    About Us

    Proposal

    Matt and Natalie had always discussed a future together and because of this open dialogue Matt had mentioned engagement to Natalie by fall of 2016. He asked Natalie if she was open to the idea of ring shopping together and Natalie was excited about that opportunity! The two went shopping in Dallas and Natalie picked out her favorite band. With the ring secured, Matt discussed a proposal with his brother and sister in law. On September 18, 2016 on their favorite hiking trail, Matt got down on one knee and proposed to Natalie while his brother and wife were kind enough to document the perfect moment!

    About Us

    Our Story

    The first time Matt and Natalie met is when Natalie visited the United Capital Dallas office in December, when she was making a trip to a city she had never traveled to before yet was considering moving to permenantly! The office manager recommended that Natalie ask Matt for living recommendations. Once Natalie moved to Dallas in March of 2014, they started hanging out outside of work with other younger coworkers. There was always an attraction to one another and a friendship, but there was a little hestitation on whether something more could develop considering they worked together. Matt decided to take a chance and made plans for the two of them to go to a Rangers game in July of the same year. That baseball game opened to the door to more dates and within a month they were in a relationship! Just a little over a year later Natalie moved into the apartment where Matt lived. Almost a year after moving in together, Matt proposed to Natalie!

    Matt and Natalie love to travel. They try to go on a trip either somewhat local or across the country once a month. They also enjoy going to the pool during the summer and spending time with their favorite fur companion, their cat Bruno.

    About Us

    The Groom

    Matthew was born in Dallas, Texas. When he was young his family moved to Lubbock, Texas and that is where he was raised. He attended Texas Tech University which is also in Lubbock. Due to his degree in Personal Financial Planning and his MBA, he was recruited to United Capital in 2012. It was also in 2012 that he moved to Dallas to work in the Dallas United Capital branch. At this point he was unaware that his future wife would step into the office just 2 years later!

    About Us

    The Bride

    Natalie grew up in California. She was born in San Diego and then moved to the Orange Country area when she started attending University of California, Irvine. After she was done with college she stayed in Orange County for another 8 years, working at United Capital. It wasn't until March of 2014 that she made her fateful move to Dallas, Texas. She made the big move knowing that she at least had the same company that she loved to fall back on. It was none other than United Capital where she met Matt! When she arrived in Dallas, she settled into her uptown apartment quite nicely. She was only single for about 4 months before Matt took her off the dating market.
