After connecting through Match.com, Justine and Matt did not meet in person for about 2 months as she was very nervous about meeting someone online. They decided to meet at In-N-Out and even then it took about 4 months after that initial meeting to start officially dating. But once they did, they knew it would be forever.
After an intimate proposal in their home (filled with dessert, roses and the ring) they began planning for their happily ever after. While living in Tucson (Matt is enlisted in the Air Force) they decided to plan their beautiful day up north in Sedona, Arizona.
Their wedding day was gorgeous. With the sun shining, their closest family and friends surrounded these two with love and support. Justine has a love of butterflies, so much so, that they did a butterfly release after their first kiss as husband and wife. While it was beautiful, the real beauty came about an hour later, when one butterfly was saved for the reception. It clung to Justine through kisses, toasts, and the first dance with her daddy.
This wedding will be a day I will never forget! Thanks so much for including me in your day and I wish you two a lifetime of happiness!

Daddy's First Look, boy was he so cute when he first saw his beautiful daughter!
Such a Sweet First Look, his expressions at seeing his beautiful bride are priceless!
Butterfly Release after the ceremony <3
There was an extra Butterfly that they reserved for the reception. Once it was released, it first clung to Justine's finger, then made itself a home right on her butterfly tattoo. It stayed there for all of the toasts and even through most of the daddy-daughter dance and then flew away. It was absolutely beautiful!
