Meet Linnea and Matt and their sweet pup, Bailey. These are their first family portraits and they happen to be their Engagement Pics too! Here’s a little bit about their story.
1) Where did you meet?
We met Freshman year of high school but didn’t start officially dating until the end of senior year when he was actually living in Chicago.
(2) Who made the first move?
Matt made the first move Freshman year of high school. When he asked me out and I was too immature and nervous so I (eventually) said no. We remained friends throughout high school and began “talking” as more than friends after a New Years party our senior year. This transition seemed very natural so it’s hard to say who actually made the first move.
(3) How long did you date before getting engaged?
We dated for about 8 years before we got engaged. We wanted to finish all of our schooling before taking the next step so Matt proposed right after I graduated from PT school.
(4) What’s your Proposal Story?
(5) Did anyone else know before you? (that he was going to propose?)
Matt told most of his friends, his parents, and my parents, but he didn’t tell any of my friends (probably because they wouldn’t have been able to keep the secret)
(6) Matt when did you know Linnea was ‘The One’? and Linnea, when did you know Matt was ‘The One’?
We are actually waiting to tell each other these stories on our wedding day! (STAY TUNED)
(7) Anything else you want to include?
Less than a week after we got back from Europe we adopted our dog, Bailey, and a few months later we bought our first house. We love our little family and are so excited to see what life has in store for us!
