Beach Proposal with Fireworks; Matt and Diana

DianaThis couple is near and dear to our hearts! Diana and Matt are Sarasota natives (where our founder is from!) and we’ve enjoyed watching them take on the world! Both are passionate entrepreneurs – talented and extremely kind at every turn. Diana’s fabulous shoe line, Diana E Kelly, has been featured in Southern Living magazine and has donated over $30,000 to charities across the US. Matt has also made his mark in the auto industry, being named Automotive News’s 40 under 40. So excited to feature these two on the site – enjoy their fairytale proposal!

Matt and Diana’s Story: Matt and I first met while running on the same track team at Cardinal Mooney High School. Matt broke many of the school records and I enjoyed running the 400 and 4×400! Fast forward a few years and a suggestion from our mutual friend, Christian Zielger, and here we are.. engaged! We started dating September 13, 2011 and our relationship and love for each other grew quickly. We thank God for bringing us together to share in the journey of life, our family and friends for their unconditional love and support for us and our relationship. We pray that the we can pay forward the eternal love we have for each other by helping make a difference through random acts of kindness.
