Kristin & Matthew in Portsmouth, NH

Kristin and Matthew were both looking for someone special when they met on Match.com. From short messages to long emails to phone calls and eventually dinner, the two discovered that they were a perfect match! In fact, neither of them ever contacted anyone else. The Bride Kristin Hastings, 27, HR representative The Groom Matthew Austin, 27, senior professional services consultant The Date July 12 A year after they met, just a few days before Christmas, Kristin came home from work to find a small box sitting on the table. Matthew asked her to open it, and when she did, he knelt and proposed. They decided that the New Hampshire coast was the perfect location to gather friends and family for their summer wedding.
