Mary Grace and Matt have known each other for the past 7 years! They are best friends who met doing kids theater. They did theater together for 5 years, and then Mary Grace invited Matt to a Valentine's Dance which he gladly attended because he loved to dance with her. They then spent the next day together (Valentine's Day) and that day started their relationship! Two years later, bringing us to present day, Matt Proposed to Mary Grace at her all time favorite Dinner and Theater, Medeval Times!

Mary Grace has always spent her time in the arts, whether it was performing, designing, painting, drawing, or even photography. During their relationship Mary Grace chose to use her artistic abilities in becoming a Cosmetologist. She then spent the second year of their relationship hard at work at graduating. She went to school at Golden West College and has been building up her clientel ever since. She graduated this year, passed her state board exam, and is now working at a cute little shop in Orange called, OC Hair Lounge. She specializes in coloring, cuts, special designs and is even a make-up artist. 

Matt on the other hand did not at first decide what he wanted to do so he just tried everything. He currently works at UPS, is a Director for kids theater, a Performer and Coach in Theater Arts, a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA essential oils, and finally decided to go back to school and become a Massage Therapist. He will be graduating from American Career College at the end of this year, just in time for the wedding!

Through this site you are wlecomed to donate to the happy couple directly to try and help them off set some of the cost of the wedding and honeymoon. But not only that they are offering their services in return! From Hairstyles to Massages, they are ready to work!
