Our Love Story
In fair Varadero, where we lay our scene in 2015, both Matt and Sandra decided to go on Reading Week trips with their respective friend groups. Sandra first noticed Matt on the plane, where he kept turning around to yell stuff to his friends who were sitting beside her. Little did she know, the "annoying plane guy" would not only end up at the same resort, but also her across the hall neighbour. After meeting and chatting with each others friends all week, Matt and Sandra officially met on the last night of the trip when Matt came up while Sandra was talking to his friend. A group of people at the resort decided to start a pyramid out of beer cups, and Sandra convinced Matt (who hated beer at the time) that they absolutely had to participate. That night they met a very drunk guy who told them that one day they would get married and they had to invite him. If only we could find a way to get in touch with him to let him know. After tons of drinks, laughing, and chatting all evening, they parted ways. The two friend groups ran into each other at the airport, and Matt and Sandra briefly chatted before boarding the plane. As fate would have it, it turned out that Sandra's seat was behind Matt's on the plane. Once at baggage claim, Matt asked for Sandra's Snapchat, followed by her number a few days later. After a few months of texting and Facetiming, they went for their first date and they have been besties ever since. Matt had always wanted to propose in Poland because he knew it was Sandra's favourite place. In August 2022, Matt and Sandra went on a trip to Poland with Sandra's family. After a few days of sightseeing, they went to Zakopane and everyone went to the mountain Kasprowy Wierch. After taking a lot of photos, they climbed a bit further up the mountain, and Matt asked Sandra's sister to take a photo of them. Sandra almost tripped when trying to pose for the photo and when she turned around, Matt was down on one knee. After a cute little speech and some tears, Matt asked her to "be his best friend forever" and she said yes and now here we are! "When you're a kid, you assume your parents are soulmates. My kids are gonna be right about that." — Pam Beesly
