How We Met
We first met at a church function, realizing later (unknown at the time of meeting) that we each had been recommended by friends for one another. We had a whirlwind romance and couldn’t get enough of each other. The seriousness of our relationship soon ended up causing us to determine if we were ready to take the next step, which we were not.
Fast forward four years, and after limited contact and a series of seemingly miraculous experiences, we realized that we could not live without each other. Fourteen years ago, we had a magical destination wedding in Hawaii, where we brought our families together for a big family vacation, before getting married.
It has been bliss ever since - even in the tough times. We find great comfort in each other.
We have differing, yet highly complementary personalities, and very similar interests, beliefs, and visions for our future, which gives us great stability and a strong foundation for our family.
We are best friends and want to share every experience in life together, along with our family.
What Matt Thinks of Wendy
Wendy has an incredible combination of personality traits - she’s deeply caring, fiercely loyal, highly empathetic, and driven to achieve. She has a great love for life and compassion for others. Wendy’s friends call her “Superwoman” and with good reason. She is one of the most talented and capable people that you’ll ever meet, yet she’s also incredibly warm and caring.
Wendy brings the same level of passion and dedication to our sons’ development as she did to her education and successful career. She is the type of mother who is right in the middle of play with the kids. I learn so much as I watch the loving way that she works with our boys to help them learn and grow. She is very thoughtful about the way that we both encourage and correct them so that they continue to develop confidence and independence. She truly is an amazing mother.
Her strengths make up for my weaknesses and vice versa. Wendy is the perfect match for me, and she has helped me grow in so many important ways. I feel honored to be her husband.
What Wendy Thinks of Matt
Matt is a remarkable individual with incredible depth, sensitivity, humor, and intelligence. He constantly amazes me. He is deeply respectful of all living things and emanates love to all who know him. He is a loving, understanding, and supportive husband, who is so patient when working through difficulties.
As a father, he is understanding, patient, and ridiculously fun, making life full of laughter and joy, as well as hard work. The patience and care he gives our sons as he lovingly helps them to improve and learn is inspiring. “Google Matt” (as friends call him) is always teaching the boys new things. He has a successful career, and though he loves his work, he always places us first. He has a great love and appreciation for the outdoors and is dedicated to giving back in whatever way he can.
Matt has had the deepest and most profound impact for good in my life. I feel stronger and more well rooted in all facets of life because of him. He is my rock, my safe place, and my best friend.
