Our story

A young man from Marathon, Ontario, only 15 years old, starts his first job at a coffee shop. He just moved to Onaping Falls, leaving his friends and hometown behind and would be going to a new high school in the fall. Unfortunately, he thought all of this sucked.

Until meeting a girl.

At that same coffee shop, a young woman, 16 years old, hears of a new kid starting at work. They spend lots of time together, taking people's coffee orders and playfully guessing if the next person would order a Double Double or a steeped tea.

Weeks went by, and summer turned to fall. They grew closer, and their parents would both agree that they were inseparable. On November 28, 2008, Samantha and Matthew officially became "a thing."

They went to each other's proms and saw each other graduate high school. They even made it through a year of long-distance while Samantha went to university in Ottawa and Matthew finished his last year of high school.

In 2011, they were reunited in Ottawa and moved into their first apartment. After graduating college, they decided to call the city home for good, under the condition that Matthew could find some good hunting spots. Thankfully, he did.

In June 2013, their lives changed forever when they adopted Frankie, their now 11-year-old pug. Anyone who knows the couple understands that Frankie is more than just a dog. He is their baby.

In 2020, Matt and Sam purchased their first home in Carlsbad Springs, nestled in rural Ottawa. On an ordinary Tuesday, September 21, 2021, Matthew got down on one knee in their kitchen and asked Samantha to marry him. Of course, she said yes – after being shocked about him *finally* popping the question.

On June 1, 2024, Samantha and Matthew will tie the knot and can't wait to have you be a part of their big day!
