Like so many couples’ stories these days, Julie and Matt found love after they “swiped right”. What makes this online dating success story unique is that Julie and Matt got it right on the first try. That’s right, folks. He was her / she was his very first Tinder date!
“It was honestly after the first date I knew he was someone special,” Julie tells us.
Fast forward a few years. When it came time to propose, Matt planned the sweetest surprise for Julie. He invited her to dinner with some of his coworkers. That night, their dinner mates were running late so Matt invited Julie to walk around Washington Park to pass the time. Unbeknownst to her, the dinner plans were fake. Matt proposed to Julie right there in the park. But that’s not all . . .
“He had planned a surprise engagement party with all of my family, our friends and his entire family (who flew out from Philadelphia!),” recalls Julie. “He did an amazing job planning the best surprise ever and made it one of the most memorable days of my life.”
How sweet is that?!
Julie and Matt were married at The Manor House last August. The wedding day is unforgettably romantic, just like their love story.

“Walking down the aisle holding my (now) husband’s hand and the two of us being so excited to finally be married . . . I’ll never forget that feeling!”
“My mom had always told me she wanted a big production for cutting the wedding cake, to have the DJ announce it to all the guests. When it finally came time to cut the cake, my mother stood watching for approximately five seconds, heard Bruno Mars’ “24k Magic” song come on and made a run for the dance floor! She ended up missing most of the cake cutting, but she said she couldn’t miss an opportunity to dance to her favorite song!”
“It was the best day of our lives and we could not have imagined a more perfect day.”
