Matt + Jillian | Sawyer, Michigan

How They Met:
Matt and I both graduated from Baylor University, but never met each other while we were there. Little did we know, we had a connection to each other through our mutual friends, Kim and Kel! While at Baylor, Matt played on the men's golf team and became close friends with Kel Presley, who played on the baseball team. They both moved to Dallas after graduation and became roommates. Throughout college I got to know Kel because he was dating Kim, his wife/one of my college roommates!A few years after college, the Presley's encouraged Matt and I to meet on a blind date. They spoke to us separately about each other, and knew that we would be a perfect match! Kel even came to a spinning class with me to prove how much he wanted Matt and I to "work out"! Although Matt and I were hesitant about going on another blind date, we both took a chance and are so glad we did!

The Proposal:
Matt and I had our first date at the State & Allen Lounge and easily talked for three hours! Within months of our blind date, I knew that Matt was the man that I, and many others, had been praying for. A year later, Matt proposed at State & Allen Lounge and flew us to Chicago to celebrate with my family that live there! Little did I know when we arrived, Matt flew in my sister and brother-in-law as well. The whole family spent the weekend together exploring the city and celebrating our engagement. To top off an already awesome weekend, the Chicago Cubs clinched the Division Championship!
