So many people have asked me, “Does it really work?” And time and time again I tell them the same thing about online dating, “It’s no different than if you were to bump into someone on the street!” Whether you meet your love online, at a bar, in school, or wherever, it's what happens after that initial meeting that counts. Sara and I are big advocates of the online dating scene; she met her fiance, Kevin, on the app Plenty of Fish, and as we can see that worked out great! ;) Many of our close friends have found love-filled and enduring relationships through online dating as well, including me! I met my boyfriend on the Bumble app and I feel like the happiest girl alive with him!
So when we found out that Colleen and Matt met online while using Hinge, we were thrilled! These cuties met in October of 2015 and they had their first date at Cask, a wine bar in Murray Hill, NYC, that was nearby Matt's apartment. The two had a few drinks before moving onto the El Rio Grande, where they enjoyed more drinks. Afterwards, Colleen and Matt entered a competition of Drunkio Kart at Matt’s apartment! I don’t know about you, but that sounds like an amazing date night to me! Your girl loves her Beerio/Drunkio Kart!
Three years later, Matt decided to embark on a new chapter with Colleen in the exact same place things began. On a date night to Cask once again, Matt got down on one knee and popped the biggest question of his life! Colleen said yes and the couple then headed to El Rio Grande once more where their friends were waiting to celebrate with them!
Colleen and Matt recited their vows to each other at the Philadelphia Waterworks. Their wedding was modern and simplistic, with a hint of boho vibes! This adorable couple was just amazing to work with; we quite literally took them on a hike to get to the top of a cliff next to the venue and they were all for it! It was over 95 degrees and Colleen was such a champ as she hiked up the trail in her beautiful dress so that we could get some AMAZING sky shots! And Matt was ever the gentleman as he held his lady’s hand and veil the whole way!
