Clear Cut Couples: Matt and Meghan

Matt and Meghan met in middle school in 6th grade! They were best friends through middle school, high school, and college, and finally decided to give dating a try summer after junior year of college.

"Technically" their first date was an Ed Sheeran concert with 2 other friends in Chicago. This was their first time going out and doing something as "more than friends.” Their first real date was at a taco restaurant, Bel Air in Madison, WI. Since then, they have been together for over 4.5 years!

They have shared so many incredible memories over the years! Their biggest highlight is making it out of the friendzone ;) They love to travel together, some of their favorite memories are from a West Coast road trip from Nevada up to San Francisco with many stops along the way. They recently went to Portugal right after Matt proposed! Meghan expected the engagement may happen on that trip but Matt was too nervous to travel internationally with the ring!

Meghan thought she was going to dinner with her best friend Ellen, and Ellen picked her up and made a few wrong turns leading her to a lake. Meghan had absolutely no idea and was shocked to see Matt standing there when Meghan thought he was out of the state. Matt had the perfect set up by the lake with a blanket, pillows, champagne, and flowers. He surprised Meg AGAIN with all of her best friends hiding at a brewery after to celebrate.

Meghan had given Matt a few clues to what rings she liked in general, but Matt did all of the ring shopping on his own! Meghan loves her ring so much and loves it even more that Matt did it all himself!

They are getting married October 8th, 2022 in their hometown of Appleton, WI! They know it's going to be their best memory yet! Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you!
