Just less than three years after their first date, Matt’s parents invited the couple to vacation with them at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia. As the two were hiking along Lake Moomaw, they approached a scenic overlook. They sat down on a bench and when Lani turned to grab the snacks out of her bag, Matt got on one knee and proposed.
The Bride Lani Martinez, 27 years old, tax attorney
The Groom Matthew Sinfield, 29 years old, welding engineer
The Date May 26

It was a destination wedding for most of their guests and the perfect spot for a Memorial Day weekend celebration. When they met the coordinator at Le Meridien in Arlington, they knew they had found their venue.
