Katie and Matt will be getting married this June in the lovely Walled Gardens at the Biltmore Estate, followed by a reception at the Conservatory. This is such an amazing venue because it is so intimate, and surrounded by gorgeous gardens. I am so happy for them! Katie and Matt have been together for over 5 years now, so they are over the moon about finally becoming husband and wife. Read more about this great couple below…
How did you meet each other?
Matt moved to Arkansas for a job with a vendor for Walmart in Northwest Arkansas. I grew up in the area and stayed in Fayetteville after college. We were neighbors in the same apartment complex—we actually lived right across from each other. We would see each other around, but I didn’t think Matt was interested in me for a long time. I had seen him going for a run one day and asked him if he would want to get together sometime. The first time we hung out, it wasn’t really a date, and I decided I didn’t think things were ever going to be that serious with us. Matt asked me for a second chance and to go to dinner with him—I agreed and we have been together ever since.
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
We went for an early morning walk on the beach in Florida and Matt asked me to marry him! It was perfect. Neither of us can remember what the other one said—we were both so excited and in shock!
What do you two do for a living?
Matt works for Kraft Heinz and I teach Kindergarten.
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
Matt and I love to go walk at a trail around a lake by our house. That is probably of our favorite things to do. We also love traveling together. We also like to eat Mexican food, watch movies, go to concerts, and take naps with our two cats.
Why did you choose the Biltmore Estate as your wedding location?
We still can’t believe we are getting married at Biltmore. The home and grounds are so spectacular. We love everything about Biltmore. We feel we couldn’t have picked a more perfect location.
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
Katie- I can’t wait for Matt to see me in my dress for the first time. Both of our families mean a lot to us, so I am very excited about spending the day bringing our families together.
