Lauren & Matt’s Story

Lauren and Matt officially met in 2011, although in their college years prior they unknowingly ran in MANY of the same circles. Lauren was college roommates with Matt’s friends from high school and later studied abroad in Australia with two of Matt’s closest Ithaca College friends. It was not until Ohio State weekend of 2011, in which their worlds collided at Penn State University where they discovered their uncanny similarities and long list of mutual friends. After one night out together, both Lauren and Matt knew their connection was something unique and special. Lauren and Matt both finished their senior year of college, keeping in touch with one another every so often.

A year later, Matt and Lauren reconnected in Philadelphia – it only took one night of talking about music and a few drinks of course, to rekindle their once connection. A week later, Matt asked Lauren on their first date – a Head and the Heart concert and the rest is history. From Philadelphia to Tampa, Matt and Lauren have spent the past 5 years building the foundation of their lives together.

Matt proposed November of 2016 in Rittenhouse square, followed by a day of celebrations with family and friends. They currently live in Allentown with their loyal chocolate lab, Bodie. Currently, Lauren works in Finance and Matt is in his 4th year of Medical School. They can’t wait to start married life together and see what new adventures lie ahead.
