Cayla grew up summer vacationing with her family on Nantucket. Soon into her relationship with Matt, she learned that he had never been out to the island, although growing up in Massachusetts. Cayla insisted that Matt join her and her family on a week-long vacation… that’s where it all began. The two of them began taking trips out to the island several times a year for long weekend getaways and week-long family trips.
Matt and Cayla rescued a puppy in the summer of 2012 and named her Sankaty. It became a quick tradition that the three of them would take a picture with Sankaty Head Lighthouse during each of their trips. During their October 2014 getaway, Matt surprised Cayla with his proposal in the middle of their photograph session at Sankaty Head Lighthouse. It was perfect and a complete surprise. Matt even engraved the coordinates of Sankaty Head Lighthouse within the band of the ring.
They are looking to get married out on Nantucket in the Fall of 2015 – no dates have been set yet.
