How they met: Mat and Nikki grew up 1 mile away from each other. They were bar mitzvahed by the same Rabbi at the same temple. Their dads are loyal to the same bike paths and their moms have passed each other shopping at the grocery countless times. How Nikki and Mat's paths never crossed until their matchmaker came along is a mystery.
The proposal: A mutual family friend insisted that the two should meet. He was convinced that Nikki and Mat would instantly fall in love. After some encouragement and nagging from their parents, Mat and Nikki went out on a date. They closed the restaurant down, enjoying one another's company so much, and the evening eventually ended with the future lovebirds splitting a pint of Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey on the car ride home. Over two years later, a pint of that same ice cream flavor held the beautiful ring that Mat would surprise Nikki with when he asked her to spend the rest of their lives together.
