It was 2015 during an election campaign event. Matt and Chelsea briefly met, but the two were unable to connect with all the hustle and bustle that the evening brought. Eventually, Matt was able to track Chelsea down through a mutual friend. The two had their first date, and the rest quickly became history.
At the time, both of them were in undergrad programs. Knowing that they both wanted to pursue law, they decided to give their relationship the best try they could. Matt left for law school in Ohio. Chelsea was 500 miles away. Distance could not keep these two apart. After five years of weekend trips and telephone conversations, Matt and Chelsea purchased a gorgeous house by the lake, adopted a rescue dog named Lincoln, and put a ring on that finger.
