All about Bianca and Matt...
Q: Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
A: You could say we met the old fashion way. On a random Tuesday, my college best friend invited me to go to dinner at the Irish Bread Pub in Covington Square, and there he was. Matt stood up, shook my hand, and the rest is history.
Q: What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. (example: pushing each other to new limits, love to travel, huge comic book fans, foodies, etc.) What makes your relationship unique?
A: Our relationship is incredibly special in the sense that it is a partnership. Matt is my best friend and I his. We enjoy to do most of the same things together; like going to concerts, trying new restaurants, road tripping, golfing, etc. But more importantly, we also love to support one another in the areas where we differ such as our careers and personal goals. We are equals in all aspects of our relationship; love, trust, and support. Individually, we each make a conscious decision to make one another happy every single day. This is possibly the main ingredient in our happiness. The following allows our love to be effortless and fun. “You and me,” he says. “You and me.”
Q: How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship? (these may often be the same moment, but aren’t always)
A: In all honesty, it was the day we last spent time together as friends, several days before our first date. We went to an Anderson East concert, at the Cox Capitol Theater in Macon on Sunday night with our close friends. That night, we danced, sang, and laughed with each other like no one else was in the concert hall with us, and it was in that moment that I pictured my life with him in it. I wanted to do all of those things and feel the way I did that night, for the rest of my life, with him.
Q: Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
A: Oh this a funny, but simple story. On Monday, October 9th, 2017, Columbus Day, while attending work meetings in Atlanta, Matt received a call from the jeweler (Harlin Diamonds in Atlanta) that my ring “was done and ready for pick up.” The ring was ready much earlier than he anticipated and he had yet put together a proposal plan. Matt then picked up my ring, decided it was too beautiful to keep to himself, and came home and popped the big question. Just like that! I was sitting on his recliner in his apartment, waiting for us to go to dinner together. He walks in and tells me that he has a “little gift” for me. Then he walks over to me, gets on one knee, takes the box out of his pocket, and with the biggest smile on his face says “Bianca, will you marry me?” To say that I was shocked is an understatement, but I said “of course,” and had very sweet and private moment. We kissed, cried, and prayed, thanking God for bringing us together and leading us to that very special moment. “You and me, forever now,” he said.
Q: We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!
A: Haha, the ring! My ring is pretty special to me, and not just because it is a beautiful ring, or my dream ring. It because it is “my” ring. He personally chose the setting and the diamond he felt in his heart was the right one for me. It is a emerald-like cushion cut diamond on a diamond halo with a diamond band. So you can say my ring surpasses its beauty and sparkle, it carries all of Matt’s love for me in it.
Q: Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?
A: Yes! We have in fact planned a good bit of our wedding already. We are focused on an elegant feel in an industrial-like setting. We want our day to be classic but cool. But most importantly, we found the most amazing photographer, who has already captured our love in our engagement pictures and will, with no doubt, do an exceptional job capturing our big day. Thank you Brittany Leigh Photography; your talent and enthusiasm for what you do has brought so much fun to this process.
