We're getting married!

August 17, 2019 / Kitz farm / Strafford , NH


Our Story

It was 2001 when Matt met Traci in the halls of Elm Street Jr. High. Although neither can recall the precise moment, one thing was for sure, it was the beginning of a lasting friendship that was strengthened by countless hours of “Punk Goes Acoustic”, and a shared assessment that they were both too cool to participate in gym class.

After graduating college, Matt & Traci returned to Nashua where they (almost literally) ran into each other. They started spending time together, and thanks to the magic of scorpion bowls and Five Dragons karaoke, it wasn’t long before they fell in love.

In the years since, they moved across the country to Seattle, became proud puppy parents to their two dogs Ollie & Lumi, and have been partners on countless other adventures along the way.
