended up sharing a few bottles of wine back on the roof deck and talking until almost 6 am.

Since we met almost 4 years ago, we've moved from Philadelphia to Atlanta and then Scottsdale, taken some amazing trips together, tried our best to make our cranky dog Lacey happy, explored Arizona with our boat and airplane, completed way too many home renovations (yelling and all), and watched a lot of Netflix.

Matt proposed on a family trip to Portugal in August 2018, and we're so excited to be getting married in November! We can't wait to have all our friends and family in one place to celebrate!
