Arianna Nicola and Matt Pezzullo are set to wed October 31, 2020 at the Hotel Viking in Newport, RI.
How We Met
Matt and I met in the summer on 2013. But the real story starts in the summer of 2010, when we were both at our mutual friend Jackie’s birthday. Matt saw me come into the party from a distance and later asked who I was. Jackie, having known me since we were three, knew I wasn’t quite ready for Matt yet, so she kept him a secret. However, Matt knew from that point in 2010 that he wanted to ask me on a date. Fast forward to May of 2013, again at Jackie’s birthday, I saw Matt from across the room bringing in his now infamous taco dip, and wondered who the hot guy was at this party (also, the taco dip was delicious). Our first date was in August of that same year. Matt had a very romantic date planned at DeWolf Tavern in Bristol, however the night before our first date, I was out with some friends and asked him to meet me. I conveniently left the part out where I was out with about twelve girls (where he would be the only guy). We hit it off instantly, had an amazing night out and a perfect real first date the next day. We both knew within a month that this was it for both of us. We moved in together in March of 2014 and the rest is history.
Our Proposal Story
On July 12, 2019, we were at Roger Williams’ Food Truck Friday (one of of favorite summer spots) and Matt asked to take a walk to the casino gazebo behind carousel village. We walked over with our two puppies, Remi the Yorkie and Sadie our rescue Feist Terrier. When we finally got to the gazebo, I had picked up Remi to look out at the water and Matt got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
