Ahem, gentlemen, take notice: “What struck me about Matt’s online dating profile were his adorable smile (and dimples!), his ambition, and the fact that he was holding a puppy.” That’s what Marjorie initially thought of the man who would eventually become her husband. “Matt had moved to Houston for his residency at Texas Children’s Hospital after completing medical school at the University of Southern California,” she notes. “He did not know a single soul upon moving here, so he immediately signed up for online dating. I moved to Houston that same summer to intern at Texas Children’s Hospital while working on my MBA through Baylor University. Some friends of mine encouraged me to give eHarmony a try.” And there you have it. After eventually jetting back to California to retrieve his great-great-grandmother’s ring, then privately asking Marjorie’s dad for her hand in marriage, Matt popped the question in front of both sets of parents. He was, we’re happy to report, blessed with a hearty, “YES!!” The couple’s California Texas wedding at The Petroleum Club Of Houston paid homage to the bride’s and groom’s backgrounds, especially with the food: fish tacos and In-N-Out burgers for his, beef tenderloin and “Texas margaritas” for hers.Boxwood arrangements were sprinkled throughout the room to make it feel like a picturesque garden (but in the comfort of the great indoors—“Houston weather, you are too unpredictable for me!” the bride says), while Champagne, candles and a monogrammed mirror added sparkle, shimmer, and fizz to the fun at this lovely California Texas wedding.
