Hi, We're sam & matt

Our story began in 2007 while playing volleyball at a park with mutual friends in Louisville, KY. We hit it off right away but only as friends. After a few months it developed into something more and a year later he proposed! He proposed in a field with a picnic and a 1,000 piece Lego castle that he built (ask us to know why!) Then on July 18, 2009 we were married! The story of us is a fun one; I mean we were almost attacked by wolves on our first date, so when we meet for coffee feel free to ask what that was all about!
