It Was Inspired by Their Beachfront Wedding Venue and Favorite Song

The couple got married on the beach in Rehoboth Beach, Del. The place where they were married in the exact location andcelebrated their very first (COVID-friendly) wedding ceremony.

Matt and Evelyn believed they had something unique when they first met in 2017 and didn’t want the first time they met to be over (and even got to meet each other’s parents on the third date). After a few years, Matt decided it was the right time to propose to Evelyn to ensure they would be married to each other for the rest of their lives. The ceremony was held within Rehoboth Beach, Del. A town that Evelyn describes as”her “happy place,” and in which she as well as Matt already had made cherished memories.

The day before the proposal, Matt and Evelyn inconspicuously went to the beach, just as they did before. However, when their favorite music, “Into the Mystic” by Van Morrison, began playing in the background, Matt gave Evelyn a gentle push. “Babe, it’s happening,” Matt told her when she realized it wasn’t just a normal afternoon in the sun. He put away their sunscreen and towels then sat up on his knees, took from his engagement ring and then requested Evelyn to get married. When she said yes, she realized that Matt’s twin sister as well as her husband were nearby, waiting to record the moment.

Of course their engagement in August 2020 had plenty of difficulties. In a bid to start their wedding, the couple decided to go ahead with an intimate, family-only wedding in September 2021. The couple will then have an elaborate celebration scheduled with Laura Ritchie and her team at Grit & Grace, Inc. in September 2022. The couple was able to hold a private ceremony at the beach home of Evelyn’s family which was always her ideal; the house would not be able to accommodate the grand wedding they planned for. The bigger, 185-person “barefoot and black-tie” celebration was held at the Indian River Life Saving Station in Rehoboth Beach, Del. On September 10, 2022.

Rehoboth has always held a particular spot within Evelyn and Matt’s lives. Along with their proposal site, it was the location where Matt first approached Evelyn to become his girlfriend. The best part about it? They held their intimate wedding, which was COVID-friendly, at the beachfront of the town.

Something Blue

The couple used symbolic symbols into their paper and the details, which were designed with Dandelion Patch. Dandelion Patch, including monograms that included golf balls (their preferred pastime) coffee, bagels and coffee (they have met through Coffee Meets Bagel, the Coffee Meets Bagel dating app) and the sailboat (they have the “dock boat” at their home in Virginia).

A sophisticated, yet beachy blue and white color scheme characterized the invitations which was finished with gold foil and dark blue ink and custom-cut edges in blue painted. The RSVP card included a playful element, asking guests sing the track that keeps people dancing.

Welcome to Rehoboth

Evelyn and Matt presented their guests each the monogrammed cookie and a book as their welcome gifts. “This included a map of Rehoboth with key landmarks, like the welcome drinks location, venue, after-party, and family beach house,” the bride’s statement reads. The final detail was a plane design on its map’s illustrations (which implied an exciting part of their wedding).
