Introducing Savanna and Matt, these two will be saying “I Do” on May 1, 2021, at The French Farmhouse Venue!
How Did We Meet?
We met in August 2014 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I was on a vacation trip with my family and he was with his friends. We hung out on the beach that day and then had a date night that night, just us two. We walked hours on the beach, sat in an oversized Lifeguard chair, watched the fireworks over Myrtle Beach, and got to know each other. He is from Pennsylvania and I am from Texas. I left the next morning to come back home, everyone thought we’d never see each other again, but here we are. We talked/skyped every day for the next3 months. In November 2014 he drove here to visit me, I flew there (to Pittsburgh) in December, we met up in Tennessee in February 2015, and then he moved here to Texas in March 2015! We were once total strangers from different sides of the country, but now we’re engaged!
How did Matt propose?
Matt proposed on New Year’s Eve on top of Mount Washington in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We got engaged in the prettiest spot that overlooks the whole city! The easiest yes (“of course”) I’ve ever said. After he proposed we attended the most fun New Year’s Eve party with a bunch of his friends, so it was almost like a mini engagement party. The next day his parents had all of the family over for a New Years’ lunch so we were able to share the good news with all of his family and friends in Pittsburgh! When we came back to Texas we had an engagement dinner with a few of our closest friends here.
Why did you choose The French Farmhouse?
The French Farmhouse was the first of four venues that we went too. We were pretty much set the first time we toured, but wanted to view the other three on our lists. This venue isn’t even complete yet but we have so much faith that every single aspect of it will be amazing!! We believe this venue will give a huge WOW factor to us and all of our guests. We loved all of the details that Michelle and Kelsey described the French farmhouse to be. We love all of the vintage pieces, the big windows with natural lighting inside the reception area, the bridal suite, the spiral staircase to the groom’s suite, the huge tree for the ceremony space, I could go on and on. Michelle and Kelsey made us feel welcomed and at home. We are so excited that we have chosen The French Farmhouse for our big day!
