LA’s The Way!!

Well, Matt decided to stop studying further and moved to Los Angeles. The reason being that his soulmate Liz, had landed a job as a manager at Disney in LA with whom he was getting reunited after years. After Matt took this decision it became more probable that the two had decided to stay together forever. But, though it seemed a smooth sail for the couple their ship of love had still not reached the shore!!

The couple justified the saying that, “Opposites Attract”. The reason for me saying this is that holding completely opposite views on things and when it comes to likes and dislikes was something that strengthened their bond even more. Matt was a lover of indie rock whereas Liz fancied Justin Timberlake and they loved to give their other half the freedom to pursue and do whatever one wanted.

Loved India

Matt frequently visited India as his job demanded it. He was very happy to see Liz also finding the country very nice and eventually, it became their second home. Liz started to accompany Matt on his tours to India and made many new friends there. They both felt a connection with the place and would often gel with Indian culture. They actively participated in traditional events and could also be seen draped in ethnic clothes.

The Taj Mahal as everybody knows is an epitome of the beautiful and everlasting bond that a man and woman in love share. So, there was no way that these lovebirds would miss a chance to visit it and proclaim their love towards each other. Matt was delighted to see the expression of amazement on Liz’s face after the visit and thanked Lord for it as this was his prime motive prior to taking her with him to India. They had waited for long and sacrificed a lot for moments like these.


Tying The Knot

Finally, the day came for which Liz and Matt Logelin had been waiting for so long. It was on August 13, 2005, that they married each other in the presence of their family and friends. One could easily tell seeing their faces the amount of joy and satisfaction their souls were drenched with. This didn’t come as a surprise for their dear ones as they were aware of the fact that marrying each other was the thing they had wanted for years.

They made a formidable couple as they loved each other a lot and had their respective careers on the rise. Everything seemed to be coming up perfectly for Liz who worked as an executive at Disney and Matt, a project manager at Yahoo. They loved each other like crazy and we’re going through a purple patch in their respective careers.
