Just Us! Matthew and Melanie #M&MLOVE!
In comes Matthew, acting silly, making everyone laugh, and there sits Melanie laughing at every joke along with them. She can’t help it…he was handsome, funny and yes, she likes to laugh…A LOT! They met at church in Valencia called “Real Life Church” singing for those weekend services!
First service on Saturday, Matthew noticed Melanie and asked one of the church members about her…”Hey…Um….How old is she?? LOL
After he felt she was an ok age…he proceeded to sweep her off her feet!
The next day they sang for 4 more services together. After the third service, they were both….STARVING! They asked everyone in the room what people were going to do for lunch. No one wanted to go until later so…Matthew asked, “Hey, even though no one else wants to go, you want to still go get some food?” Melanie tried to play it off as if she did not really want to go…you know…don’t give too easy! 😉 “Umm….” she replied…”I guess I can go!”
They went to “Mimi’s” for their first “ALMOST” date and after they were done eating Matthew say’s, “Hey how about I pay for our meal the next time…ON A DATE! He thought he was slick! LOL
But I guess he was….We are excited to announce…Matthew and Melanie will be married May 16th 2015 at 2:30pm. Matthew orchestrated a beautiful and memorable proposal that included a HUGE Christmas box and a re-enactment of the movie ‘Elf’. What was meant to be a great Christmas family reunion (so to speak) on December 25th 2014, turned out to be the beginning of a life long journey with with this couple. The excitement grew from there as Melanie begin to unwrap gift after gift while the boxes became smaller and smaller. Ultimately, leading to the prime piece of the represented promise of marriage. Everyone could tell he put much love, thought, and consideration in each gift right down to the element of proposing in front of Melanie’s family. She was later shocked that he told her he went the traditional route of asking her mother, stepfather, and grandfather for her hand in marriage. The entire experience was beyond exciting and they look forward to spending the rest of their lives together!
