Amanda And Matt one day both swiped 'right' while on Tinder in their new city Atlanta, Georgia, and as they say, the rest is history! After dating for sometime, Matt proposed while they were in Belgium together and after that they set out ot plan their dream wedding day.
Matt and Amanda have a special love for spending quality time together and good craft beer, oo they decided to get married in their favorite place to go after work and on the weekends in their new hometown! Monday Night Brewing has recently opened Monday Night Garage, an event venue prepared to host parties and weddings in Atlanta, Georgia. Amanda and Matt's beautiful wedding day was complemented perfectly by the unique and eccentric space that is Monday Night Garage. Amanda went all out with planning her wedding day! She ordered dried florals and arranged all of them herself. She incorporated the use of dried hops into her floral crown and the boutonnieres to tie in the brewery aspect of her wedding day. Amanda even made the balloon arch that she and Matt got married under herself! Their wedding day ended with a super fun new tradition; the smashing of a piñata cake instead of just cutting a regular cake!
A little from the Bride & the Groom:
How did you two meet/start dating?
Tinder for the win! We were both new to the city and where looking for friends online, talked for awhile and decided to go watch a movie. The first date was a bit awkward or at least I thought so! But we went hiking soon after that and got caught in a rainstorm. We were both smitten after our dance in the waterfall and our mountainside mud fight.
The Proposal Story
"Girl. Movie proposal! I went to visit matt in Belgium, and we spent the first day in Brussels. The next day we did a short day trip to Bruges, one of THE most romantic places in the world. We get there, and he is telling me all about the romeo and Juliet story behind this Lake of Love there. We walk through the city, and I'm in awe just taking tons of photos. The city was really packed that day, and I could tell Matt was frustrated but I didn't know why. So at the end of the day, he asks to just sit in the garden by the lake to chill before driving home. We walk over. and he gets sooooo nervous. And it hits me!! Like I know what's happening!
He starts talking about the day and how much he loves traveling with me... gets down on one knee, and I just immediately am down on the ground with him hugging him! I don't think I ever smiled that big in my life, I didn't even look at the ring or answer until he asked a second time. I thought my reaction was enough of an answer but engineers like straight talk! Ha! We drove to his hotel in Liege and celebrated with some wine. I found out later, he was frustrated all day because the spots he had planned to ask where all so crowded and he couldn't do it when and where he had planned. But it was perfect. Just me, him, and the Lake of Love."
