Matt and Lyndsey met one night in Roanoke. Matt fell for her that first night, but Lyndsey had just finished college and was too invested in finding a job at the moment. She tried voiding him, thinking that it was possible, but she couldn’t have stayed away from him even if she tried! They ended up dating after 3 months!!
Not long after they started officially dating, she got a teaching job in Northern Virginia and he moved to Richmond for his job. They were only 40 minutes away from each other so they would meet halfway and have weekly dinner dates at Waffle House!
After a year, they moved in together. And not much after that Matt proposed.
He had her family convince Lyndsey that she had to come home for a family dinner one random weekend in December. After just celebrating Thanksgiving! Not excited to make another 3 hour trip home, she came home with Matt’s promise that he would take her on a day date Saturday afternoon to a winery at Smith Mountain Lake. They had a great time doing their tasting, when the workers asked them to take a tour of the grounds. It was chilly outside, but it was beautiful so they went and walked around. That’s when Matt got down on one knee and asked Lyndsey to marry him! ” Will a full heart and eyes full of happy tears I joyfully accepted and said yes!” said Lyndsey.
She tried calling all of her family and friends and no one would answer their phones! She cried the whole way home thinking of how perfect the day had been. As they were about to pull into Lyndsey’s parent’s house Matt told her that he had one more surprise. The whole family, his and hers and all of their friends were waiting on the front porch! She starting crying again! They had such a special moment together at the winery, now they got to share that special moment and celebrate with everyone they love.
They moved back to Roanoke, bought a house and had the best day of their lives! All in one month!!!
