Their Engagement Story
Back in August ‘06, Roxanne and Matt met eyes across the dance floor at a dimly lit club in Old Town Scottsdale. He continued to woo her w/ his charm and a cocktail and they’ve been together ever since. 🙂
In February ‘08, Matt made Valentine’s dinner reservations at La Fontanella which was sign #1 b/c that is HIGHLY unusual for him to make reservations anywhere. Then he was oddly quiet all evening and seemed visibly nervous which clued me even further. They had a delicious Italian dinner that was followed by a heart-shaped cheesecake for dessert. When the server brought it out, Roxanne immediately noticed the ring pop that was in the middle of the cake. Matt then got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She thought she had managed to utter a “yes” in b/w sobs until a guy across the restaurant yelled, “So what did she say?!” Needless to say, she accepted. 🙂
Their Wedding Day Theme Plan
Their wedding colors are black & fuchsia w/ lime green highlights. As for their dream wedding, the most important aspect of it is for their family and close friends to be a part of the day that Matt and Roxanne exchange our wedding vows. They both are extremely close to their families, especially their mothers, so the day will definitely be an emotional one.
What the couple believes is special about their wedding that makes them feel they should win this free sponsorship?
I come from a very traditional Korean family while Matt has German lineage and was born and raised here in the states. Our wedding will be a meeting of 2 very different cultures and symbolize 2 very different people joining to create a new life together. We’re both very blessed to each have such an amazing family willing to travel across the states (and some across the world) to celebrate our special day w/ us.
