Matt and Lydia’s love story began over ten years ago when they met and dated in high school. Scroll on for more about Matt’s proposal to Lydia and a few highlights from their gorgeous, wintry wedding day.
In Lydia’s words….
We got engaged on Put-In-Bay, Ohio in October 2018. My brother-in-law and I have very close birthdays so every year we take a family trip to celebrate. We went to PIB for a long weekend and arrived on my birthday. I told Matt I was very thankful for my gifts (but I was kind of hoping for a ring!). The next day we went sight seeing and had a tour of the lighthouse on the island. I didn’t know it at the time but the lighthouse was closed for the season and Matt and my sister had worked together to get the tour guide to open it up specifically for us! I love lighthouses since my dad was in the Coast Guard our whole life growing up, and I worked for the DNR at a lighthouse for 7 years. The tour was incredible. When we got to the top and were looking out at the blue skies, the beautiful water and land, Matt turned me around, got down on one knee and proposed to me with my parents, my sister, and my brother-in-law all there! It was more perfect than I could’ve imagined.
We were so honored to witness the beginning of Matt and Lydia’s next chapter together this past November at Caberfae Peaks Resort. The snow machines and sunshine made for some extra sparkly outdoor photos that day and Lydia’s tear jerking ‘First Look’ with her dad before the ceremony was one of the sweetest we’ve ever seen.
