With a first date at the Cheesecake Factory you know the relationship is off to a good start (any other pot sticker fans out there?). Maura and Matt met in college at the University of Dayton (hence the super fancy first date local). Over their 8 year relationship they have lived in Dayton, Chicago and are currently building their lives together in Denver, Colorado. Matt is a police officer and SWAT operator and Maura is a cardiac and vascular coordinator.
After a Memorial Day proposal on the dock of Maura’s parents beach place in Maryland these two got to planning their big day back in DC near Maura’s family. The celebration begin with a beautiful and traditional Catholic ceremony at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and continued with an elegant reception at the National Press Club.
One of the sweetest moments of the day was when Maura and Matt toasted Maura’s parents who had celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary a few days prior and played their first dance song. Not only did they get to share that special moment on Maura and Matt’s big day but will now get to celebrate their anniversaries together for years to come.
