Rebecca and Matthew
How We Met
I came home from work one Thursday evening to a guy sitting on my couch. He was a friend of my roommate at the time, and had recently moved to or area. We began chatting right away about our fitness hobbies- he was an avid weightlifter and I was an aspiring Figure Competitor. We began texting regularly, training together and going out on dates, and have been together since!
How He Asked
For Christmas, Matt got me tickets to see the Nutcracker on New Years Eve. He insisted that I get a new dress for the occasion too. We planned to go into Boston for the show, and then to walk around the First Night festivities. We walked around (in the rain!) and made our way to the church in Copley Square to wait for the midnight countdown and fireworks (I love fireworks!!) Unknown to me, Matt was showing the ring off to everyone behind me! About 5 seconds before midnight, he got down on the wet stairs on one knee and asked me to be his wife! I said yes, the crowd cheered and the fireworks started! It was the best way to start 2017!
