When Brittany first reached out to me about photographing her and Matt’s Benson, NC wedding, I knew we were going to get along great! Just like me, she is a HUGE fan of Gilmore Girls and autumn! With her sweet and outgoing personality, we hit it off immediately when we first met in person!
Brittany and Matt met at a Planet Fitness in Matt’s hometown in Virginia. Brittany happened to be working their at the time and took notice of Matt one day when he came to work out. She said when she first saw him, her heart just stopped (isn’t that so sweet?!) As time went on, they began to talk more and more at the gym. Then, in April 2011, they went on their first date! Matt picked Brittany up in his yellow Jeep and they connected over Thai food. After that the rest is history!
Matt proposed to Brittany on the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. What’s really cool is that a Harry Potter scene was filmed here! Of course that day Matt wanted to propose it was SUPER windy- as in there were national alerts warning about the wind. Matthew looked over at Brittany and asked her, “Do you think this will be a good spot to propose” he then faced her, took out the ring box, and asked her to marry him. It was so windy that he was afraid to take it out of the box ,but of course my girl wanted to put that bling on her finger! They said it was perfect for them <3
What I love most about Matt and Brittany is they’re the epitome of the quote “Opposites attract.” She is a New England girl, and he is a Southern boy, but it works so well for them! They are such a sweet couple and I cannot wait for their fall wedding at the Barn at Broadslab Distillery!
