They first met while working retail in college. Matt was already working at Guess in the Valley Fair Mall when Samantha was hired on. When Matt’s first say Samantha in the store he thought, “Oooh who is this cute Asian girl that is going to work here?” and Samantha was thinking, “Wow, he’s pretty tall.”
After chatting a bit they found that they both attended San Jose State and from there Matt and Samantha started to spending time with one another.
“I’ve always been the type of person who can’t study at home because I get too distracted, so I would study late at night at the library. Matt eventually started going with me and our relationship continued from there.”
Matt, what do you LOVE about Samantha?
“I love that she has been around through thick and thin and has stuck by me since day one. Although we became close friends fairly quickly, it felt right and I knew that we would have a lasting relationship. I love her company. We have been together for almost five years and I know that I can be myself around her without throwing her off, but she still jokingly tells me I’m weird. If I’m being a little silly and I decide to have a “dance-off” (that I always win by the way) she will go along with it without hesitation. I also love the fact that she is a very considerate and caring individual. This will come in handy when we have a littles running around!”
Samantha, what do you LOVE about Matt?
“Matt is awesome. He might be shy when you first meet him, but he’s silly and funny when you get to know him. My friends tell me that Matt is perfect because he seems to be good at everything he does. I’m always surprised at how many things Matt can do and how well he can do them. From fixing cars to ice skating, sometimes I think he can do anything. Matt is also able to put up with most of me, even my singing.”
SILLY QUESTION! If you were stranded on a deserted island what one comfort item would you have with you?
Matt: A ton of rice so I can make all the sushi I want to with all the fish swimming around.
Samantha: Is there electricity (ha ha)? I’d bring a heated blanket.
What are you both looking forward to the most during the celebration of your wedding?
“We’re looking forward to seeing all of our friends and family together for the first time!”
