Bianca + Matt
How did you meet?
We met for the first time in September of 2011 when we sat next to each other in biology class at Red Bank Catholic High School. We only went to school together for a short six months before Matt switched schools to go to the high school in his town. Living only a town apart from each other, we would casually run into each other over the years at friends’ houses or out in town, never thinking anything of it. One day in December of 2015, we both coincidentally decided to go to Hoboken and ran into each other. We hung out the whole day, and from this day on, it was history.
When did you know they were the one?
I have one specific day in mind. We were in my car early on just talking about where our relationship was going and how we felt about one another. Nothing major happened, but the concersation just hit home with me. After this, I knew he was in this for the right reasons and was very serious about us. I walked into my house And thought he’s the one and I wanted to do everything I could to be the best girlfriend from here on out.
What are your three favourite attributes of your partner
His sense of humor, his family values, and he’s a complete gentleman.
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
Everthine Bridal in Madison, Connecticut. It’s actually a funny story. My cousin bought her dress from this boutique a year before me. When she sent me a picture of her in her gown, I immediately zoomed in to the mannequin behind her and said, I want that dress. I then found out the dress was MWL and I followed their Instagram account and screenshot all the dresses I wanted to try on. I drove 3 hours to the boutique and said yes to the dress that day.
Who proposed and how?
Matt proposed! The day before Christmas Eve our families were getting together at my house for dinner to celebrate Christmas. This year for Christmas, we had picked out our gifts together. Once Matt and his family came over, Matt handed me my gift and told me to open it. Immediately I was wondering why he wanted me to open my gift before Christmas, especially because we picked them out. Little did I know, I opened the box and instead of a bracelet, there was a ring sitting in a little wreath and Matt down on one knee. I was completely in shock but could not be happier.
